Star Wars: Episode VIII: Daisy Ridley Says Director Rian Johnson Will Be Cheekier with Teases

Daisy Ridley may have just started officially shooting Star Wars: Episode VIII, but she's already being asked about it. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight's Ashley Crossan, she said that news will still be scarce from the set of the next Star Wars episodic adventure, but director Rian Johnson might be "a bit cheekier" with the way information is doled out.

"It's still very lovely and warm and friendly, just like seven was," on the set, she said. "I think Rian actually wants to be a bit cheekier with the little tidbits of information that come out."

She agreed that The Force Awakens footage was really a tease, as well, but they're being a bit more open here.

"You can see, even with the way Mark and Carrie posted pictures with their chairs, it's a little bit freer," Ridley said.


Star Wars: Episode VIII is shooting now, written and directed by Rian Johnson, for a December 15, 2017 release.
