Daisy Ridley spotted at Lucasfilm office! What does this mean for Rey’s future in Star Wars? We discuss it all in here
Star Wars Sequel Trilogy was not received as well as Lucasfilm expected. The plotlines were criticized for not being thought-out and the characters were hated for being bland. Rey especially was a divisive character in the fandom and was termed as a Mary Sue by many. However, regardless of your thoughts on the character, it looks like she might be back, as Daisy Ridley has posted an eyebrow raising photo on her Instagram.
It has been about 5 years since the end of the Sequel Trilogy. But Rey hasn’t been seen or referenced in any other Star Wars project. As such many thought that we will probably not see her anytime soon. But that might not be true if Daisy Ridley’s latest post is anything to go by.
The actress posted a photo of Yoda in the Lucasfilm offices and sent fans into a tizzy. Check out the photo above. And with this one pic, she kickstarted fan speculation about whether Rey was back in the galaxy far far away.
One fan commented, “Daisy Ridley is at Lucasfilm, make of that what you will”. Another one said, “Okay, Daisy Ridley shared this on Insta Stories… Stay calm. EVERYONE STAY CALM!!!! #StarWars #ReturnOfRey”. Another chimed in with, “Daisy??? At Lucasfilm????? Hello?”.
After the divisive response to the Sequel Trilogy, not a peep was heard from Lucasfilm about fleshing out the characters further. In fact there were rumours that Lucasfilm was considering scrapping the entire Trilogy and starting over. But if this photo is anything to go by, then something might be cooking.
However, we would advise you to reign in your expectations as Daisy later clarified on Instagram that it was just a lunch meeting. But who knows what was discussed there? It remains to be seen if anything is indeed in development with Rey.
Tell us your thoughts on Rey’s possible return.
