Daisy Ridley shows her new Lightsaber skills in new video


If you’ve seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens you know that the movie ends with Rey aproaching Luke and presumably asking to be tutored in the ways of the force (although those exactly words aren’t spoken). Thanks to a new video from Daisy Ridley’s Facebook account we now know that Rey’s lightsaber abilities have improved significantly from that fight with Kylo Ren on the doomed Starkiller Base.

Ridley has been learning the ropes from real-life Jedi Master, Star Wars stunt performer Liang Yang. In addition to doing stunt work, Yang portrayed the Stormtrooper known to fans as TR-8R and in the Star Wars universe as FN-2199.

Ridley looks to have advanced her training with a wooden sword. Would Yoda approve?

If you want to see more of Ridley outside the Star Wars universe, you’ll soon get your chance. She’s been cast in “The Lost Wife” a remake of the Israeli pic “Kolma.” The film reunites her with J.J. Abrans who will be producing with Marielle Heller directing. “The Lost Wife” is based on the book by Alyson Richman. The movie is expected to premiere at Cannes Film Festival next month.
