Your Lord knows very well what is in your heart. Your soul suffices this day as a reckoner against you. I need no witnesses. You do not listen to your soul, but listen instead to your anger and your rage.
What I get from the flashback is that Reys parents were taken. Probably by Rey? (Although he must have been extremely young to do that, maybe Snoke?). If we have to believe Maz Kanata her parents are someone else: they will not come back. But someone might" or something like that, referring to Luke.
I think Rey's from a new family. I'd prefer it otherwise it would seem the Force can only run through the Skywalker family. To broaden the franchise and give it some longevity, it'd be better if she's not a Skywalker.
Well, for one it IS strange that a lightsaber does that. The Force is created by all living beings, not by lifeless metal. In the entire saga we see people losing or damaging their lightsabres so much, that I doubt a metal object can be connected in the Force.
Unless... the Force uses it to guide someone to his or her destiny. QGJ was led to meet Anakin. They were not related and yet the Force led QGJ to Anakin. Same could be happening here: the Force uses the lightsaber to bring Rey to Luke so she can be trained.
It could be of course, that she is a Skywalker, but after the sudden and kinda weird connection between Luke and Leia as siblings, I hope they make Rey a completely fresh character with no other relation than being strong with the Force. Just like QGJ and Anakin.
Their is already a new generation of Skywalker around after all.
Lulz, personally, I don't think it could be any more obvious that Rey is Luke's daughter. Kylo knows this random student and decides to save her due to their incredibly deep relationship he developed with her at 5 and he at 15. The lightsaber likes this random. Leia sends this random to find the brother she's been looking for, for a decade and a half, alone. This random is more powerful than Kylo Ren. "It is you, (random)!"
That's just shitty writing to make her anything but Luke's daughter.

There's a fairly large gulf between 'random' and 'Luke's daughter'. There can be a reason for all that without there having to be a bloodline. We're in a galaxy where there can be chosen ones, after all.
And what is this 'awakening in the Force'? The very title of the film isn't explained yet. The sabre thing does suggest bloodline- or at least very close connection- but I think the Rey thing could go a lot of ways.
"We've got maybe seconds before Darth Rosenberg grinds everybody into Jawa burgers and not one of you buds has the midi-chlorians to stop her!"
There's a zero percent chance Han and Leia are Rey's parents. Like absolute zero.
No, we're in a galaxy with A, as in singular, Chosen One. And yes, there must be a bloodline because that's the entire focus of the saga. Anakin Skywalker and his family.
Except, Kathleen Kennedy has already said that the episodic movies are about the Skywalker family. The Force Awakening was obviously referring to it awakening in Rey, with the saber before and her defeating Ren at the very end. There's really no question at this point.
“The saga films focus on the Skywalker family. The stories follow a linear narrative that connects to the previous six films. The Force Awakens follows Return of the Jedi and continues that generational story. The Anthology films offer opportunities to explore fresh characters, new storylines, and a variety of genres inside the Star Wars universe.”

Am I the only person who remembers that teaser trailer...?
This is Luke talking about how strong the Force is in his family, mentioning his fathers connection to the Force, his own, and his sisters (Leia). The only force using characters not refered to are Kylo and Rey. If he was talking to Kylo, he would say "your mother" (Leia) and not "my sister". The same would be the case if he was talking to another child of Leia.
So he is obviously talking to his own child here. And the only character left for that position is Rey. There is also no other reasonable explanation for Leia sending Rey to find Luke on her own. And this is also explains Luke's reaction, whe she reaches him.
