Only read on if you have seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens…
Right then. An interesting little detail has emerged regarding the sequence in Maz Kanata’s cantina, when Rey hears the Skywalker lightsaber calling to her.
The character calling out her name was…. Obi-Wan Kenobi. This was confirmed by voice actor James Arnold Taylor, who played the younger version of the Jedi knight on The Clone Wars cartoon.
He confirms he recorded this line for the movie, but was then recast with Ewan McGregor – who also played the Jedi Knight in the prequels.
@t_betts94 yes, it was me originally but they replaced my version with Ewan. I guess if I'm gonna be replaced it should be him! 😀

So, does this hint towards Reys parentage at all?
