Daisy Ridley Says New ‘Star Wars’ Movie Is “Not What I Expected”
The biggest news to come out of last April’s Star Wars Celebration was the revelation that the story of Rey Skywalker will continue in a new film with Daisy Ridley reprising her iconic role.
While the Star Wars sequel trilogy was something of a mixed bag, it also helped create a new generation of fans, many of whom view Rey as the ultimate Star Wars hero.
A Hero’s Welcome
Ridley’s appearance at the Star Wars Celebration was not announced, but when she surprised the audience, the crowd went wild.
In a recent interview with Collider, Ridley revealed that she was nervous before appearing on stage at the Star Wars gathering, but then thrilled with the response.
“It was such a nice reception. I was [soiling] myself before I went on stage, because no one knew I was going to that. No one knew I was going to Celebration, bar like Kathy [Kennedy] and there were a couple of people. I was so nervous. Oh my God. It was such a wonderful reception.”
Ridley Says Fans Will Be Excited
While Ridley hasn’t read the finished script for the next chapter in Rey Skywalker’s school, she says the story is very exciting.
“I know the storyline for one film. That’s not to say that that’s all it is, but that’s what I was told about. And I imagine it will be the next film, I think. I mean, again, I don’t know, post strikes and everything, how quickly everything will start up again. But yes, so far, I know the story of one film and I think people will be very excited.”
When Will We See Rey Skywalker Again
The upcoming Rey Skywalker film still does not have a release date, and production has not started yet.
Still, the prospect of the Star Wars story continuing is exciting. I, for one, can’t wait.
