Daisy Ridley Clarifies Reports That She's Leaving 'Star Wars' After 'Episode IX'

Daisy Ridley Clarifies Reports That She's Leaving 'Star Wars' After 'Episode IX'

It's a very vague word, but as is always the case with these opening crawls, we usually need at least a full first sentence to place them into context.

"This I can do", Johnson replied.

Director Rian Johnson has revealed what the opening word for Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be. And instead of letting stunt doubles do the hard work, he wants to be one to take her on."One thing I want to do is to do the whole fight by myself".

Assistant fight coordinator Lian Yang calls the star of Star Wars a "quick learner" and says she learned everything for the scene "in an hour and a half".




Daisy Ridley is clarifying reports that she's done playing Rey after Star Wars: Episode IX, where she implied that after three movies she thought the story would end.

"Oh no, no, Lando's not - I love that character so much, but there just wasn't space for it", Johnson said, gesturing towards his sizable main cast.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, picking up after the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, also returns Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Dohmnall Gleeson, and Carrie Fisher alongside newcomers like Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" arrives in theaters on December 15.
