Rey’s True Identity Revealed in STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS Disney Infinity?

Update:

It's been pointed out that it has been confirmed that Kylo Ren says "curses" NOT "cousin" because it's a reaction to him being hit by Rey. She's still most likely Luke's daughter, though. I guess we'll just have to wait and see!

Original article follows:

There has been a lot of fan speculation regarding the lead character in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey, and who she might be related to. It looks like her true identity may have been revealed in Disney Infinity’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens expansion.

If you don’t want to know what her possible relationship is with the characters in Star Wars, then don’t read ahead because of possible SPOILERS. Of course, if this bit of information has been put into an official Disney game then Disney obviously wants you to know it.

We’ve already been told that everything involving Star Wars since Disney has taken over the franchise will be considered canon. Below you’ll find a video featuring gameplay from The Force Awakens Disney Infinity game, and in a section of it, we see Rey fighting against Kylo Ren.

At around the 20:30 mark in the video you hear Kylo Ren yell at Rey, “Face me, cousin!”

So there it is. If the game is following what the movies are doing, and these characters are really cousins, then that would confirm that Luke Skywalker is Rey’s father as a lot of fans suspected. After all, the movie was full of heavy suggestions that this was the case. I was personally hoping for a different outcome, but that’s ok. We’ll get to see how this reveal plays out in Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII, and it will be quite a shock for her to learn the truth, unless she already knows it deep down inside.

There’s always a chance that Disney Infinity could have made a mistake somehow. We’ll find out on May 26th, 2017 when Episode VIII hits theaters!
