Program Notes

This compelling theme was composed to introduce the heroine that first appeared in the long-awaited film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Not a typical ballad, this dynamic work features a moderately driving pulse with a totally memorable melody.

- Program Note from publisher


Rey is a character in the Star Wars franchise and the main protagonist of the sequel film trilogy. Rey is introduced as a scavenger who was abandoned on the planet Jakku when she was a child. She becomes involved in the Resistance's conflict with the First Order. Powerfully Force-sensitive, Rey trains to be a Jedi under siblings Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, and faces adversaries such as Kylo Ren, Supreme Leader Snoke and the resurrected Emperor Palpatine—who is revealed to be her grandfather in The Rise of Skywalker. Despite being enemies, Rey and Kylo Ren share a connection called a 'Force dyad' and eventually become romantically involved with one another. Following Palpatine's final defeat and her own resurrection, Rey adopts the name Rey Skywalker to honor her mentors and their family legacy and renounce her lineage. As the last remaining Jedi, she makes it her mission to rebuild the Jedi Order.
