    The fact they've only used Han and Leia for any major, Big 3 focused stories really does make Rey Solo feel less likely. While it's not hard to see them ordering a Leia focused storyline to conceal another kid, it does feel like if that was the case, a focus on Luke would be more likely.

    Maybe. I mean, I do know people who've lost children and they don't dwell on it all the time. So, something like Bloodline could work in theory with the "Rey Solo" model despite making no mention to a lost daughter (birth name Jaina, maybe ), under those circumstances.

    However, to be totally honest, it seems very odd that when discussing their son's fall that they didn't mention that they had previously lost another child through other circumstances (kidnapping, wend missing, presumed killed, or whatever). You'd think that would come up somehow in a discussion like that.

    The other major problem I have with Rey being a Solo is that the Force Awakens novelizations very strongly indicate that her actual parents were the ones who left her on Jakku. At any rate, they do establish that whoever did leave her there did love her like a daughter (whether through biological connections or some kid of adoption) and were sincere about planning to come back for her. While that model could work with the Solo theory (Rey gets kidnapped as infant or something, gets separated somehow from the kidnappers and winds up with people who don't know who she really is but take her as their own, then have to leave her on Jakku, or something like that), it seems needlessly complicated, esp. since you would think that there would be more clues in the movie proper if Rey really had met her biological father.

    (Note: movie novelizations from The Force Awakens onward are fully canon, but kind of squishy in continuity, due to minor discrepancies in the movie in terms of details, exacts of conversations, and the like. The rule seems to be that all new information is canon, but if the scenario in which it's presented doesn't match the movie -- like the extended conversation between Snoke and Kylo about Darth Vader -- that specific version of the scene is essentially non-canon despite what we learn being canon.

    Between that and it seeming that if something in a new movie or other tie-in contradicts the novelization, the novelization is the one considered inaccurate, there is a distinct possibility that the novelization may be proven wrong in regards to the clues to Rey's past. However, at the moment, there's no reason to consider it invalid.)
