Daisy Ridley has posted a new Instagram video that shows off her extensive Jedi training
When we last left Rey at the end of J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Daisy Ridley’s young hero had just tracked down legendary Jedi Luke Skywalker. Last month, in celebration of Ridley’s birthday, Mark Hamill shared a look at exactly what Rey’s Jedi training with him entails. Today, however, it’s Ridley herself who delivers (via Instagram) a behind-the-scenes look at Rey’s fight training! Check out Daisy Ridley performing some Jedi Wushu moves in the player below!
