With December's Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker apparently set to close out the Skywalker Saga that had served as the main storyline throughout the entire space opera franchise thus far, fan expectations are understandably running high.
According to returning star Daisy Ridley, who has portrayed the sequel trilogy's aspiring Jedi Knight Rey since 2015's The Force Awakens, believes that Episode IX will be a fitting end to main story that began in the original 1977 film.
In an interview with People TV, Ridley was asked how she thought audiences would feel about the upcoming sequel. "I think very satisfied," she said. "Everything we were doing felt, in the moment, very good."
Details on The Rise of Skywalker have been kept largely under wrap. However, the film has been teased as the epic final conflict between the Resistance and the First Order while reflecting on the previous eight episodes of the main Star Wars saga.
Directed and co-written by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant. The film arrives Dec. 20.
