Daisy Ridley stars in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ as ‘Rey’. About a month ago, we learned of the names of the characters that are featured in the teaser trailer for the upcoming ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ film – John Boyega as Finn, Daisy Ridley as Rey, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, the cloaked guy as Kylo Ren, and the ever-so-cute droid BB-8. In a recent report by Starwars7news.com, it looks like Daisy Ridley’s character will be involved in a major plot twist.
It was reported that the name ‘Rey’ would only be an alias for Daisy Ridley’s character at the beginning of the film, and that her real name would surface in a plot twist by the conclusion of the film. Many fans suggest that Rey could be the daughter of Han Solo and Leia Skywalker – which is quite possible, given that Daisy Ridley resembles both Natalie Portman (who played Padme Amidala in the prequel trilogy) and Carrie Fisher, who portrays ‘Queen’ Leia in the upcoming film.
Other theories and speculations include:
Han Solo may die in this movie. The website Making Star Wars went deep into this after a trusted source provided them details of what was shot at Pinewood. According to their source, Han Solo would confront Kylo Ren at the ramparts of the Evil Castle, to which the latter would silence the conversation forever.
There would be a character named ‘Original Warrior’.
Luke Skywalker will only appear in a scene at the conclusion of the movie when a character named
‘Kira’ would return his lightstaber.
‘Queen’ Leia will be in a leadership role and would have something up her sleeve codenamed the’Sledgehammer’ to combat the Empire’s ‘Catapult’.
‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ opens in theaters on December 18, 2015.
“I can’t speak for the cast and crew, I can just speak for myself, but for me I thought, ‘Don’t you want to wait so you can get the real thing?’ And also, the [plot theories] that get that formulated based on these things — they couldn’t be more far off-base.” That’s Oscar Isaac, one of the new cast members in the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens and member of the Fun Police there.
While Isaac may be down on fans speculating on the nature of the heavily under-wraps plot for the latest return to a galaxy far, far away – and like, check your script privilege mate, you already know what happens, all the rest of us have are rumours and hearsay – the internet has been a hive of such theories since the existence of a new Star Wars was announced.
Even following that long-awaited first teaser trailer, details are very thin on what The Force Awakens will actually be about, let alone who Isaac – or any of the new cast members – will be playing. And how do all the old guard factor in, too?
Thankfully, geeks are more than willing to fill in any such gaps. Culled from across the web, with speculation on everything from severed hands to marital statuses, here are ten shocking (but believable) theories about Star Wars 7…
