As far as Daisy Ridley is concerned, three “Star Wars” films are plenty.
The actress confirmed 2019’s “Star Wars: Episode IX” will likely be her last on-screen foray into the beloved franchise.
“I am really, really excited to do the third thing and round it out, because ultimately, what I was signing on to was three films,” she told Rolling Stone. “So in my head, it’s three films. I think it will feel like the right time to round it out.”
Generally speak, most “Star Wars” movies operate in trilogies. The plots of “Episode IV”, “V” and “VI” closely followed one another, as did “Episode I” through “Episode III”.
That being said, Ridley is not completely closing the door on an eventual return to the franchise. After all, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford all made comebacks.
“Who knows? I honestly feel like the world may end in the next 30 years, so, if in 30 years we are not living underground in a series of interconnected cells … then sure,” said Ridley. “Maybe.”
In the meantime, Ridley is gearing up for the highly-anticipated theatrical release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” on Dec. 15.
