Daisy Ridley, was interviewed by MTV on the red carpet at the 2016 Academy Awards, where she discussed the start of filming for Episode VIII. We know from the previous production teaser trailer that the next film picks up where it left off on that “hideaway island” that Luke disappeared to.

“When we went back to Skellig to do the opening of Episode VIII,” said Ridley to reporter Josh Horowitz, “It was so crazy doing the same scene with a different crew of people.”

When asked about her co-star, Mark Hamill, a beaming Ridley was only to happy to give her praises. “He’s amazing to rehearse with, and I’m very excited to be doing the rest of the stuff. Luke is so cool in this one.”
