Star Wars: Episode 7 - What We Know So Far
ReyThe Star Wars franchise doesn’t have a particularly healthy history when it comes to its female characters (you can count the notable ones in the original trilogy on one hand), but it appears that J.J. Abrams will be throwing that stupid tradition out the window for the future of the series. There are multiple incredibly talented actresses on the cast list for The Force Awakens, but seemingly leading the pack and playing a key role in the new adventure is Rey, played by newcomer Daisy Ridley. Like everything else about the production, we don’t have too many official details about who exactly Rey is or what her role in the story is, but the trailer showed us that she has one seriously cool looking speeder, and we’ve heard many rumors suggesting that she lives on a desert planet and makes a home inside a busted AT-AT walker from The Empire Strikes Back.
