Josh Gad and Daisy Ridley are both part of the larger Disney family - Gad in Frozen and Beauty and the Beast and Ridley, naturally, in her breakout role of Rey in Star Wars. The pair of actors are now going to share screentime together, currently filming Murder on the Orient Express, directed by Kenneth Branagh. Gad, being a bit of a fan of Star Wars, lured Ridley to his trailer for a question.
"I invited Daisy Ridley to my trailer under false pretenses," Gad posted on instagram with a video and the hashtags "#NotARehearsal #IWantTheTruth #TheLastJedi" Gad, we appreciate your capitalization of words within hashtags.
When Ridley got to Gad's trailer, in makeup but with her hair up and protected and a robe on, she said, "You wanted to ask me something?" He said, "Yeah, I have something really important to ask you. I meant to call you last night. It's about today's scene," luring her in. "Um, who are the last Jedi?"
"We're not doing this Josh," she said with a smile and a chuckle. "Cause is it 1 or is it more than 1? Is it plural?" he begged. "I can't ask you about Frozen 2!" she replied. "I'll tell you that Olaf is in Frozen 2! Is it more than one Jedi? It sounds ominous." he said. "It does sound ominous. We can't have this conversation," she said, stone faced. "Does something happen to you and Mark [Hamill], or just Mark? Are you a Jedi? Answer my damn question, Daisy!
Today, Josh Gad is all of us, Star Wars fans. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to crack a pro like Ridley, and all we can do is continue to speculate.
