Now Playing: Star Wars Episode 9: The Rise Of Skywalker Teaser Trailer

There were rumors that Ridley might appear in either the new trilogies from The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson or Game of Thrones showrunners D.B. Weiss and David Benioff. But that's not happening.

"They always said it was going to be a separate story," Ridley remarked about both sets of new trilogies.

The next big Star Wars movie after Rise of Skywalker is the untitled first movie in the new trilogy from Weiss and Benioff. The film is scheduled to premiere in 2022.

But would Ridley ever return to the Star Wars universe, further down the road? She didn't say one way or the other, but instead said, "It's a great universe; I've had a great time."

Also in the interview, Ridley confirmed she has no plans to ever return to social media, referencing Selena Gomez's quotes about how social media is dangerous. Asked if she has a plan for how to deal with haters online, Ridley said people think their opinions matter more than they actually do.

"It's great to have freedom of expression, but I do feel like people think opinions have so much weight," she said. "I don't think bad vibes should have the sun shone on them. I don't want to read your thing."
