Daisy Ridley will soon be back as Rey in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and fans can finally see how Luke Skywalker intends to train his new young ward. However, the "Murder on the Orient Express" actress may have revealed that things will not be going smoothly between the girl from Jakku and Mark Hamill's Jedi Master. Is it possible that Rey and Luke will not see eye to eye in "Episode VIII"? Will Ridley's Padawan struggle under her fierce training with Luke?

In "Star Wars: The Force Awakens", Rey finally set out to find Luke Skywalker, who has been hiding out in the planet Ahch-To. However, the film ended before the two could even exchange words. There is little doubt that Rey and Luke will be dealing with each other in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi". However, Daisy Ridley has teased that Luke's training might be too tough on his new Padawan. Can Rey survive her training with the grumpy old Jedi in "Episode VIII"?

Daisy Ridley recently spoke to The Star Wars Show (via YouTube) during the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, where she discussed the new film. The "Murder on the Orient Express" star reacted to the host's comment on how powerful Rey was becoming in the "Episode VIII" trailer, saying that she "didn't take that from there." Ridley commented that Rey was actually "a bit overwhelmed" in the teaser. "There's definitely a more ominous tone there," the actress commented, as per ComicBook. Could this mean that Rey and Luke Skywalker will not get along in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi"?

There is little doubt that Jedi training isn't easy. After all, Luke Skywalker struggled to control the Force when he was being trained by Yoda in Dagobah in "The Empire Strikes Back". It is possible that Rey will need to undergo the same difficulties in "Episode VIII". Find out if Daisy Ridley can make things work with Mark Hamill in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", which premieres on December 15.
