Star Wars reboot: Daisy Ridley ‘replaced as Rey Skywalker by Keira Knightley’

Recent articles

After the events of The Rise of Skywalker, Star Wars fans were excited to find out what happened to Rey after she exposed her Palpatine bloodline. The heroine, who was played by Ridley, announced that she was taking the Skywalker surname in honor of her mentors, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher). YouTuber Mike Zeroh has now suggested that Ridley won’t be returning to the franchise in an upcoming Disney Plus TV series that focuses on Rey’s next story.

However, the information Zeroh revealed should be taken with a grain of salt, as not every bit of Star Wars information he has provided is 100 percent correct.

That said, he recently delved into the future of the series, which supposedly includes a reboot of the series after TROS.

He said the next part of Rey’s story will be told in an animated TV show that will use advanced CGI, similar to the one seen in Star Wars video games The Old Republic and Battlefront 2, reviewing some aspects of TROS , including why she took the Skywalker name.

However, Zeroh said that Ridley will not be reprising her role as voice or likeness for Rey and will instead be replaced by Knightley for the animated outing.

Knightley is best known for playing Elizabeth Swann in Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise alongside Johnny Depp.

She also had a small role on Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace as Padme’s (Natalie Portman) bait.

Zeroh said Rey Skywalker’s “concept” will be drastically changed in this series, rewriting “many aspects” of her character.

He said in a video released earlier this month, “Daisy will be replaced as Rey Skywalker in the planned sequel, in which Lucasfilm chose Keira Knightley to borrow her voiceover and facial scans to portray Rey’s character in animated form. .

Daisy doesn’t want anything to do with Star Wars anymore, since she had problems with it herself [Lucasfilm president] Kathleen Kennedy. “

It’s important to note that last year Ridley commented on her possible return to the Star Wars universe.

Ridley said to Empire, “I mean, never say never. I am always open to a revisit. But the great thing is that it is this beautiful, huge universe with all these stories yet to be told. I think there are a lot of cool things to be made before you go there again. “

Zeroh went on to say that Knightley had been “solicited” by Disney’s Chief Executive Officer Bob Chapek.

He added that Star Wars and The Mandalorian writer Jon Favreau want to give a “legitimate reason” for Rey giving himself the Skywalker name.

The Star Wars leaker previously reported on the content of this long-rumored Rey Skywalker Disney Plus TV series.

Last month, Zeroh revealed in a video how the show would follow Rey and her child she had with Kylo Ren / Ben Solo (Adam Driver).

He said Rey’s son – Cade Skywalker – would be played by Garrett Hedlund from Tron: Legacy fame.

Cade was originally a character in the Star Wars Extended Universe before being made non-canon by Disney in 2013.

The YouTuber added that Kylo Ren didn’t die in The Rise of Skywalker, but instead had his soul drenched in Rey’s.

This strange turn of events will presumably continue allowing Rey to conceive and continue the Skywalker bloodline.

Meanwhile, Zeroh has also claimed there will be another series coming to Disney Plus in the future starring Brie Larson.

The Captain Marvel star would play a brand-new character, Maeve, who “has more power than Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker put together.”

The Star Wars movies are now available on Disney Plus.
