A Surprising Announcement
Despite the backlash and criticism faced by the cast of the latest Star Wars movie trilogy, Daisy Ridley shocked fans when she revealed at Star Wars Celebration that she would be returning to a galaxy far, far away. After finding success in films, streaming originals, and video games, why would she choose to take another chance with the struggling franchise?
Not What She Expected
In a recent interview, Ridley discussed her upcoming Rey movie and admitted that it wasn't what she anticipated. She described the warm reception she received at Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023 and expressed her excitement for the project. Ridley's statement about the movie surprising fans has caught the attention of many.
A Mysterious Project
Little is known about the new movie, other than the fact that it will be directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy and set 15 years after The Rise of Skywalker. The story will follow Rey as she tries to rebuild the Jedi Order. It remains uncertain whether this will be Episode X or a standalone film. Regardless, Ridley's claim that it will surprise fans is significant.
A Desire for Surprise
Ridley's positive attitude towards her experience in the Star Wars franchise stands out among her co-stars. She understands the pressure, scrutiny, and animosity that can come with being a part of this iconic series. Despite all of that, when Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy asked her to return, she accepted. The story that Lucasfilm wants to tell must be something truly special to convince Ridley to step back into the Star Wars gauntlet.
Lucasfilm's Future Projects
While Ridley prepares to reprise her role as Rey, Lucasfilm is busy working on several Star Wars series, including Andor season 2, The Acolyte, and Skeleton Crew, after the recent strikes.
