Star Wars- Rey who meme

The opinions of the Star Wars fandom, as usual, are split on the final film in the Skywalker saga.

Some fans were delighted by Rise of Skywalker, while others felt it was a disappointing end to a film series that has stretched four decades. Regardless of how they felt about the film, however, Star Wars fans are united in enjoying the memes inspired by the movie. The most recent of these revolves around the film’s final line, so if you’re one of the rare fans who have not yet seen it, consider this is your only spoiler warning.

In the final scene of the film, Rey travels back to Tatooine to bury the lightsabers of Luke and Leia Skywalker. A woman approaches Rey and asked after her name. In response to Rey’s answer, the woman inquires, “Rey who?” The line, beloved by some viewers and despised by others, became prime meme material as people imagined alternative answers to “Rey Skywalker”.

“Rey who?”

*cue Emperor theme, low, subtle*

Rey’s eyes shimmer red.

“Rey Palpatine”

Circle wipe. Cue Imperial March instead of the same old finale fanfare.

(Might’ve turned the whole thing around for me.)

Others reimagined the ending with a line they found more fitting—and one that lets Rey be just Rey.

You probably should’ve been on the writing team!

“I’m Rey” “Rey who?”“Just one name, like Chewbacca. Rey”

“Who are you?”“Rey.”“Rey who?!”“Rey why don’t you mind your own goddamn business”

Whether you’re team Rey Nobody, Rey Skywalker, or Reyders of the Lost Ark, this meme lets Star Wars fans write their own ending to the Skywalker Saga.


Why did Rey bury those 2 lightsabers on Tatooine?
‘Somehow, Palpatine has returned’ is the best new ‘Star Wars’ meme
‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ is a film crafted by fan theory committee
Pandering to nostalgia, ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ is a huge letdown
