Daisy Ridley's Star Wars: New Jedi Order salary has been reported. Ridley reprised Rey Skywalker in 2017's The Last Jedi and 2019's The Rise of Skywalker.
Her character will appear in New Jedi Order 15 years after Episode IX. Star Wars: New Jedi Order was discussed on The Hot Mic.
The film reportedly earned Ridley $12.5 million. Ridley's Star Wars: The Force Awakens salary of $200,000–300,000 would be greatly increased.
Ridley's salary is hard to compare because not all projects report actor pay rates, even for Star Wars movies. Harrison Ford's Han Solo return earned him over $10 million.
While Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher's legacy character returns earned them in the low seven figures. Rey earns like other Star Wars leads.
This salary exceeds many of the highest-paid female actors of 2022, who are not inflation-adjusted. Ridley's salary is only matched by Margot Robbie's $12.5 million for Barbie, which she executive produced.
Compare Ridley's salary to 2022's top female actors. Many of those actors won Oscars before 2022, increasing their pay.
The reported salary of Ridley suggests that producers believe Star Wars: New Jedi Order will be a hit despite the divisive Rise of Skywalker ending.
This reported salary does not indicate if Ridley will receive a percentage of the movie's profits, so she may pay more upfront for fewer points later.
