"I am really, really excited to do the third thing and round it out, because ultimately, what I was signing on to was three films", Ridley stated.
Now that Hamill understands how Skywalker fits into the new franchise trilogy, he is really enjoying reviving his iconic role, which he first tackled in 1977's A New Hope, and he is particularly interested in the direction the new filmmakers, who are true fans of the sci-fi series, will steer the story in the coming installments.
The actress gave a firm "No", and a "no, no, no" when asked directly if she's sure she wouldn't be interested in picking up the lightsaber for extra space adventures, but she was a little more flexible about whether or not she'd reprise her now-iconic role when the franchise is inevitably rebooted decades from now.
Disney finds its Mulan for live-action adaptation
Disney has enrolled a Chinese on-screen character to star in the title part of its cutting edge variant of " Mulan ". Chris Bender, Jason Reed and Jake Weiner will be producing the film.
"In fact, the most important line, I think, Luke says, is, 'This is not going to go the way you think.' When I read the script, I was stunned", Hamill revealed.
Outside of Star Wars, Ridley also gave a memorable performance in Murder on the Orient Express this year and will also co-star with Tom Holland in 2019's Chaos Walking.
Of course, she may change her mind, but Ridley sounds pretty committed to her decision.
"Oh, peanut! Please show Jimmy your breakout dance move at the wrap party", she said in the clip.
For now, we'll be sad to see her go, but at least this way Ridley's fans are prepared for the ending.
The mysteries of the Star Wars universe need time to unravel, so patient, we must be.
