Daisy Ridley hasn't read the script for her new Star Wars film

The 32-year-old actress is reprising her role as Rey in a new film set to follow her rebuilding the Jedi Order after defeating Emperor Palpatine in 2019's 'The Rise of Skywalker', but she is yet to read final draft.

Asked if she'd seen a copy, she told Collider: "That has not changed yet - but it is imminently about to change."

When it comes to stepping back into the character of Rey, Ridley admitted there were some challenges despite the familiarity of the role.

She explained: "So this one feels the same because I'm playing a character I’ve played before, but it's different because it's been many years.

"I would hope I'm coming back as a richer artist, but also I'm in different hands, so that's interesting and new.

"A different story. So that I think will be a discovery as we go on."

The film is being directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, and will follow 'The Rise of Skywalker', which acted as the end of the long running Skywalker Saga.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed the movie will see the beginning of a new era of the 'Star Wars' timeline, with Rey working to rebuild the Jedi Order after her grandfather Palpatine (Ian McDiarmid) and the First Order were defeated.

For Ridley, she is excited to find new ways to push herself as she would be with any other project.

She said: "I feel like every job I've done, I have challenged myself in a way, and oftentimes it's not presented until you're there, and you think, 'Oh my God.'

"For instance, Young Woman and the Sea, the scene between me and Tilda [Cobham-Hervey] as Trudy and Meg [is] really the lowest point of the movie.

"I was really nervous about doing the scene and knew it would be difficult, and then there's a stamina you have to continue to do, because you're continuing to do the scene, so you're discovering things as you go, it's all an adventure."
