Some of the most exciting things going for Star Wars: The Force Awakens are all the new characters being introduced. Just as it did all those decades ago, The Force Awakens looks to build a new galaxy of dynamic characters who are just full of mysteries that can be fleshed out over multiple movies. One of those is the character of Daisy Ridley, Rey.
Rey is one of the just few characters that we know little to nothing about. The things we do know are that she lives on Jakku, she’s a local scavenger and she carries a (suspicious looking) staff. Everything we’ve seen from images and trailers are pretty much just guesses and speculation because nothing has been said/confirmed from anyone and everything revolving around her is just so damn tightly locked. But that’s kind of the beauty about it, right? When was the last time we were going to go into such a monstrous film knowing close to nothing about the lead character? I can remember a single time. Yeah sure, for one odd reason they keep releasing TV spots up the ass, but have they really revealed anything? You’re going to have to tell me, the last thing I watched anything The Force Awakens was its official trailer.
That leads to one of the most recent videos released for the galaxy’s most anticipated film. The films first true featurette has been released, which focuses on Ridley’s Rey. I haven’t watched it and will stand by that, but if you’re looking to know a bit more about the character who is bound to become all of our Star Wars crush, I’m guessing this is the video to watch:
How was it? Did it give anything away? Or was it just another cool look into the film from behind-the-scenes? Even if it is nothing, it’s taking every ounce of me to not watch it. It’s killing me to not watch all the goodies being released, but I know that not doing so will make the night I watch it that much sweeter.
J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits in a galaxy near you on December 18th, 2015.
