While this week belongs to Justice League, fans are one month away from perhaps the most anticipated film in the history of cinema, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Daisy Ridley, who plays the film’s heroine, Rey, recently spoke with USA Today, and talked about what will likely prove to be Rey’s biggest challenge:

“He looks mental. Snoke is an evil guy, if you can call him a guy. Snoke is one of those tests for Rey, and when I say testing, it’s the worst use of testing ever.”

From Ridley’s words it sounds like Rey is going to be pushed to the absolute limit by Snoke, in what ways remains to be seen, but if the trailer scene with her being suspended in air by Snoke is any indication, Rey is in for the fight of her life. In 30 days we will likely get to see Snoke in action, and see the extent of his powers, will he be the most powerful we’ve seen? I would say so, seeing how Rey is shaping up to be one of, if not the most powerful Jedi ever, she will need a formidable adversary.

I don’t think I have ever been this excited for a movie, the most recent trailer threw me for a pretty big loop, I was of course excited for a new Star Wars film, but the the trailer really ramped it up for me.  I expect this film to be somewhat bold with its narrative, and for Johnson to really push things forward. This is much different than the anticipation for Star Wars: The Force Awakens in that all the safe plays are out of the way, meaning we probably aren’t going to get a rehashing of The Empire Strikes Back, as we did with The Force Awakens/A New Hope.
