Daisy Ridley To Become Tracer in Overwatch?
I do not play many non-Star Wars video games. Never have. But, if I suddenly had a lot of time on my hands, “Overwatch” would be the game I’d love to pick up.
And if there is one character I’d love to know more about, it’s Tracer.
And now I see rumors of Daisy Ridley taking over that role in a possible Overwatch movie?
Wow. Just wow.
Daisy As Tracer?
Today, WeGotThisCovered.com reported that a source they trust (one that had dropped that Ahsoka Tano would appear in The Mandalorian) said that Ridley would be the first choice to play Tracer in an upcoming Overwatch project:

[The] fiercely competitive shooter Overwatch is likely next-in-line to get a cinematic adventure, with one actor already being eyed to play a key character. Best known for portraying Rey in Disney’s Star Wars Sequel Trilogy, Daisy Ridley is reportedly the top choice to play Lena Oxton or, as most know her, Tracer.
In what’s assuredly no coincidence, both Ridley and Tracer hail from London, England and with the latter noted as having a thick British accent in the game, it’s hardly surprising that the filmmakers would seek out an individual with that same recognizable twang associated with residents of the country’s capital. It’s worth noting, too, that the pair are almost identical in age and even look somewhat similar facially.
Now, this is not a new idea. WGTC is right – Tracer and Daisy do look and sound alike.
So this isn’t the first time anyone had proposed the match.
Don’t Worry, loves. Cavalry’s here!
Now, check out the very Disney-looking cinematic trailer (where you meet Tracer):
And, have a look at Daisy talking about working on a scene in The Last Jedi:
However, Daisy Ridley is NOT LEAVING Star Wars. Her role is currently complete. So, you can forget that clickbait.
And, I must say, this sounds a lot like what we heard about another comic book movie in which Ms. Ridley was supposed to headline.
You remember, Tomb Raider? Yah. Nope.
SO, the best thing I can do is to remind you, “always in motion is the future.”
