The flood gates are opening. First, Lucasfilm editors say that The Last Jedi undid the Disney Trilogy. Then Ahmed Best says that the Disney Trilogy strayed from what George Lucas intended. Now Daisy Ridley speaks up, and SC Reviews comments:
“It was nice to feel really comforted that like ‘Luke Skywalker is here.’”
The Rise of Skywalker Allowed Mark Hamill to Be the Real Luke Again Says Daisy Ridley
The Rise of Skywalker is now available digitally and on Blu-ray. One of the many special features included in both versions of the movie is the lengthy making-of documentary, which contains interviews with the cast and crew, along with a ton of behind-the-scenes footage from the entire franchise. At one point in the documentary, Daisy Ridley is seen talking about acting alongside Mark Hamill again. She had this to say.
“It was probably nice for Mark to be more like the Luke of old. Which I think J.J. felt like he really wanted that. It was nice to feel – and even in the scene – to feel really comforted that like ‘Luke Skywalker is here.’”
Sorry, not sorry, Rian.
