It’s official Daisy Ridley is coming back to the Star Wars universe.
Fans erupted in delight at the Star Wars Celebration in London when Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy announced that not only are three new movies in the pipeline, but one of them will see Ridley return as Rey too.
Ridley will reprise her titular role in a movie led by Ms. Marvel director Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, which takes place 15 years after The Rise of Skywalker ends.
While most of the details have been kept under wraps about the project, it seems she will play an integral role in rebuilding the new Jedi world order.
Ridley said “I am so…so…thrilled to be at the celebrations with you all in London. Thank you! Sharmeen for having me back, I’m very thrilled to be continuing this journey.”
