UPI News Service, 03/03/2016
Daisy Ridley divulged as much information as she could about the next "Star Wars" movie, which she opens opposite Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker.
After a brief clip from Lucasfilm announced last month the beginning of production for "Star Wars: Episode VIII," Ridley told MTV at the Academy Awards she and Hamill have been "rehearsing a lot, and it's really amazing."
"When we went back to Skellig to do the opening of '8,' it was so crazy doing the same scene with a different crew of people," she said, referring to the final scene of "Episode VII" and the expected opening scene of "Episode VIII."
"He's amazing to rehearse with, and I'm very excited to be doing the rest of the stuff."
After a brief moment, the British actress enthusiastically added, "It's such a good story. Seriously. Luke is so cool in this one. Really."
