Daisy Ridley's Cheeky Dark Rey Hint Will Start A Huge Star Wars Fan Debate

She sort of explained it and we still wouldn't believe it.

The internet was given lots to talk about after Disney dropped a new Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker clip during its 2019 D23 event. While we here at GOAT were all over the clip’s Darth C-3PO tease, all everyone else wanted to talk about was Daisy Ridley doing her best Darth Rey impression.

Is she going to turn to the Dark Side because of Palpatine’s mind shenanigans? Was it all just a Dagobah-esque vision? Or perhaps that wasn’t Rey but a mere clone?

Sorry to break it to you, Rey, but you’re not actually you. Maybe.

Well if you take Daisy Ridley’s own word for it, what you saw in the Rise of Skywalker clip was legit and there’s no bells or whistles about it.

Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, Daisy was asked about the Darth Rey moment and her reply was quite interesting:

“I mean, the evidence is on the screen. Take that evidence as you will.

“But there’s no smoke without fire.”

Hmmm, how intriguing.

It’s not quite a yes but it’s not a no either so perhaps Darth Rey may actually be real, though it remains to be seen how well Rise of Skywalker pulls this off at this late stage of the game.

Of course, there’s always the possibility that Daisy is just throwing up false leads to protect any spoilers from leaking out from Disney HQ. Sure there’s no smoke without fire but you also need wood to make it and that stuff obscures the view pretty well.

But she wouldn’t do that… would she?

Damn it.

Regardless of whether there’s truth in Daisy’s cheeky tease, it’s sure to ignite a debate among the Star Wars fandom over whether Darth Rey is legit (or not) and whether it’s a sign that the film will be a satisfying conclusion like Breaking Bad or an epic flop like Game of Thrones.

Anyway, take all this with a mountain of salt for now since there’s no way in hell Disney will let the cat out of the bag this early. We’ll just have to wait and see if Daisy was actually telling the truth when Rise of Skywalker drops in December.

Timothée Chalamet With A British Accent And A Long-Haired Robert Pattinson Is Your New Thirst Trap

Cedric Diggory really glowed up.

Let’s put all our cards on the table right off the bat: Netflix’s new film, The King, is less of a historical epic about King Henry V and more of a dangerous thirst trap because it contains a double whammy of Timothée Chalamet and Robert Pattinson.

Let’s focus on Timothée first, who hacked off his trademark locks for a somewhat questionable bowl cut that King Henry V was known for having. But whatever he may be lacking in the hair department, he more than makes up for it with his deep-voiced British accent.

It’s the kind that’ll send shivers down your spine. You know the sort.

But whatever hair Timothée lost for the part, Robert appears to have gained because the ridiculously talented actor playing a dashing French knight who is rocking some seriously luscious long locks.

Let me repeat that: Robert Pattinson is playing a French knight and has got long hair like a shampoo model.

Talk about a huge glow up from Cedric Diggory.

Netflix definitely knew what they were doing with The King by bringing in both Timothée Chalamet and Robert Pattinson because that’s guaranteed to draw attention.

But The King has more going for it than just being a thirst trap masquerading as a historical epic. It’s got famous faces like Lily-Rose Depp and Sean Harris, as well as talented Aussie talent like Ben Mendelsohn and Joel Edgerton, who co-wrote the film.

Throw in Aussie director David Michôd (who made Animal Kingdom and The Rover) into the mix and you’ve got the pieces for a surprisingly stacked movie.

As for when The King will make its way to your TV screens for an evening of historical intrigue and excessive frothing over Timothée and Robert, it’s going to get a limited release in cinemas on October 11 before hitting Netflix on November 1.

There's A Jesse Pinkman Scene You Need To See As Prep For The Breaking Bad Movie

Mr. White isn't the only one with a plan.

Netflix pulled a fast one on everyone by not only revealing that a Walter White-less Breaking Bad film – titled El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie – starring Aaron Paul as Jesse Pinkman was shot in secret, but we won’t have to wait long before it’s on our screens as it’s scheduled to drop on October 11.

It’s a perfect amount of time as it gives everyone enough time to re-watch the all 63 episodes of the original series as a refresher, as well as Better Call Saul because it’s arguably the better show and deserves more attention.

But if you’re a little pressed for time and can’t binge everything, Aaron Paul has revealed on Twitter the scene everyone must watch as prep before El Camino comes out.

For those who are unaware, the scene takes place midway through season three after Hank beats up poor Jesse and puts him in the hospital. When Walter White visits his recovering partner, Jesse launches into a gutwrenching monologue about how everything he’s cared about is gone, ruined and/or turned to sh*t ever since they met.

It’s one of Aaron’s finest scenes as Jesse and ranks up there as one of Breaking Bad‘s top moments, which you can rewatch here.

Based on Aaron’s hint at the scene’s importance and the dialogue spoken in the sequence, it appears that El Camino will be a Jesse Pinkman redemption film. Perhaps it’ll revolve around Jesse trying to fix everything with all the people he wronged when he was cooking meth with Walt.

Eagle-eyed fans spotted the cast and crew filming in Albuquerque, which suggests that some of the film could be taking place at Jesse’s childhood home as well as some flashbacks to the events of Breaking Bad.

There’s not long to wait before we see what happens to Jesse after he escaped the neo-Nazi compound in an El Camino (hence the title, geddit?) in the Breaking Bad finale, but here’s hoping he has something of a happy ending or at least finds some peace. He’s been through so much and deserves some sunshine in his life.
