Star Wars: The Last Jedi's Daisy Ridley Talks About Rey's Flaws

06 December 2017

The Last Jedi director confirmed to Mashable that his upcoming trilogy of Star Wars films will not be based on the beloved game series Knights of the Old Republic.

What do Star Wars fans want from Rian Johnson? "I was actually having this discussion with my dad, because I was like, you know, people go to the hairdresser to get their hair done, people go to the gym to get their bodies done".

Special guests at the three-day festival will include The Emerald Garrison, the country's biggest Star Wars costuming club, and the team behind Ireland's dedicated Star Wars podcast, Blabba the Hutt.

"It's sad, it's sad", said Ridley "It's not sad in the sad sense, it's sad when someone's grappling with their identity and they're asking questions and I think you feel more in this one alone Rey has been".

"I don't think she has a flaw".

The Last Jedi isn't going to give audiences any definite answer to Poe's sexuality.

After all, that Old Republic content was swept aside when Star Wars canon was revised in 2014; so far as the official story is concerned, we've never visited that part of the past. Like we said, we're still probably many years away from the new trilogy being made a reality, so fans will just have to remain patient about it.

Or maybe Poe makes out with Finn and he just doesn't want to spoil it. "It's also the Flash Gordon".
