During a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Daisy Ridley spoke about her future in the “Star Wars” universe, although she wasn’t able to offer fans any real clarity. While she believes that Rey had a great ending, she wouldn’t pass on an opportunity to return to the role if offered to do so, but she’s not aware of any such plans right now.
“I feel like Rey’s story ended in a wonderful way with the last film,” Ridley said, adding, “So I really don’t know if there are plans. I just don’t know. But ultimately, I loved my experience, I loved what I got to do and I love the people I got to work with. So, should that happen again, even once, amazing.”
While Ridley reiterates that there are no plans for her to return, or at least none that she’s aware of or can currently reveal in public, it wouldn’t exactly be a stretch for Lucasfilm to bring her back. After all, the sequel trilogy brought back a lot of the big iconic characters from the past, like Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Han Solo (Harrison Ford), and Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher). The recent Disney+ series “Obi-Wan Kenobi” even found Ewan McGregor reprising the title role and Hayden Christensen appearing again as Darth Vader. Basically, anything can happen in “Star Wars.”
