Daisy Ridley is a Literal Force in New THE LAST JEDI Training Featurette

Warning: This post contains minor spoilers from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Proceed with caution, Padawans!

Happy Rey Day, everyone! Lucasfilm has officially made today the day to honor Rey, the primary heroine of the new Star Wars trilogy. In exactly two weeks, The Last Jedi will shed some additional light on Rey’s past as she charts her course for the future. Of course, Rey will have an even larger share of action scenes for this sequel, now that she’s been revealed as a powerful Force user. A newly released video has given us a look at Daisy Ridley‘s Last Jedi training sessions, and director Rian Johnson just couldn’t stop himself from offering up a few spoilers for context.

Ridley’s training was interesting to watch not only to see how she practices her moves, but also for any hints they provided about the movie. For example, one of the last clips in this video follows Ridley as she rehearses a fight with several lightsaber-wielding opponents at once. We’re really looking forward to watching that battle play out on screen.

The video also features a few of Ridley’s co-stars training for their fights, including Adam Driver and Kelly Marie Tran, the latest addition to The Last Jedi cast. It’s good to know that Rose Tico will be able to handle herself in a fight, but the other major attraction here is the grudge match between Gwendoline Christie‘s Captain Phasma and John Boyega‘s Finn. Boyega also dropped a potential spoiler about that battle while hyping it up here.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will arrive in theaters on Friday, December 15.
