Rey’s Story Ends After ‘Star Wars: Episode IX’ According To Daisy Ridley

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ is less than two weeks away, and Daisy Ridley is ready to bail on the franchise. During an interview with Rolling Stone, Ridley told Brian Hiatt she is done after Episode IX.

Here is the exchange:

She doesn’t want to play the character after the next movie. “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.”

But, um, doesn’t that sort of sound like a yes? “No,” she says again, smiling a little. “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.”

What do you think of Ridley’s comments? Do you think Disney should recast Rey? Only time and box office dollars will tell.
