The strange connection between Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) is expected to be explored further in “Star Wars: Episode 9.” According to a new theory, the Force connection between them that was established by Snoke (Andy Serkis) may have something to do with what was seen in the “Rebels” animation series.

All the stories being told in the “Star Wars” universe after the Disney takeover are connected. According to a theory by CBR, the connection will become more apparent in the upcoming film.

Snoke was able to forge a connection between Kylo Ren and Rey using the Force. How was he able build such a strong bond for so long? The ability may have something to do with the World between worlds that was seen in the “Rebels” TV series.

Ezra (Voice by Taylor Gray) was able to gain entry into the World between worlds, something that the Emperor (Voice by Ian McDiarmid) too wanted. The mystical place blends time and space in a way that allows people to access any moment in time and even change the past. This mysterious world works like the Force.

While “Star Wars: Episode 9” may not change past events, the World between worlds may be used to explain the connection between Kylo Ren and Rey, especially when it comes to a rumored fight scene between the two of them. The major action sequence is supposed to take the two characters to different worlds like Hoth, Tatooine, Naboo, Mustafar, and Coruscant; and the World between worlds may be the way they are able to do it.

The connection between Rey and Kylo Ren is multifaceted and complicated. In a previous interview with Vanity Fair, Ridley said that the relationship between her character the leader of the First Order is not based on “any one thing.” A source close to the movie also told the outlet that the Force connection between the two characters is “even deeper” than what the fans think.

Speaking with the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Ridley teased the bight lightsaber duel between Rey and Kylo Ren is a “great fight” in “Star Wars: Episode 9.” It remains to be seen how the antagonistic relationship between the two characters will evolve in the film.
