After being asked about her new role, Ridley talked a lot about Rey finally meeting Luke Skywalker.
“I can tell you some things,” Ridley said. “We go deeper into Rey’s story and what is very apparent from where we left off in The Force Awakens...is Rey has a certain expectation in what she might get from Luke and what that might entail and as people know, it’s difficult when you meet your heroes because it’s not quite what you expect.”
“Luke’s first words,” are what Ridley is most excited about for The Last Jedi. With that, Gad introduces BB-8 to the stage. Gad jokes back and forth with BB-8 before the droid leaves the stage.
