Daisy Ridley is officially set to return to a galaxy far, far away as Rey Skywalker. The release window for her upcoming Star Wars return has been revealed.
Lucasfilm has kept a tight lock on any news about its upcoming Star Wars projects. While fans know Daisy Ridley will return as Rey, it’s not clear what the film will be about or even when it will be released in theaters. However, at least one of those questions seems to have been answered, with Hollywood insider Jeff Sneider recently suggesting the film will come out sometime in December 2026.
That certainly seems like a long time for a single movie to be in production. However, given the recent Hollywood strikes and how long pre-production on Star Wars films usually takes, a December 2026 release window is fairly conservative. Now, Star Wars fans just have to hope that Daisy Ridley’s return as Rey is worth the wait!
The future of Star Wars looks brighter than ever
During Star Wars Celebration, Lucasfilm made some exciting announcements for the future of the franchise. At the event, Kathleen Kennedy announced that Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Dave Filoni and James Mangold are all set to direct their own Star Wars movies. Details about the projects are still scarce, but each one is set during a different time period in the galaxy far, far away.
The announcement of these three new Star Wars movies marks an exciting time for fans of the franchise. With each movie being directed by a different filmmaker, there is sure to be a unique perspective and style brought to each project.
