Daisy Ridley loves how much Rey has inspired a new generation of girls
More Daisy Ridley in our lives is always a good thing, and lucky for us she joined Star Wars Celebration in Orlando to finally give fans a few answers to their burning The Last Jedi questions — sorta. At The Last Jedi panel, Daisy sat down alongside Director Rian Johnson and Lucasfilm CEO Kathleen Kennedy to discuss just how much everyone loves Rey — especially little girls. Hearing stuff like that makes our heart SO FULL.
Daisy couldn’t actually give us much info about the upcoming film but when moderator Josh Gad brought up just how much girls love Rey the discussion turned to the awesome female characters of Star Wars.
And isn’t Rey just the coolest?!
Daisy is pretty excited about seeing women and girls dressed like Rey:
While Daisy gave most of the credit to everyone else, Rian Johnson took a second to praise Daisy for her contribution to Rey:
Daisy, you’re pretty awesome and we love you AND Rey. Can’t wait to see what happens next with Rey when The Last Jedi comes out on December 15!
