Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley has signed on as executive producer for director Otto Bell’s documentary, The Eagle Huntress.

Morgan Spurlock, another executive producer on the film, told Deadline that Ridley joined after seeing part of the film, saying that it uncovers an “epic tale” of “female empowerment.”

Ridley later confirmed on Instagram, saying that she knew she needed to be a part of the film “the minute [she] saw The Eagle Huntress.” The story, she said, “will speak to millions all over the world.”

The Eagle Huntress tells the story of a 13-year-old Mongolian girl—Aisholpan—who is determined to become the first female eagle hunter. Supported by her father and grandfather, Aisholpan trains her first eaglet for the Golden Eagle Festival, where she’ll compete with eagle hunters from around the country.

The film will be the first to premiere in the Sundance Kids section of the Sundance Film Festival. Aisholpan and her family will travel from Mongolia for the film’s premiere.

Aside from starring in The Force Awakens, Daisy Ridley can be heard as the voice of the lead character in the North American release of the Studio Ghibli film Only Yesterday.
