Ridley first played Rey in the seventh episode of the Skywalker Saga, 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Rey was the primary protagonist in the sequel trilogy. She also appeared in 2017’s The Last Jedi, and 2019’s The Rise of Skywalker. The character also appears as a regular in other media like video games such as LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: Battlefront II and animated web series like Star Wars Forces of Destiny.
Rey is revealed in The Force Awakens as a Scavenger who was left on the planet Jakku as just a young child. When she discovers that she’s Force-sensitive, she finds herself in the Resistance’s battle with the First Order. After having been trained to be a Jedi under both Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa, she successfully defeats Palpatine as well as the First Order in The Rise of Skywalker and then sets out to rebuild the Jedi Order by adopting the name Rey Skywalker.
