"Star Wars" film franchise will introduce a set of new characters in "The Force Awakens" and one of them will be a scavenger by the name Rey, to be played by Daisy Ridley. Since director JJ Abrams and team did not release enough details about her, fans are eager to know if she is related to any of the three iconic characters.

While speculations are rife that Ridley's character is the daughter of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher), a new fan theory suggests that she could be related to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

A follower of the epic space opera monikered as Jakku_Off posted the theory on Reddit. He speculated that "The Force Awakens" will mainly revolve around Rey's quest for Jedi father with the help of her uncle Solo.

"Rey being Han and Leia's child is a popular theory, but personally it just doesn't feel right if it's her Uncle she's looking for. Searching for Jedi father with the help of her Uncle Han, his wily old best friend, sounds better," he wrote.

The social media user also stated that the seventh instalment of "Star Wars" might introduce Skywalker's love interest. According to him, the character could have inspired Jedi Master to establish the academy; he dies while "protecting the Jedi students from the Knights of Ren".

In the meantime, another "Star Wars" follower speculated that the franchise might introduce new alien species in the upcoming movie. "In such a large galaxy, it doesn't make sense that certain species ALWAYS show up except for the prolific few, such as humans," he wrote.

Meanwhile, many fans were eagerly waiting for "The Force Awakens" trailer or teaser this week after reading a post on the official website of British Board of Film Classification (BBFC). The website had a few details about a 1.39-minute long sneak peek video set to be released on 11 September.

However, since the classification of the promotional clip describe it as a home video, a fan website stated that it could be the second teaser trailer "without the green MPAA information".

"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" is scheduled to hit screens on 18 December.
