The Star Wars franchise triumphantly returned to theaters two years ago with “The Force Awakens” and the franchise put Daisy Ridley’s Rey front and center. Ever since the film was released fans have been talking about Rey and coming up with their own theories in regards to who her parents are, and we’ll all be looking for answers when “The Last Jedi” hits theaters in December.
It was recently announced that director Rian Johnson will be creating a new Star Wars trilogy, but it will be set in a different part of the galaxy and it will introduce new characters to the Star Wars universe.
There’s been a lot of speculation about where the saga will go after “Episode IX” is released, but Daisy Ridley recently told Rolling Stone that she’s not interested in playing Rey in another trilogy.
“No,” she says flatly. “For me, I didn’t really know what I was signing on to. I hadn’t read the script, but from what I could tell, it was really nice people involved, so I was just like, ‘Awesome.’ Now I think I am even luckier than I knew then, to be part of something that feels so like coming home now.”
She reiterated that she’s excited to film “Episode IX” but she thinks that after three films she’ll be ready to walk away for a while.
“No, no, no. I am really, really excited to do the third thing and round it out, because ultimately, what I was signing on to was three films. So in my head, it’s three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out.”
Even though she’s currently ruling out the idea of starring in another trilogy, Ridley didn’t count out the idea of possibly returning to the franchise 30 years down the road.
“Who knows? I honestly feel like the world may end in the next 30 years, so, if in 30 years we are not living underground in a series of interconnected cells … then sure. Maybe. But again, it’s like, who knows. Because the thing I thought was so amazing, was people really wanted it. And it was done by people who really love it.”
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” will arrive in theaters on December 15, 2017.
