Watch Daisy Ridley's mad Jedi fighting skills in new Star Wars: Episode VIII BTS video

With Star Wars: The Force Awakens literally ending with Rey (Daisy Ridley) finding Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and giving his old lightsaber back to him, it was a pretty safe bet to assume that the Jedi Master would be training Rey as his new apprentice in Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: Episode VIII.

You know, since she was also strong with the Force and all that, having basically handed Kylo Ren’s (Adam Driver) @$$ back to him in the movie. I know, I know. He was hurt at the time, so we can all give him that. But Rey was already a pretty good fighter to begin with.

If you want to get an idea at what kind of Jedi moves the director will be going for for his movie set in a galaxy far, far away, now you can have a tiny peek at what’s in store for Episode VIII thanks to this Instagram video posted by Daisy Ridley.

The actress shows off her very graceful Jedi fighting skills, helped by Liang Yang, who played the fan favorite stormtrooper known as TR-8R in The Force Awakens.


Currently filming, Star Wars: Episode VIII is slated to open in movie theaters Dec. 15, 2017.
