Josh Gad Continues to Bug Daisy Ridley for Star Wars: The Last Jedi Secrets


Basically, Josh Gad tweaked the Murder on the Orient Express script just a little in an effort to get co-star Daisy Ridley to share more Star Wars secrets.

While Daisy Ridley tries to cultivate a successful career independent of Star Wars, Josh Gad has no problem standing in her way and locking her in a trailer to hammer her with questions about said franchise. Obviously, he’s doing this for the greater good, and I’m sure she’s in on it. But it must be difficult to focus on the project at hand when everyone’s got Star Wars on the brain.

In his previous interrogation, the Beauty in the Beast star boldly asked Ridley, “Who are the last Jedi?” Of course, following the announcement that Episode XIII would be subtitled The Last Jedi, fans took to the internet to discuss whether Jedi was being used as a singular or plural. Including Gad.

In his “follow-up conversation with Daisy Ridley on set”, this time he calls upon a third, unseen culprit: Kenneth Branagh. In addition to directing Murder on the Orient Express, Branagh is also set to star, as well as, make minor adjustments to the script here and there as seen below.

Gad posted the full video to his Facebook page where he asks Ridley a few very important questions, like “who are Rey’s parents?” and “is Finn paralyzed from the waist down?” As every Star Wars fan can attest, these are the most important questions to ask in today’s desperate times.

Then, Gad leaves it to Ridley to “answer honestly.” Watch below:

Now, I thought it was apparent from the first video that this was a joke. Though, according to the beginning of this video, not everyone gets it. Even the comments on Gad’s Facebook page seem a little hostile.

Let’s all remember that Josh Gad works with Disney on the regular (Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, and Frozen 2). Therefore, he probably understands how “under wraps” things are.

Plus, I think there are other people who are much more invasive than he is jokingly trying to be.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters on Dec. 15 of this year.
