Rey actress Daisy Ridley appeared last night at the premiere of The Eagle Huntress, the documentary she narrates and is executive producer of, and Yahoo! Movies asked her about her thoughts on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Ridley revealed that she had met and spent time with Felicity Jones, who plays Jyn Erso in Rogue One, and shared her thoughts on what it's like to join the Star Wars universe.
On meeting Jones, Ridley said,
“I had a drink with Felicity a few weeks ago, she’s super cool! (...) We just talked about our filmmaking experiences. And I’ve been a huge fan of hers for a long time. Have you ever met her? She’s so great. So just to chill was really nice.”
On if she's jealous of Jones getting to through the process of joining the Star Wars universe, Ridley said,
“It was weird, I’ve talked so much retrospectively about what was going on [in the lead-up to Force Awakens]. It was so odd to be reliving it. And she gets to go talk about this film that she’s part of in all these amazing places. I feel like ‘jealous’ is the wrong word, but I had such a good time in the run-up to the film, and it was all so exciting. Knowing that she’s experiencing that is so great. Plus the film’s meant to be amazing, so it’s a fantastic continuation of the Star Wars world.”
Ridley's film, The Eagle Huntress, hits theatres on November 2nd. Check out the trailer below,
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theatres on December 16th.
