The film stars Daisy Ridley and Joe Jonas, it’s set on a distant planet where everyone can hear each other’s thoughts.

Chaos Walking” releases in theaters, March 01, 2019.


We found a list of what we’re calling “The 10 Possibly Unknown Facts About Daisy Ridley”. You can check it out below!

10. At the time she was cast as Rey, Daisy was considered to be entirely unknown.

Daisy has starred in a few productions over in England but nothing so major that she would be a worldwide figure of renown. That changed quickly however when Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out. Soon enough Rey was a household name as the movie was pushed nearly everywhere it could be.

9. She’s been trained as a dancer as well.

This could have been a great bit of help in Daisy‘s training since she had to undergo a lot to become Rey and to make sure that she was convincing as not only a character but the scavenger and fighter that she had to be in order to survive.

8. When Prince William and Prince Harry visited the Star Wars set she was assigned to show them around.

It could have just as easily been John Boyega or someone else that was selected to show them around, but there had to be a reason why Daisy was tasked with doing so. As much as Boyega means to the films Daisy is after all one of the main stars that drive the whole story.

7. Daisy cried the first time she saw The Force Awakens.

You can imagine Daisy was crying because she was happy and that she’d done something that would help to continue a story that has been in existence since the late 70s, but there’s also a good chance that she was crying because the experience was just so overwhelming as well.

6. Before becoming a big star she was a bartender in London.

To be honest, Daisy barely looks old enough to even be in a pub, but being born in 92 she’s easily old enough and no doubt was considered skilled enough to put behind the bar. One thing she’s definitely got that worked in her favor is that she’s a very attractive woman, and like it or not, sexist or not, female bartenders do tend to pull in a lot more business if they’re good at what they do and enjoy the job, or at least look like they do.

5. She tried being vegan for a while but it didn’t pan out.

After trying it for a little while Daisy decided that it was not quite for her since she still enjoys a few things that come from animals. She went back to eating fish and she does enjoy having honey in her tea, so being vegan is not her thing really.

4. Despite being a good singer Daisy happens to think it’s one of her worst qualities.

Isn’t that usually how it happens? People try to tell you that you’re good at something and whether you are or not your opinion is usually that you’re not since you happen to know yourself better than that, you hope.

3. According to the choreography team Daisy managed to master lightsaber skills that normally take a few days in less than a couple of hours.

It only took Daisy about 90 minutes to pick up routines and techniques that typically take about two to three days for a lot of people to become proficient in. That’s either a lot of dedication or some serious skill.

2. Daisy was at a play with a friend when she found out that she got the part for Star Wars.

Imagine having to sit through a whole play and not tell your friend until the very end. Daisy received an email and a phone message from J.J. Abrams and had to keep it in for the duration of the play she was at.

1. Daisy has fully enjoyed her time with Star Wars at this point.

Daisy really embraced the character of Rey and has managed to enjoy everything about the experience so far. It’s another job no doubt, but it’s one that she and many others will remember for many years to come.

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.

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 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.
