Rose said the female heroine was a great role model for her daughter. She requested BuzzFeed Life not use her daughter’s name for privacy reasons.
“Here was a young girl learning to use the Force like a Jedi, and flying the Millennium Falcon, and shooting a blaster,” she said. “It was amazing, and I was happy she loved Rey, and that she could imagine herself as the hero of the story.”
“Her big brother went on a tirade asking how they could leave Rey out of sets because it made it impossible to act out scenes from the movie,” Rose said. “But when she got that toy, she was just so excited, and that put the plan in motion.”
“She’s always loved Star Wars, and now she gets to be a Jedi just like her big brother,” Rose said.
