Daisy Ridley Says Luke Doesn’t Know Rey, Plus: She Reveals Reactions to ‘The Last Jedi’ Rough Cut

Arguably the biggest news to come out of this year’s Star Wars Celebration was that incredible first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Not only did it tease the return of Luke Skywalker, but it did so in a way that was unexpected. How come Luke doesn’t think the Jedi should exist anymore? What’s going on with our beloved Luke Skywalker?

Fandango was lucky enough to chat with some of the stars of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, including Daisy Ridley, who revealed a little bit more about how Rey’s relationship with Luke is different than Luke’s relationship with, say, Yoda or Obi-Wan. And for starters, she says Luke has no idea who she is when she shows up. Does that mean he’s not her father, as so many have theorized previously?

Here’s what she told us below.

We also asked Ridley how The Last Jedi differs from The Force Awakens, and she said the key word is… “different.” The actress revealed to us that she has spoken with people who’ve seen a rough cut of the film, and they say it’s different. Not necessarily riskier or stuffed with more surprises, but just different from anything we’ve seen from Star Wars before.

“With Rian’s vision and his image,” she explained. “And also I think [J.J. Abrams] brought the old fans back and the new fans in, and he had all this stuff. And Rian had more room to kind of do his thing.”

Watch her full explanation below.
