We’d be lying if we said we were entirely happy with Ryan Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The film will forever be perceived as hugely divisive and that fact is not lost on franchise star Daisy Ridley.
In an interview with USA Today the actress discussed her perception of the backlash towards the movie and had some wise words to say.
“I wasn’t surprised, no. It’s just a different thing,” said Ridley. “Everyone’s going to have an opinion now anyway on the internet, but I also think it’s fair. If people hold something incredibly dear and think they know how it should be and it’s not like that, it’s fair for people to think they were done wrong.
It doesn’t mean they were – ultimately, Rian’s a filmmaker and one person can’t dictate how a film is supposed to be – but freedom of expression, sure.”
