There is a rumor going around about a possible final battle between Rey and Kylo Ren in Star Wars: Episode IX, you can read about it below.

While Disney hasn’t released any plot details on next year’s Star Wars: Episode IX thus far, it seems likely that it will contain at least one climactic lightsaber duel. And given the major Force-endowed players still left in these latest films, it’s a safe bet that Rey and Kylo Ren will be the pair crossing lightsabers at the grand finale. But, while this concluding showdown between the two young warriors is almost a given, a recent rumor might have revealed the setting where such a clash will take place.

Star Wars Episode IX: A Rumored Final Battle Between Rey and Kylo

As the picture above shows: An area being prepared for one of the final scenes in the film’s third act, which has been described as an invasion sequence.


Star Wars: Episode IX is filming this month (August) at London’s Pinewood Studios. J.J. Abrams returned to direct the final installment of the Skywalker saga. Abrams co-wrote the screenplay with Chris Terrio. Daisy Ridley is returning and reprises her role as Rey for the film.

Other cast members will include  Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, and Billie Lourd. Joining the cast of Episode IX are Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant, who will be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian.

The role of Leia Organa will once again be played by Carrie Fisher, using previously unreleased footage shot for Star Wars: The Force Awakens.


 


Michelle Adelman’s novel “Piece of Mind” is being adapted by Ryan Knighton for Paramount and Bad Robot, a project which Daisy Ridley might be circling.

The Novel Synopsis

The W.W. Norton novel follows 27-year old Lucy, who sustained a traumatic brain injury when she was 3. When Lucy’s main caregiver, her father, dies suddenly, she’s forced to move in with her college-age younger brother in his cramped studio apartment in New York City. While Lucy knows everything about coffee, comic books, and Gus, the polar bear at the Central Park Zoo, she possesses a rare gift for drawing. However, she has trouble relating to people and cannot hold down a job. During her summer with her brother, Lucy learns to discover that she has more strengths than she herself knows.

Ridley recently starred in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Peter Rabbit, and Ophelia, the feature re-telling of Hamlet that premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Daisy Ridley is repped by CAA.

Daisy Ridley in Star Wars Insider's April Issue


Chaos Walking, Doug Liman’s big-budget adaptation of the best-selling YA novel of the same name by Patrick Ness, is the latest big-budget movie to undergo significant re-shoots, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. 

Lionsgate may be forced to push back the movie’s release date, which is currently slated for March 1, 2019, because of complicated scheduling issues with star Daisy Ridley.

Spending by Lionsgate for the film is between $90 million and $100 million, for an ambitious sci-fi thriller that the studio hopes will launch a franchise that can stand out amid superhero movies, remakes and sequel tent-poles.

Ridley will be at work on Star Wars: Episode IX, which will probably take up the summer months. This puts the re-shoots, which will reportedly take two to three weeks to film, off to being worked on in December 2018, or possibly even January 2019. Regardless, it would be a tight turnaround to make the current release date and insiders are planning, at this stage, on the opening date to shift. Lionsgate had no comment.

Film Synopsis:

Chaos Walking is set on a colony planet where almost all women have been killed by a virus and all living creatures hear one another’s thoughts in a stream of images, words and sounds called Noise. The cacophony drives many mad until a young man (Holland) makes a silent discovery: There is a girl (Ridley) who may be the key to unlocking the New World’s many-layered secrets.


Daisy is in the April issue of Empire UK. Here is the interview for the magazine.

How Much Is A Pint Of Milk? - Daisy Ridley Do you have a nickname?
“Yes my favorite one is Baby Dazzle. I’m called Daz, and Dazma, and on the first Star Wars, it became Baby Dazzle, because I was the baby.”
 
What character did you play in your first school play?
“I played Demetrius in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Gender-swapping as my first role! Pushing boundaries. I was literally ten, and it was mainly girls, and I actually remember part of the song.  I think we did some of Shakespeare’s words.”
Where is the strangest place you’ve ever thrown up?
“On top of Skellig Michael, when we were filming Star Wars: The Force Awakens. I felt really funny all morning but I kept saying “No no, I’m fine.” And then I wasn’t fine. We had these two wonderful paramedics, and they had this orange tent so I was in there just throwing up. But I felt so much better afterwards.”
Have you ever written fan mail?
“I wrote emails and letters to every casting director because I was a fan of the work they’d cast. I was that person! When they were casting Atonement there was a casting call, but I wrote a letter too, like, “Please choose me…” Luckily, they chose Saoirse Ronan.”
When we you most starstruck?
“When I went to a pre-Globes party a few years ago. I found myself talking to Danny DeVito and he called over to Morgan Freeman, and I was like, “This is the most surreal thing ever.” [Then] at the premiere of The Last Jedi, Danny came over to say  hi, and I was like, “We are pals! This is fantastic.”
How much is a pint of milk?
I couldn’t tell you anymore. But it’s about £1.70 for a carton of almond milk. It’s incredibly expensive. Then again, it probably lasts longer. God, I sound like such a knob, don’t I?
What scares you?
“Being buried alive. I watched a special episode of CSI that Quentin Tarantino did [‘Grave Danger‘], and honestly, I had nightmares for months. Heinous, heinous. My absolute worst thing.”
Do you have a signature dish?
I sort of became vegan last year and haven’t done much cooking because I’ve only been home for about two weeks in that time. Before, I did quite a good fish laksa. Now I’m essentially just trying to be inventive with tofu.”
What posters did you have up on your wall as a kid?
“I did have posters and my sisters did. My sister had Usher and, what was that band, A3? [She means A1] I was so jealous. Now I have Rocky Horror. I’m a child again, with grown-up tastes.”
What is your favorite animal?
“Pigs have a new place in my heart. There was a scene in Ophelia with some pigs in the garden, and as I was going past, one literally dive-bombed into the mud. It was one of the best things I’ve ever seen.”
What one thing do you do better than anyone else you know?
“When I’m working out – because I’m already training for the next film, possibly – I’m quite good at starting [a workout], and then starting quite an intense conversation and forgetting what I’m doing, and then the other person forgets what they told me I had to do. So, distraction?”
