Even Daisy Ridley Is Confused About Leia's Force Sensitivity

Love it or loathe it, >The Last Jedi

will forever be remembered as Carrie Fisher’s last true performance in the Star Wars saga.

It was, by all accounts, a fitting conclusion to a 40-year legacy, as the franchise’s impassioned fanbase bid adieu to General Leia Organa (AKA the People’s Princess) one last time.

But if there’s one scene, in particular, that proved contentious among viewers, it’s the one in which an unconscious Leia calls upon the Force to guide her back to the Resistance fleet. In the wrong hands, this dream-like sequence would have come off as schmaltzy – even melodramatic – but there are those who take issue with Johnson’s decision to unlock Leia’s abilities. Hell, it even baffled Daisy Ridley, who said the following in a recent Q&A session with BAFTA:

Because I wasn’t so knowledgeable of the Star Wars thing, I still have questions about what it all means. Like when people talk about Jedi and stuff like that I remember having a conversation with one of our executive producers on VII, Michelle, and I said, ‘But surely Leia’s a Jedi, because she’s force sensitive and she’s challenged.’ She’s not challenged in the same ways as Luke, but like she’s doing stuff for the good and everything like that. I still don’t quite have my answer, like is she a Jedi? I dunno.
