Everything Daisy Ridley Knows About Star Wars: Episode VIII

Daisy Ridley has some bad news for you, Star Wars fans. Episode VIII is not just two hours of her and Mark Hamill staring at each other. It’s a damn travesty, we know. We can feel your disappointment all the way over here.

Don’t be too bummed, though. Ridley and Hamill still have plenty to do in Star Wars: Episode VIII as Rey and Luke Skywalker—and she’s really excited about it. (Is she excited because she gets to start her Jedi training?!)

“Me and Mark have been rehearsing a lot, and it’s really amazing,” Ridley told MTV News on the Oscars red carpet Sunday. “When we went back to Skellig to do the opening of [Episode] VIII, it was so crazy doing the same scene with a different crew of people. He’s amazing to rehearse with, and I’m very excited to be doing the rest of the stuff.”

“It’s such a good story,” Ridley added. “Seriously. Luke is so cool in this one. Really.”
