Star Wars: Don't Expect To See Rey Again After Episode IX

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Daisy Ridley made it pretty clear that she doesn't intend to return to the Star Wars universe once filming of Star Wars: Episode IX is complete... At least for now.

"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," Ridley said. "So in my head, it's three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out."

Sounds pretty final. However, as we know, even death isn't enough to keep your face off the screen and the actress herself hasn't ruled out returning for another appearance in the long term.



We've still got two more whole films before Daisy hangs up her poncho for good - starting with Star Wars: The Last Jedi on 14th December and then the J. J. Abrams directed untitled trilogy finale, Episode IX. 

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to arrive in UK cinemas on December 14th. It's directed by Rian Johnson and starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Benicio Del Toro, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie.

Star Wars

Star Wars is a science fiction film series created by George Lucas. It debuted in 1977 and the first film was quickly retitled to Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. It was followed by two sequels - The Empire Strikes Back in 1980 and Return of the Jedi in 1983. A trilogy of prequel films were launched in 1999 with The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. In 2015 Star Wars returned to the screens for a new trilogy under the control of Disney with The Force Awakens directed by J J Abrams.

A series of spin-offs were launched in 2016 with Gareth Edwards' Rogue One and 2017 will see the second film in the new trilogy, Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.

Another spin-off will be released in 2018 - Solo - which tells the story of Han Solo before the original Star Wars film and 2019 will round off the third trilogy with the untitled Episode IX.

A fourth trilogy of films has been announced for release after 2020 which will be overseen by Rian Johnson and they will feature entirely new characters and an entirely separate story.

In addition, there are the TV series The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels and a new as yet untitled live action series due to debut some time after 2020.
