Daisy Ridley says she was 'surprised' by 'The Last Jedi' plot

Daisy Ridley says she was 'surprised' by 'The Last Jedi' plot

"Kelly is an unbelievable person, and she is so good in the movie and I love the character, Rose", Johnson says.

If The Last Jedi surprised her more than The Force Awakens did, as she said Tuesday morning on Good Morning America, that could mean we're in for a stunning-and possibly devastating-set of twists. With total grosses of US$1.63 billion, the live-action remake of the animated classic comes ahead of Fast and Furious 8 (US$1.235 billion) and Despicable Me 3 (US$1.032 billion) - the only films to have grossed more than one billion dollars this year.

Daisy wasnt able to enjoy filming that introduction sequence for the 2015 release as she had been “really sick” on the day, so she was thankful to have the opportunity to properly get to know Mark in between shooting the two movies.

The actress has since revealed the comical clips were all staged, but she and Gad had a little trouble teaching Dench various Star Wars sci-fi terms, because the 82-year-old had "no idea" what she was talking about.

The starlet sat down to talk about Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which hits theaters Friday December 15. And those questions don't entirely fall to the good, nor do they entirely fall to the bad.

"She put her scarf up and no one told her to do that, and we were like, 'You literally look like a Jedi knight!,'" Daisy continued, "so we've campaigned to get her in Episode IX!".

"I was more surprised with this one, because there's like - there's a few story lines that [are] sort of coming together and connecting", Daisy revealed. That would connect Rey, Poe, Kylo, Luke, and just about every major character in a way not even Han's death did, given that he wasn't an immediate part of the Resistance.

As for Rey, if those questions she's looking for answers to-about herself and her place in the universe-include learning she is the daughter of of a Skywalker, and is therefore related to Kylo, it's no wonder the line between good and bad will be blurred for her.

Actress Daisy Ridley is petitioning director J.J. Currently, only three feature films have achieved such a feat: The Force Awakens, Jurassic World (US$209 million) and the first Avengers movie (US$207 million).

“My dad said, ‘Who do you play, then?” she smiled, “but I dont know if he was joking or not, because it was only us in Ireland, and I was like, ‘Who is here dad?
