Daisy Ridley reckons the ending for Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker won’t be as controversial as the Game Of Thrones finale.

The new film represents the final outing in the current trilogy, while also wrapping up the entire Skywalker saga which begins with prequel Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.

Unsurprisingly, there’s a lot of pressure to deliver a suitable ending on many fronts – something which proved tricky when it came to HBO’s Game Of Thrones earlier this year.

Speaking to MTV during Disney’s D23 convention, Daisy, who is a Game Of Thrones fan, stated the ending to Rise Of Skywalker wouldn’t be quite so divisive as the HBO fantasy show.

‘I couldn’t tell you what I’ve done for the past month, like six weeks… except watch Game Of Thrones,’ Daisy said.

‘I think this ending will be less controversial.’

In the latest trailer for Rise Of Skywalker, Daisy’s character Rey is seen equipped with a Sith lightsaber – teasing a potential turn to the dark side.

‘It honestly felt really cool,’ Daisy said about the potential turn. ‘There were obviously conversations about how it looked, like genuinely cool. And that like, oh, people will wanna be that version of Rey.

‘However that may last, however long it lasts, wherever she ends up. But it felt really good.’

Despite the controversy surrounding Game Of Thrones final season, the show has picked up a whopping 32 nominations at this year’s Emmys.
