The Surprising Reason Daisy Ridley Was Disappointed by ‘The Last Jedi’
Ridley discussed Rey’s relationship to Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi. She explained “J. J. [Abrams] might disagree, but Rey was looking for a parent figure and Luke just wasn’t that for her and that’s what I always found so upsetting about The Last Jedi and why I felt like it was so emotional doing it ’cause like all she wants is a family.”
Ridley briefly discussed fan disappointment in the film in an interview from July 1, 2019. When asked if the backlash surprised her, she told USA Today “I wasn’t surprised, no. It’s just a different thing. Everyone’s going to have an opinion now anyway on the internet, but I also think it’s fair.”
She elaborated “If people hold something incredibly dear and think they know how it should be and it’s not like that, it’s fair for people to think they were done wrong. It doesn’t mean they were – ultimately, [The Last Jedi’s director, Rian Johnson is] a filmmaker and one person can’t dictate how a film is supposed to be – but freedom of expression, sure.”
