Daisy Ridley recently opened up about her excitement over her upcoming return to the Star Wars franchise.

Last year, it was officially announced that she is set to reprise the role of Rey Skywalker in an upcoming movie that is set several years after the events of The Rise of Skywalker and focuses on the new Jedi order.

The project remains in development with Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy attached to direct and Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight working on the screenplay. No release date has been set yet as of this moment.

In an interview with Empire Magazine, Ridley shared her excitement over her return in an upcoming Star Wars movie.

She reflected on her decision to reprise the role of Rey Skywalker and how she is ready to continue her journey in the galaxy far, far away.

"I suppose I feel more like I’m owning it. I suppose I owned it the first time. Basically, I’m an adult now," Ridley explained.

"I certainly did not feel like an adult at the time. Obviously, personally, things have changed, and professionally, I’ve had lots of other experiences, and so I definitely feel like it’s a different thing this time."

Ridley also added, "There’s just a lot of joy with me and these films. Honestly, if I wasn’t excited, I wouldn’t have done it. It feels like a great thing to be a part of."

It is great to hear that Ridley is feeling excited over her return to the franchise and it adds up to the hype of the project since it is a sign that what they have in store for Rey Skywalker's next movie is going to be promising.

So far, the plot details remain under wraps, but one thing that we can say is that Lucasfilm is eager to make the movie happen and the people on board are also enthusiastic about how the project is currently going.
