Actress Daisy Ridley clarified her comments which implied that she might not be playing Rey after Star Wars: Episode IX.
Daisy Ridley promised that she’s not ruling out the possibility for more Rey, despite only signing on for The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi and Episode IX:
“When I did sign up I did sign up for three films… and that’s where I sort of saw the story ending, JJ (Abrams, The Force Awakens director) said the same thing. I think everyone has perhaps taken that as me going, ‘I don’t want anything to do with it’ which is vastly untrue because this is awesome.”
It’s too early to speculate about which characters could be around post-Episode IX, as The Last Jedi isn’t out yet and the fate of the characters is still a mystery to the movie-going audience.
In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.
Directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15, 2017.
