Daisy Ridley had effectively ended her Star Wars run with The Rise of Skywalker back in 2019, but even though a cap has been put on the sequel trilogy, the ending pretty much feels like there’s more in store for Rey Skywalker.
During an interview with Grazia, Ridley has confirmed that she had recently met with Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, and the news has gotten some fans really curious about what they could have been talking about.
Ridley confirmed when she was asked about keeping in touch with her Star Wars co-workers, “I went for breakfast with Kathy Kennedy the other day which was so nice.”
While this could have been nothing, one franchise lead actress doesn’t just have a meeting with the president of Star Wars to catch up on their careers. Fans were already hoping that we would get to see the cast of the Sequel Trilogy come back, and this could very well be the start of negotiations for all we know. Twitter is already being filled with speculation posts from fans:
Daisy Ridley had breakfast with the boss woman herself, Kathleen “the Savior” Kennedy….. very interesting. Very interesting indeed. pic.twitter.com/e3DbuPvvbb

While The Rise of Skywalker is being touted as the end of a franchise, a lot of elements do signal a new beginning for Star Wars. Rey just got her Skywalker mantle, why would Lucasfilm give her a brand new lightsaber and not have her use that thing at all?
Though Star Wars has had a good run in television recently, I’m still looking forward for its return in cinema. And while visits to old places and characters like The Mandalorian are nice, I prefer the stories that delve more on character and not just the consistency of the lore.
We don’t know if Ridley will ever come back for Star Wars, but The Book of Boba Fett does debut on Disney+ this Dec. 29.
