Daisy Ridley recently weighed in on her return to the Star Wars franchise, saying the new film has a “really cool” story. It was reported back in April that Ridley is reprising her role as Rey in a new film, which is directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (Ms. Marvel) film from a script by Steven Knight (Peaky Blinders). Ridley spoke with Collider for a new interview and touched on the film, noting she only knows the storyline of one film thus far. You can see highlights below:

On appearing at Star Wars Celebration for the announcement: “I was sh**ting myself before I went on stage, because no one knew I was going to that. No one knew I was going to Celebration, bar like [Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy] and there were a couple of people. I was so nervous. Oh my god. It was such a wonderful reception. I’m very excited. The story is really cool.“

On if the film will kick off a new trilogy: “I know the storyline for one film. That’s not to say that that’s all it is, but that’s what I was told about. And I imagine it will be the next film, I think. I mean, again, I don’t know, post strikes and everything, how quickly everything will start up again. But yes, so far, I know the story of one film and I think people will be very excited.”
