Ridley: Baby Yoda Has Cuteness On Me
In the not-too-distant future, Todd Hewitt (Tom Holland) discovers Viola (Daisy Ridley), a mysterious girl who crash lands on his planet, where all the women have disappeared and the men are afflicted by “the Noise” – a force that puts all their thoughts on display. In this dangerous landscape, Viola’s life is threatened – and as Todd vows to protect her, he will have to discover his own inner power and unlock the planet’s dark secrets.
A Question of Cuteness?
However, the Star Wars story of the day is that Daisy Ridley recently remanded the question of cuteness to the discretion of the fandom.
And never mind Spidey!
Actually, it was to the website Fandom.com to which Daisy dropped the deets regarding her feelings about Grogu.
You see, Ridley spoke about a fellow orphan cum Force wielder and how her character Rey compares to Baby Yoda.
Eric Goldman speaking to Ridley — a fan of The Mandalorian — via video conference digressed from his questions regarding Chaos Walking to ponder:
When I jokingly asked how she felt about Rey and Grogu’s Force healing abilities and if she felt it was a competition or a bond, Ridley replied:
“Here’s the thing… Baby Yoda is immensely powerful but also Baby Yoda is almost cheating because he’s so sweet that whatever Baby Yoda did you’re like, ‘Aww!’ Whereas I’m a human so I don’t have that. So I feel like Baby Yoda has had an easier time being a Force healer because it’s Baby Yoda being a Force healer. We’re both good in that space but he definitely has cuteness on me.”
