It's been all but confirmed that actress Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) will star in the upcoming 2016 Star Wars Stand Alone Film directed by Gareth Edwards. The actress was asked about Star Wars by MTV's Josh Horowitz on the Red Carpet at last night's Academy Awards. Jones dodged the question saying, "I can’t talk about it, I’ll lose my life!" in reference to Lucasfilm's secrecy about the upcoming film.
Horowitz also caught up with Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens star Lupita Nyong'o on the red carpet and asked her about working in Star Wars, to which she replied, "Being part of the ‘Star Wars’ franchise, I’m sure will change my life even more."
You can watch both Jones and Nyong'o respond to questions about Star Wars in the video below,
The first stand alone film will be released on December 16th, 2016 and is directed by Gareth Edwards.
