It might surprise some that with the sequel trilogy and the role of Rey Skywalker well and truly in her rear view mirror, Daisy Ridley watches and clearly loves The Mandalorian, but when talk turned to a possible Disney Plus series for Rey, she was quite clear that she believes Rey’s story came to a natural end.
“I think for me the beauty of Episode IX is it ends with such hope and such potential. I just feel like that was Rey’s perfect ending. The big battle was in Episodes VII, VIII, and IX,” Ridley said. “I think really she’s probably running around the forest somewhere having a great time [following the events of The Rise of Skywalker].”
She continued, “I feel totally, totally satisfied with how that story finished. I just don’t know what else she could do that I didn’t have to do. Also, there are so many amazing characters in Star Wars, that it’s sort of an amazing thing. I was watching the new episode of Mandalorian, and it’s just like the places it can go beyond even where it is now is so exciting.”
It must be comforting to know for these post-Sequel trilogy lead actors that should the desire ever take them, a Disney Plus series focusing on their characters would potentially not be far away.
