    The whole story plainly built up to it, from the wonderful the Force is strong in my family promos, the narrative build up, clues and learning throughout the movie, to the fantastic powerful ending which beautifully drove it home.
    They did everything but say the words out loud, which the movie didn't need.

    So of course because of that, adults, fans and the internet in their quest to be eternally miserable and unsatisfied, have decided - well they didn't spell it out enough so that's unsatisfying and disappointing!
    Or the opposite - No it's obvious they spelled it out to much so that's unsatisfying and disappointing!
    Either way they get to get to be eternally miserable and unsatisfied!

    Dedicating themselves to come up with an endless barrage of lame theories (they've convinced themselves are visionary) all to justify their misery and dissatisfaction with a wonderfully climactic and satisfying ending they can never enjoy.

    That is the story people, the entire internet need to stop deluding themselves.

    I'm with Daisy Ridley on this, I thought it was answered in The Force Awakens, it's what the movie wonderfully built up to. From the promos, to the unfolding, to the spectacular and powerful ending!

    Unless of course he didn't know she existed, or believed that she ceased to exist.

    Yeah, I always think that argument neglects the fact that Rey Skywalker has a giant unknown factor in Mama Skywalker who could easily be used to explain Rey's situation. I've always though that her being on Jakku and apparently left in Plutt's protection implied she was dropped off by someone who intended to come back, and that the someone probably took off for the next door Unknown Regions and the First Order.

    Cruel parents trying to get rid of her probably would have literally sold her to Plutt, but she's clearly in the same situation as everyone else and doesn't express hatred towards parents, so that's out. Neglectful or burdened parents probably would have found a better place to drop her off, or again been so obviously horrible she again wouldn't idealize them. And no responsible parent trying to set their kid up long term would leave them with Plutt as the permanent guardian.

    Plutt is a creature you would maybe pay to temporarily keep your kid safe when you intend to drop right back from wherever your going, using money and threats to ensure the most powerful person at Niima Outpost does your bidding. So, I figure Mama Skywalker, who concealed her daughter from Luke for some reason, went to investigate the First Order, dropped Rey off for a brief stay, then got killed/captured/marooned.

    No information about her parents doing anything to or about the First Order, but the novelizations do confirm that they planned to come back.

    Rey doesn't actually have any memories of being left on Jakku or anything before that (Rey's Survival Guide), although the novelizations do confirm that whoever left her there did love her.

    Maybe, although there's no information about the exacts of the deal made with Plutt (he did keep charge of her until she struck out on her own, barring her working with other scavengers during her childhood, per the Survival Guide) or what they did after leaving Jakku.
