star wars, the force awakens, force awakens, rey, daisy ridleyAnother day, another batch of new footage from "The Force Awakens," this time thanks to a new TV spot for the newest chapter of the "Star Wars" saga. And while fans may already have some theories about how the new characters are connected to the old, this promo seems to be pointing viewers to a specific familial bond.

The clip, which debuted this weekend, begins with a voiceover form Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong'o), who says in a dreamy voice, "I have lived long enough to see the same eyes in different people. I see your eyes. I know your eyes." Those words are spoken over images of Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford), which seem like more than a gentle suggestion that they are in fact father and daughter. Of course, nothing has been confirmed so far, and this could all be some clever misdirection to throw fans off the scent of the real person Rey is related to. (Perhaps she's the daughter of the MIA Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), who hasn't appeared in any of the "Force Awakens" promos so far? Or maybe it's Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron who's Han's son, since he's featured in the promo, too.)

Based on the last trailer, it seems Rey's been abandoned by her family at the beginning of the film; would Han and Leia (Carrie Fisher) really do that? We can't imagine the roguish Han is the greatest parent in the galaxy, but surely Leia would put her foot down when it came to raising their daughter.

We still have more than a month to stew over it all before we'll know for sure. "The Force Awakens" hits theaters on December 18.
