Star Wars 9: Daisy Ridley cried when she learned Rey's fate

Daisy Ridley cried when she was told the original plan for her character in "Star Wars: Episode IX". While it isn't a surprise that the audience score would drop after the initial hype of the sequel trilogy installment's been reduced to sober assessments from fans, it seems like The Last Jedi has officially become the most divisive film of the Star Wars franchise. "We're both big fans, one of the reasons why I think he put me in the movie was because we hit it off talking about that", Moynihan said.

It would certainly be interesting to hear what Trevorrow's pitch to Ridley was and how Rey would have finished her story arc should he have remained director.

In an interview with Huffington Post, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" director Rian Johnson revealed that Rey's parentage might still be revealed in "Star Wars: Episode 9".

She added, "Hopefully, if Rey and Poe get to have some scenes together, there will be intimacy but, for me, it doesn't have to be romantic love". Romantic relationships aren't a requirement for all films and sometimes it is more beneficial not to have one.

If the new trilogy is seeking to break the mold of the previous films, having the main female lead not be a romantic character would be a definite change of pace.

Trevorrow's script was tweaked and overhauled throughout the two years he was involved with Episode 9 - largely because of the tragic and unexpected death of Carrie Fisher, whose Leia Organa was meant to have a starring role in his film.

Daisy Ridley has spoken up about a potential romantic storyline for her character Rey and Poe (Oscar Isaac) in "Star Wars 9".

Guess everyone's got their idea of the flawless Star Wars film. So it is totally possible that Rey may follow a similar path. Rey now has to help defeat Kylo Ren and the First Order.

We learned a lot about Rey's origin, i.e. that there wasn't really one (at least in the Star Wars-y, "it is destined" sense), in The Last Jedi, but what of her fate? For all the latest on The Bachelorette: Far, Far Away edition and all your movie news, keep it tuned to CinemaBlend.
