By the end of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens,’ Rey (Daisy Ridley) was holding her own when it comes to Jedi skills, but she is still an untrained Force user. At the end of the film, Rey finds Luke Skywalker and gives him his lightsaber back. The stakes are always higher in a sequel, and it appears Rey has some Jedi training ahead of her.
Ridley gave Star Wars fans a brief glimpse of her lightsaber training in the video below. Yoda would be proud.
‘Episode VIII’ is written and directed by Rian Johnson. The film stars Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Benicio Del Toro, Gwendoline Christie, John Boyega, Lupita Nyong’o, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels, and Jimmy Vee.
‘Episode VIII’ will be in theaters on December 15, 2017.
