Back in May Vanity Fair touched on the subject of the Rey/Kylo Ren relationship in The Rise of Skywalker as part of their coverage of the film. Entertainment Weekly follows along that same Episode IX plot line with an article posted today that contains the following quotes from Daisy Ridley on whether viewers will see the dynamic of that unique relationship fully fleshed out come December:
“It does not bother me, people writing theories,” Ridley said. “It’s really fun hearing them. Plus, because I know what’s sort of going to happen, I think it’ll be really interesting to see people’s reaction to [the final film]. Obviously, there’s this whole Reylo thing and some people are very passionate about it, some aren’t.”
Ridley hinted that the seemingly romantic connection isn’t left unaddressed by director J.J. Abrams in The Rise of Skywalker.
“J.J. does deal with [it],” she added. “It’s a very complex issue. People talk about toxic relationships and whatever it is. It’s no joke and I think it’s dealt with really well because it’s not skimmed over.”
The Rise of Skywalker lands in theaters December 20.
