Nothing good can last forever. That’s one of the sad realities of life. And despite that, studios are keen to churn out movie after movie in these blockbuster franchises.
In addition the Marvel Cinematic Universe, one franchise that doesn’t seem anywhere close to ending any time soon is Star Wars. The way Disney has set things up, it looks like we’ll be getting a new film every year in perpetuity. With that in mind, it seems inevitable that following Star Wars: Episode IX, they’d eventually get back to Rey and company.
But is that something the actors would be up for? Speaking with Rolling Stone, actress Daisy Ridley seems to rule out that possibility. Rolling Stone begins by stating that the character’s fate is “pretty much set,” and when asked about returning, Ridley said:
“No. For me, I didn’t really know what I was signing on to. I hadn’t read the script, but from what I could tell, it was really nice people involved, so I was just like, ‘Awesome.’ Now I think I am even luckier than I knew then, to be part of something that feels so like coming home now.”
It was a bit of a confusing answer, and the outlet asked if that response coudl be seen as yes to return. Ridley was more blunt with her next response.
“No, no, no. I am really, really excited to do the third thing and round it out, because ultimately, what I was signing on to was three films. So in my head, it’s three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out.”
With that mindset already in the actress, it makes sense that Lucasfilm would be looking to expand the universe in a new trilogy from Rian Johnson. Now it seems clear that this trilogy will actually take the place of the saga films rather than the anthologies.
Do you think it’s a good move for Ridley to shut the door on her returning to the franchise after Episode IX? Let us know your thoughts down below!
