New Jedi Order Movie Rumor Would Only Continue Star Wars' Rey Skywalker Failure

If Rey Skywalker isn’t the lead of Star Wars’ New Jedi Order movie, the franchise would be failing her character. Daisy Ridley’s Rey was first introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as a lonely scavenger on the planet Jakku. Over the course of the sequel trilogy, Rey discovered her connection with the Force, fought the First Order, and even defeated Emperor Palpatine once and for all. She did all that while trying to figure out her place in the galaxy, seeking to learn more about her parents. While most of Rey’s narrative mysteries were solved (though not in the way many might have hoped), she still deserves a story that is wholly her own.
