Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Theory

We open the the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story trailer with an English, dark-haired girl who seems to be our hero.  Let's get right into the theorizing here and say "Could this be Rey's late mother?"  Think about it.  She may be eight to ten years senior Luke Skywalker's age, but plenty of guys like older chicks.  This would explain why Rey (who many of us believe is Luke's daughter) has very few physical characteristics in common with Luke.  He is a blond-haired, American man.  Rey is a British-accented, black-haired woman.  Sounds a lot more like Jyn Erso (Rogue One's female protagonist) than Master Skywalker.  But what do I know?  I haven't slept in four days and am on all kinds of cough syrup.  In fact, as I type this my hands appear to be morphing into large sticks of butter.  Good day.
