In an interview on Good Morning America, Ridley was originally asked if fans would get to see appearances from Rey beyond Episode IX, and she suspiciously answered by saying “I mean, who can tell?”
Of course, Ridley did reveal in an interview with Buzzfeed’s AM to DM that she will not appear in the next Star Wars Trilogy, but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of Rey as a whole in Star Wars. Due to television shows, anthology films, cameos, etc., character returns can never be ruled out.
But, following this question on GMA, Ridley went on to shed some insight on her thoughts on the end of the Skywalker saga.
"“What I would say is I think it’s a brilliant end to the story. And like J.J. [Abrams] and Chris [Terrio] who writes as well have done an incredible job of like wrapping it up because there are so many references obviously to the nine films. But also exists in its own thing. So I think people are going to feel very satisfied.”"
There are several takeaways from Ridley’s quote on GMA.
First of all, she says that the ending is “brilliant.” It’s an interesting thought to wonder how the Skywalker storyline will finally be wrapped up, as this is over 40 years in the making.
Ridley also confirmed there will be references to all nine films, which is exciting. You have to wonder if characters like Anakin Skywalker or Obi-Wan Kenobi will make their returns given their importance in past Star Wars films.
Lastly, she also believes people will be “satisfied.” That’s arguably the most important takeaway from this quote. We’re living in a time where Star Wars fans have been divided. But, if Episode IX has a brilliant and satisfying ending, perhaps fans will be in agreement with how the Skywalker storyline ended.
Of course, only time will tell.
The Rise of Skywalker hits theaters on December 20th.
