    The Rise of Skywalker is five weeks away, in which all answers will be revealed. While The Mandalorian has stolen the attention of many Star Wars fans, the conclusion to the Skywalker saga in right around the corner. Daisy Ridley talks about the film, including four words to describe it, as well as her thoughts on doing the Dark Rey bits, and J.J. Abrams touches on his pre-production meeting with George Lucas about the nature of the Force.







    From Entertainment Weekly, Daisy offered four words to describe The Rise of Skywalker:

    The actress touched on stepping out of the light for a bit to Total Film (via Games Radar), which was very fun for her, in doing the 'Dark Rey' bits.

    Now the outlet put 'Darth Rey' in parenthesis, so this could have been them assuming and just using that moniker, so I wouldn't read too much into that part, as since it was in parenthesis, that means Ridley herself did not say that part, but for sake of reporting them accurately I have uneasily left that in their quote.



    Ridley then gets into whether the Dark Rey element will be shocking, which probably would have been a bit more shocking if it wasn't revealed in the D23 teaser clip:

    Ridley admits it was fun going dark side for a bit as a change of pace:

    Meanwhile J.J. Abrams was asked about his pre-production (I need to stress this oh-so heavily, PRE-PRODUCTION) meeting he had with George Lucas about the saga and the nature of the Force specifically. In typical Abrams fashion he said a lot without really revealing much at all, but any time the creator of Star Wars is involved, we should pay attention, and even just knowing the two had conversations about all of this is a wonderful thing to hear.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker opens five weeks from today on December 19.

    I love everything about the excerpt from J.J. Abrams - I’m so amused that George Lucas is still talking about Midi-chlorians and that J.J. Abrams talks about them somewhat dismissively. That dichotomy is so illustrative to me of the fact that Star Wars is now so much bigger than any one individual auteur.
