    Seriously though. Does this mean Daisy has confirmed Dark Side Rey as more than a vision?

    Daisy Ridley: "[If I had to choose a line from a past Star Wars film that would be key to Rey's story going forward, it would be...] Do you know what's weird? I'm just getting that Maz line: 'The belonging you seek is not behind you...it is ahead.' That one came to my mind." "I feel amazingly spoiled that the first thing I did was such a great character. It's not that she's a 'strong female character'. But you can understand where she's coming from. You're going through the journey with her. It also feels right to end here, because there's no way you can carry on after this film. It's an epic ending to the saga." "This is the end of the Skywalker saga. So the film will come out, and we'll all go our separate ways. I mean, for now, it really is the end of the saga. But who knows? (smiles) Because nothing really ends." (Total Film magazine December 2019)

    “The belonging you seek is not behind you...it is ahead.” Which is this:

    I transcribed the key parts of the video from last month:

    Daisy Ridley: "Everything is being questioned. Everything is being explored. So [Rey]'s still searching, but she's more at home than she was." "She is still figuring it out. I think as people do like you could be so settled, you could be married, and [have] kids, and [have] the house and everything and you're still like questioning your place in the world and I think her and all the other characters are still doing that." (October 17, 2019)

    Daisy Ridley: "At the time I genuinely just thought this is an awesome costume in white. I'm sure the costume designer Michael [Kaplan] had some other thought. Maybe purity. Wholesomeness. Hope. Love." "Well J. J. [Abrams] did say that in the original [1977 Star Wars] - I think it's after the trash compactor [scene] - and Leia literally goes (gestures) and her costume is brilliantly clean that was like one of the things he wanted do." "Well we tried a couple of different ones and the white was just everyone just sort of [thought] it looked amazing." "My dresser was like, 'Oh my god, keeping this clean is gonna be a nightmare.' But it worked pretty well." (October 17, 2019)

    Daisy Ridley: "It does not bother me - people writing theories. It's really fun hearing them. Plus because either - I know what's going on...or I knew what was sort of going to happen - because obviously there's this whole Reylo thing and some people are very passionate about it, some aren't - it's a very complex issue - like the whole Reylo thing people talk about toxic relationships and whatever it is - it's like (gestures) no joke and I think it's dealt with really well because it's not skimmed over like it's approached. It will be really interesting to see people's reaction to it." (October 17, 2019)

    Daisy Ridley: "The Leia stuff is fantastic, like really fantastic, because she's also - the footage is brilliant. It's strange because all of the stuff that Carrie [Fisher] did fits eerily into the story of [Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker]. Honestly I think people watching it are gonna think that she was there and that we did it in situ[ation] for that particular...it's the strangest thing. It'll be a very emotional but also very sort of fulfilling ending for Leia." (October 17, 2019)

    J. J. Abrams: “The idea [from the beginning] was to tell a tale of a young woman who was innately powerful, innately moral, innately good, but also struggling with her place in the world and forced to fend for herself in every way. As exciting as it was to get to play in the Star Wars universe, it was this young woman that I felt oddly compelled to get to know. Even at the very first meeting with Kathleen Kennedy, the idea came up about having a female at the center of it. There was an inherent sense of ‘We’ve seen the story before of the young hero,’ but we’d never seen it through the eyes of a woman like this, and that, to me, was the most exciting thing.” “Yeah, [Rey feels so preternaturally gifted it’s] spooky, right? (smiles) It’s a fair point. It’s not an accident.” (November 21, 2019)

    J. J. Abrams: “The scavenger [Rey] who is desperate and haggling for portions and trying to survive [in Star Wars: The Force Awakens] — those special skills and that special experience ends up being something that is essential to saving the galaxy.” “[I see Rey and Kylo Ren as] two sides of the same coin, even when they’re not together they still haunt each other in a way — they know they are each other’s unresolved business.” (November 19, 2019)

    Siblings are two sides of the same coin. :)

    You know, the more of these cast interviews I read, the less I believe the "leaks" floating around. I don't know, what Daisy and crew are saying doesn't seem to jibe with them. I think there's maybe some story beats that are correct in the leaks, but a lot of the recent supposed leaks come off as some Mike Zeroh on crack fanfic. I guess we'll see what's true soon!

    The leaks are pretty much the only plausible thing I've seen in terms of speculation. The siblings stuff is just wish fulfillment from some fans. There's very little logic at this point supporting it.
