Daisy Ridley Confirms Recent Clip Of Luke And Rey Is How “Episode VIII” Begins

When I reported a few weeks ago that we had our first clip of “Star Wars” Episode VIII”, I got flack from friends and readers that this was just the same clip that appeared at the end of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. I had seen “The Force Awakens” 6 times, and although similar, I knew this was something we had never seen before. Turns out I was right and that clip was actually our first look at “Episode VIII”.

Daisy Ridely was recently interviewed by MTV News at this year’s Academy Awards and here is what she had to say:

“Me and Mark have been rehearsing a lot, and it’s really amazing,” Ridley told MTV News on the Oscars red carpet Sunday (February 28). “When we went back to Skellig to do the opening of [Episode] VIII, it was so crazy doing the same scene with a different crew of people. He’s amazing to rehearse with, and I’m very excited to be doing the rest of the stuff.”

“It’s such a good story,” Ridley added. “Seriously. Luke is so cool in this one. Really.”
