'Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker': Rey Has Become A Better Fighter

Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley Unsurprised by Last Jedi Backlash

Ridley might not have offered an insight into what to expect in regard to this specific question, yet she did offer another perplexing answer how the tone of the new film will be a departure from its predecessors. If you thought that Sith Lord answered this question in The Last Jedi that they were junk traders who sold Rey for alcohol, then you'll be surprised to know that it might not be the right answer.

JJ Abrams was not the first choice to direct Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.

"It's just a different thing", she said. Daisy thinks so and I know the fans hope so. Even though she doesn't agree with it, the actress revealed that she wasn't surprised at all by the online controversy surrounding the latest installment in the Star Wars saga.

'Genre-wise, it's different from the other two, which will become clear when the film comes out. Ridley answered: "Everyone's going to have an opinion now anyway on the internet, but I also think it's fair".

Ridley's character Rey was one of three new characters introduced in The Force Awakens, along with John Boyega's Finn and Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron.

It was one of the main points of contention dissatisfied viewers had for Last Jedi director Rian Johnson, whose take on the Star Wars franchise divided audiences. Ridley continued, "It doesn't mean they were - ultimately, Rian's a filmmaker and one person can't dictate how a film is supposed to be - but freedom of expression, sure". In April, Abrams said "there's more to the story than you've seen" when discussing Rey's parents in an interview with ABC News. "I feel people are going to be satisfied".

Daisy Ridley believes that The Rise of Skywalker will serve as a satisfying ending to the Skywalker Sage. Yeah there might have been a few things that I did not agree with but I am happy we are getting so much STAR WARS content now. So, excuse me if I allow myself to get caught up in the hype train for a little and get to geek out over what's in store of all the Star Wars fans later this year.
