It’s been months since Star Wars: The Force Awakens left theaters, but that hasn’t stopped fans from poring over every moment of the movie to try to discover any hidden secrets they might have missed. So while you’re waiting for Rogue One later this year and Episode VIII in 2017, why not see what they’ve discovered?

In a recent video, Screen Rant has explored ten of the wildest fan theories that are floating around the internet now that The Force Awakens is available on Blu-ray. Some seem far-fetched, but a few sound surprisingly believable.

One of those believable theories? Rey is the daughter of Han Solo and Leia Organa. No, it’s not one of the more exciting theories, but until we get a definitive answer, fans are going to continue to argue over the hero’s parentage.

A slightly more convoluted theory suggests that Kylo Ren might actually be a double agent working to bring down the First Order from the inside. There’s not a great deal of evidence supporting this theory at the moment, but there is a quick moment (blink and you’ll miss it) in Rey’s flashback where Kylo Ren appears to save her from someone who is about to attack her.

Is it all a guise? We’ll have to wait at least a couple of years to find out, but you can watch the full video from Screen Rant below:
