Daisy Ridley dreads finding Rey and the Star Wars universe

“I hope it will feel natural in a way, but also – I don’t know – that it will be a new adventure.”

A few days ago, Daisy Ridley confided to be “packed” by the prospect of taking over the role of Rey in the tenth opus of the saga Star Wars, New Jedi Order, which should begin filming soon. Scheduled for 2026, it will be the very first film in the franchise to be directed by a woman (Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy), a motivation for the British actress, in addition to “challenge” to revive a character five years after the release of Episode IX.

Especially when we know that his character will have an important role to play in this film, set fifteen years after the events of The Rise of Skylwalkerat a time when the Jedi rely on Rey to guide them towards a new order in the galaxy.

All this does not prevent the interpreter from dreading his return to the far, far away galaxy:

“Honestly, I had moments where I was like: 'I don't know if I remember what I did (as Rey)', she confides to Total Film. It's really strange. I think it will all be very different with a totally different team. I'm in a very different situation than I was in then. I'll probably be one of the adults, whereas at first I was the youngest on set, which is a strange feeling.”

It must be said that since its first appearance in Episode VII of Star Warsthe thirty-two-year-old actress has multiplied projects: at Kenneth Branagh (The crime of the Orient Express), Claire McCarthy (Ophelia), Doug Liman (Chaos Walking) or Judd Apatow (The bubble) And Rachel Lambert for whom she played the main role in The Dream Life of Miss Fran.

Upon entering the galactic universe imagined by George Lucas, Daisy Ridley was twenty-three years old. During the filming of sequelsthe actress grew up alongside a team that she hopes to find on the next part, although very impatient to work with Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy:

“I also hope that the crew will be largely the same. Obviously a lot of people have changed, but a lot of people have stayed the same throughout the three films, and there's something wonderful and heartwarming about that. to that. But I don't know. Everything remains to be seen. I hope it will seem natural in some way, but also – I don't know – that it will be a new adventure. is a bit of both.”

Before picking up her lightsaber, Daisy Ridley meets us in a swimsuit to Young Woman and the Sea, a biopic telling the story of Gertrude “Trudy” Ederle, the first woman to swim the English Channel. Set for May 31 in the United States, the French release date of the film Joachim Rønning has not yet been revealed.
