We already know what the next episode in the Star Wars saga is called, we know it’s about multiple Jedi knights, and we keep seeing spoilers here and there. But we still have to wait quite a while for Episode VIII to hit theaters. Apparently, many fans are growing impatient, as they’re dying to know what happens next. But unless you’re a well-connected star, you can’t really go around to Star Wars actors and ask them to answer your questions about The Last Jedi.
If you’re Josh Gad, then you have the means to try to pressure Daisy Ridley, who plays Rey in the new saga, to reveal the plot of the upcoming episode. The actor posted a video on Instagram showing how he ambushed Ridley for Star Wars spoilers. It’s not the first time he’s done it, but this time he didn’t ask her any questions himself. After all, he wasn’t able to persuade her with his previous pranks.
Gad went a different route this time around, employing a slew of celebrities to try to convince Ridley to give up some secrets. The list of stars who want to know what happens next in Star Wars includes Chris Pratt, Penelope Cruz, Bryce Dallas Howard… and even J.J. Abrams.
They all ask Ridley various questions, but Ridley doesn’t say a single thing. Well, Pratt only talks about his upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy sequel and other movies he’s in, so he doesn’t really count. But it’s Abrams, the director of The Force Awakens, who gets to troll Ridley the hardest. Check out Gad’s Instagram video below.
This has been a battle of attrition. #daisyridley has been a force to be reckoned with. In many ways she is the Vader to my Luke or the Taylor to my Katy. But like any good opponent, I have tried to outmaneuver her at every turn. This will be her final judgement. May the force be with her, because kids, she is going to need it. All I ask is that you don't ruin the surprise for others. #TheLastJedi #starwars #broughtsomefriendsalongfortheride @disney @starwars @penelopecruzoficial @prattprattpratt @brycedhoward @colintrevorrow @leslieodomjr @lucyboynton1 @brycedhoward @derek.connolly #tombateman @jjabramsofficial
