Daisy Ridley has revealed that Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker will answer at least one burning question about her character Rey.
In a recent USA Today interview, she said that the concluding episode of the new Star Wars trilogy feels like a different genre than the other two, in a way that “will become clear” when it comes out.
Explaining this, she said that the upcoming Episode IX is “quite emotional” and has a “different drive” than the earlier films, but is still “a lot of fun.”
Speaking about the film’s cast, which includes newcomer Keri Russell, she said she enjoyed getting “back together” with John Boyega and spending with with Oscar Isaac.
“To me, it felt like kids going on an adventure,” she said of the shoot, suggesting that Rey, Finn and Poe will join forces after being separated in the last one.
She also hinted that the film will clear up one of the most burning questions of the new trilogy, that of Rey’s parentage.
During The Last Jedi, Adam Driver‘s Kylo Ren told her that her parents were “filthy junk traders” who sold her for drinking money and were “dead in a pauper’s grave in the Jakku desert.”
Many wondered whether this was true, and Daisy Ridley confirmed there’s definitely more to the story.
“[Director J.J. Abrams] did say the question is answered,” she said. “So at the end of the film, you do know what the dealio is.”
The film is out in Australia on December 29, so you’ll have to wait until then to find out what that means.
