in Movies, Star Wars

What’s a young girl like Rey to do after meeting up with legendary Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker at the end of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”?

Quite simply, do exactly what Luke did when he found out just how Force-sensitive he really was: get to training!

Though it’s still unclear if she will indeed be Luke’s latest apprentice, even though it’s a good bet, it certainly looks like she’s putting in a lot of time working on her lightsaber skills for good reason. That means we can expect to see some epic duels featuring Rey in the forthcoming “Star Wars: Episode VIII”.

Here we see Daisy Ridley training hard with the stunt team, specifically Liang Yang who played the infamous FN-2199 stormtrooper affectionally nicknamed “TR-8R” who duels with Finn in “Force Awakens”.

Will Rey get her very own lightsaber? Will she be teaming up with Luke to take down his former apprentice Kylo Ren once and for all? All the answers to this and much more will be known when “Episode VIII” arrives in theaters December 15, 2017.
