Daisy Ridley talks Star Wars


During a recent interview with MTV, Daisy Ridley advised she doesn’t think Rey is a Jedi. She also revealed that Star Wars: Episode VIII will pick up right where The Force Awakens left off and it will be “darker”. Here are highlights:

On Rey’s parentage: “I think the amazing thing about [Episode VII] is that Finn and Rey don’t come from anywhere, and they find a place. So to me, it’s funny that people think it’s so important, because I don’t really think it is.”

On if Rey becomes a Jedi: I don’t know if I am a Jedi… I don’t think I am. We’ve had this debate as to whether Leia is because she uses her Force powers. Just because she’s not like, oh I’m going on an adventure like Luke doesn’t make her any less Forceful.”
