Daisy Ridley Might Not Be Done With Star Wars After All

Turns out we still might see Rey in the Star Wars galaxy after Episode IX.

Last week, Daisy Ridley hinted to Rolling Stone that she doesn't plan to play the mysterious character again after the 2019 sequel to The Last Jedi. But now she claims her quote was taken out of context.

Speaking to ComicBook.com, Ridley said, "I was misquoted. I was asked–by the way, at the end of a very long day, at the end of a very long shoot–I was asked how I felt going forward. And I said, in my mind, the story finishes at Episode IX."

She said she meant that Episode IX will just be the conclusion to the current saga, not that she'll never play the character again. "To me, Star Wars is in threes. [Episodes] IV, V, VI; I, II, III; VII, VIII, IX," Ridley said. "So, for me, that's what I was signing on to: VIIVIIIIX. So that's really what I was answering. And I think, for now, I'm not saying forever."

Here's her original quote: "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."

Either way, we probably wouldn't see Rey again for a while. The next Star Wars trilogy will be something entirely new from the mind of The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson. It'll take place in a previously unexplored corner of the galaxy and feature entirely new characters. 

But just as Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, and the late Carrie Fisher returned for the current trilogy, it would make sense for Rey to appear again somewhere down the line. That is, of course, if the character survives.

We'll find out a little more when The Last Jedi hits theaters Dec. 15. Episode IX, directed by J.J. Abrams, will arrive Dec. 20, 2019.
