A new Star Wars theory has surfaced that connects Daisy Ridley’s Rey to the events of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
Before we get into how this potential Easter Egg may tie in with Daisy Ridley’s character, some background info is in order. Towards the end of the events of Rebels, protagonist Ezra Bridger ends up finding a mural of three figures from The Clone Wars: the Father, Daughter, and Son of Mortis, a planet encompassing the full nature of the Force itself. While all three characters passed on by the end of the Clone Wars story arc, their influence was not limited to the series, as a mural with their likenesses proved to be the key toward reaching the World Between Worlds, a bizarre dimension connecting space and time.
How might this relate to Daisy Ridley’s Rey, you may ask, especially since Daisy Ridley was not involved with either show? In the scene from Rebels, the hand signals on the mural have to be changed in order to access the World Between Worlds, and in the midst of Rey’s vision, she ends up making a few of the same gestures, hinting at a connection.
You can look at the comparison to the image of Star Wars Rebels to the Last Jedi scene with Daisy Ridley’s Rey below.
This Daisy Ridley-oriented theory may not be as far-fetched as it initially seems. The Clone Wars showrunner Dave Filoni consulted with The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson for story-related purposes, so what if he was playing the long game here and setting up a pay-off for Daisy Ridley’s protagonist in The Rise of Skywalker? We only have a few months to find out.
Directed by J. J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant, Keri Russell, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Ian McDiarmid, and Billy Dee Williams. Carrie Fisher will appear as General Leia Organa through the use of previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released in theaters on December 20, 2019. Stay tuned for the latest news on Daisy Ridley and the future of the Star Wars franchise.
