Josh Gad just doesn’t know when to quit. In his third attempt, in just as many weeks, the actor has tried to get answers out of Daisy Ridley regarding his questions about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. While we still don’t know whether or not Finn is paralyzed from the waist down or who are Rey’s parents, everyone has been dying to know what is the meaning behind the title The Last Jedi.
His first and second attempts proved unsuccessful when going at it alone. So this time, things are different. This time he gets his Murder On The Orient Express co-star Dame Judi Dench to pry answers out of the actress who plays Rey. Check out the video below.
Remember how Josh Gad tried to figure out what Star Wars: The Last Jedi meant by grillingDaisy Ridley for answers?
The two star together in Kenneth Branagh’s remake of Murder On The Orient Express, and it appears that Gad has continued to pester Ridley about the title while off the set. He wasn’t able to get an answer directly, but maybe if he sneaks the question in there he might get Ridley to slip up. Of course, we should all know how this video ends. But that doesn’t make the exchange any less entertaining. Check out the video below.
Since the official title for Rian Johnson‘s Star Wars: The Last Jedi was announced earlier this week, many have been speculating whether or not the “Jedi” in the title was plural or singular. Does it mean Rey or Luke Skywalker are the last of the Jedi, or is one of them literally “The Last Jedi.” The debate will probably carry on well into the days leading up to the film’s release. You don’t really expect the film to explain the title and spoil everything in the trailer, do you?
While we speculate and try to find out answers from various members of the cast in other press events, Josh Gad had something else in mind. Using whatever pull he has as the voice of Olaf in Frozen, he decided to ask Daisy Ridley, herself, the meaning behind The Last Jedi. As you might guess, he doesn’t get the answer, but the exchange itself is quite hilarious. Check out the video below.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens made some key changes to the dark faction we once knew as The Empire. Now known as the First Order, the group also added a few changes to the stormtroopers’ armor and weaponry and even gave a few high ranking ones a shiny chrome look.
Now it looks like we will be seeing more variations of the stormtrooper in the yet-to-be-titled Star Wars: Episode VIII. According to new rumors, a new never before seen stormtrooper will appear in the movie, but will still retain some similarities. Check out the full details on this rumor below.
There were many new and exciting characters that were introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while many of them we still have yet to figure out, the one that is perhaps the most mysterious is Maz Kanata. Played by Lupita Nyong’o,, Maz is no ordinary 1,000-year-old barkeep; she is a wise alien who seems to have a strong connection to the mystical side of the galaxy.
Certainly, the lack of knowing the character’s history within the Star Wars universe would be enough to have her come back for Star Wars: Episode VIII, and there has been some indication that she would, in fact, be making a return. However, Nyong’o is now saying that she hasn’t even shot her scenes yet. More on the story below.
