What does she thing about Rey? Our quote of the day is by Ridley. Listen to her!
“Rey is so strong. She’s cool and smart and she can look after herself. Young girls can look at her and know that they can wear trousers if they want to. That they don’t have to show off their bodies.”

“So many people look up to Jennifer Lawrence playing Katniss in ‘The Hunger Games.’ For them to look up to Rey and what she represents would be fantastic. She’s a wonderful character… The reason I love her so much is she does all the fun stuff. She fights, runs and protects herself and has an incredible emotional story.”

“The thing about ‘Star Wars’ is that every single person is important. Even though Rey is a big role, everyone influences everyone. If that wasn’t so, why would so many people remember Admiral Ackbar?”
