No, it’s not who Rey’s parents are  (we know we’re gonna get the answer to that one)… It’s not who is Supreme Leader Snoke is (hopefully, he’s really fifteen feet tall!)… It’s not even how Kylo Ren got all that hair in that helmet (though that’s a question that begs to be answered)… No, it’s how did C-3PO get his red arm?!
