Daisy Ridley expressed her interest in reuniting with former co-star John Boyega in her upcoming Star Wars movie.

Last year, Lucasfilm officially announced that Ridley is set to reprise her iconic role of Rey Skywalker in a new Star Wars movie that will take place years after the events of The Rise of Skywalker.

So far, the project has not moved beyond development, but fans are looking forward to hearing more details about the film and which other sequel trilogy cast members might also return in the new installment.

During a red carpet interview promoting her new film Young Woman and the Sea, Ridley was asked whether her co-star from the sequel trilogy, John Boyega, will be returning in her new Star Wars movie.

As expected, she didn't confirm any potential reunion, but she expressed her hope for Boyega to join her in the project.

"Absolutely, of course. It feels like we should, yeah," the actress said.

So far, Lucasfilm has not announced any additional casting yet for Ridley's new Star Wars movie.

If Boyega ends up joining the movie, a lot of fans would definitely be happy since he was an important character in the sequel trilogy and he has a very close friendship with Rey as depicted throughout the three films.

However, the actor has also stated in the past that he is done with the Star Wars franchise and there is the likelihood that he won't be making any appearance in the new movie.

Since the project is still in development, a lot of things can still happen and Lucasfilm could attempt to woo Boyega back if they really want Finn to be a pivotal character in the movie. For now, let's wait and see if it does happen.
