Fans have always associated the name Jaina to be Han Solo and Princess Leia’s daughter in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” However, according to an unnamed source that name may not actually exist in the movie. Likewise, the source mentioned Han and Leia not only have a daughter but also a son.

Star Wars Underworld previously noted a leaked pirate scene in the movie featuring Han Solo (Harrison Ford), Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher). According to the site, Rey’s involvement in the scene sparks speculations she could actually be their daughter. Recently, a source confirmed with Jason Ward over at Making Star Wars that Rae (Rey) is indeed Han and Leia’s daughter and that they too have a son, Kylo Ren, who’s said to be the main villain in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”

Han Solo reportedly revealed to Finn (John Boyega) and Poe (Oscar Isaac) that Rey is his and Leia’s daughter, much to their surprise. According to the source, Luke Skywalker tried to help the resourceful and humorous Rey become a Jedi but she refused since she is afraid of becoming a member of a “force family.” However, at one point in the movie Poe supposedly catches her using the power of the force to move some things in her junkshop.

Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) on the other hand is said to be the brother of Rey, so that makes him the son of Princess Leia and Han Solo. According to the unnamed source, Ren “has been obsessed with his lineage for a few years and is somewhat an historian with a fascination with the Sith.” He is described as a “twisted” and arrogant X-Wing pilot who cares less for his family. No further details were revealed regarding his relationship with Han Solo, Princess Leia and Rey. But the source claims it’s clear there is “bad blood” between them.

A previous report from the International Business Times Australia also described the main villain in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” as someone who is “not as in control and slick” like Darth Vader. However, unlike Rey who fears being a member of a force family, Kylo Ren supposedly wants to be as powerful as his grandfather Darth Vader. It’s said he has even trained himself in the ways of the Sith and has plans to open the tomb his uncle, Luke Skywalker, has been guarding during his self-imposed exile. It’s believed the tomb holds the Ancient Sith Lord, who according to the source, may turn out to be Darth Plagues The Wise.
