If there’s one thing awards season taught us, it’s that Room’s incredibly talented young actor Jacob Tremblay is a massive Star Wars fan.

We got out first hint that he loved the galaxy far, far away when he had a lightsaber battle with Oscar Isaac at the Golden Globes.

Then he said he’d be keeping his Critics’ Choice Award beside his Millennium Falcon, and won hearts all over the internet when he revealed that he was telling the truth.

And then he only went and wore Millennium Falcon cufflinks and Darth Vader socks on the Oscars red carpet – like a boss.

So, when he got a new dog and needed a name for her, where do you think Tremblay turned to for inspi-REY-tion?


The Force is strong with this one.

Met #Rey, she is awesome, but @daisyridley is even cooler! #oscars #roomthemovie #starwars
