The seventh movie in the Star Wars saga features the return of original trilogy cast members Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill along with newcomers John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Domhnall Gleeson, Oscar Isaac and Game of Thrones’ Gwendoline Christie.

So far fans have been speculating as to the characters of Rey and Finn, who played by Ridley and Boyega respectively, as only their first names have been revealed – no surnames as of yet.

But this new ad from battery producers Duracell, titled ‘Battle for Christmas Morning’, could have just dropped the proverbial Jedi bomb.

But enough with Duracell’s storyline, it’s the seventh film’s plot we really care about. Fans have seen a couple of trailers and an official poster so far but notably, C-3PO’s red arm has been missing from both.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally arrives on 17 December, so there’s not long to wait to find out the truth.

Not long from now, in a studio not far, far away… Jimmy Kimmel will do a special dedicated to Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Disney-owned ABC said today that Jimmy Kimmel Live! will focus its November 23 show on the upcoming Disney movie, and welcome director J.J. Abrams and stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver and John Boyega. No mention of that “other” trio from the original trilogy who are returning for this seventh flick in the Star Wars universe. In anticipation of the film and the JKL special Kimmel and his co-horts sported Star Wars costumes for Halloween. Bummer if someone actually was relegated to carbon-frozen Han Solo duty.

Making it and breaking it in Hollywood sometimes boils down to the next audition, the next fortuitous meeting, the next tape. A couple of years ago, Daisy Ridley was just one young actress making the rounds, paying her rent with wages made at a London pub, but then the magic happened. The west London native, youngest of five sisters, had recently wrapped a string of British TV roles when she got the chance to audition for a little sci-fi picture set in a galaxy far, far away.

From the moment news of her casting in J.J. Abrams’s Star Wars: Episode VII—The Force Awakens hit last year, the then-unknown became an object of fan obsession. And, despite the deep secrecy with which the re-ignition of George Lucas’s great saga has been treated, one gets the sense that Ridley is on the verge. What the world has seen so far of the 23-year-old, most of it in character, as Rey, a tanned warrior outfitted in desert garb, is just the beginning of the life-altering rise for the young actress.

But despite the action figures already being made in her likeness and the merchandise that promises to make her a household name, Ridley seems devoted to keeping her cool. As she tells her Force Awakens co-star, Princess Leia herself,Carrie Fisher, Ridley doesn’t know exactly what’s to come, but she’s ready.

CARRIE FISHER: We finally made it into interview mode, our destiny. Where are you?
DAISY RIDLEY: I’m in the car. I just got back from the airport in Berlin.

FISHER: Why were you in Berlin?
RIDLEY: I was doing press there, meeting all the lovely Germans.

FISHER: Are they embarrassed with the whole thing with Volkswagen? They have to recall, like, 200 million of them.
RIDLEY: I didn’t ask them about their Volkswagens. [laughs]

FISHER: I think you should. This is what I can teach you. This is how I make friends in foreign countries: Ask them about the biggest scandal since Fascism. Well, all right. I’m going to ask you questions, as the older person. Who were your role models as a child?
RIDLEY: Acting ones, or just people?

FISHER: I’ll go with both. I feel like we’re on Password.
RIDLEY: Well, my favorite film was Matilda [1996]. So I’m going to say the little girl [Mara Wilson] in that. I aspired to be like her. [laughs] I wanted to be a girl who could make a jug of water tip into a glass.

FISHER: Did you see old movies?
RIDLEY: My film knowledge is pretty shocking. I’m trying to correct that.

FISHER: I can help you with that. Not that that’s what you really want from me … [laughs] I actually did a show called On the Lot. I was supposed to be someone who knew about film, and I knew about two directors, and spent about three months watching every foreign film.
RIDLEY: Send the list of films you watched, and I’ll spend three months watching them all.

FISHER: So what actors do you like now? Besides me, of course.
RIDLEY: Of course you. Carey Mulligan and Felicity Jones are two of my favorites. I’m not so much younger than them. I like that. It’s kind of aspirational.

FISHER: And males? Any crushes?
RIDLEY: Not really! I’ve never been one for crushing on famous people.

FISHER: Cary Grant! Do you know who that is?
RIDLEY: Maybe I could appreciate the old-school film stars more.

FISHER: Because they were glamorous.
RIDLEY: Exactly. And mysterious.

FISHER: Actors today need to be too accessible. Who can have a crush on someone accessible? [laughs] The origin of the word romance is “not founded in reality.”
RIDLEY: People have been asking me about crushes out of the original film, and I say you every time. They were like, “Is there anyone you particularly look up to?” And I’m like, “Well, Carrie, obviously.”

FISHER: That’s good. You didn’t like Mark [Hamill] or Harrison [Ford]? This is the only time we’d ever have this conversation. [laughs]
RIDLEY: Of course, I like them both! But you’re a kick-ass woman.

FISHER: I’m your predecessor, I think.
RIDLEY: Exactly. You paved the way for all the girls.

FISHER: It was my gravel! Girl gravel! Girl-vel! So what did they ask you in Berlin?
RIDLEY: Mainly I’m asked how I got the role, did I like Star Wars before, and am I ready for what’s to come.

FISHER: And what do you say? Yes, yes, yes?
RIDLEY: I say, “I auditioned for the role because everyone did. I was there at the right time.”

FISHER: You were telling me about it! You auditioned five times or something?
RIDLEY: Yeah. I liked Star Wars, but I wasn’t an überfan like many people are. Which I didn’t realize, actually, until this year. I don’t know if I can prepare for what’s to come because I don’t know what will.

FISHER: How would you not be ready? How can you prepare for what’s to come in life? You should ask them back. I would be interested in that answer.
RIDLEY: I mean, I don’t know what’s to come. They also ask if you guys gave us any advice. You didn’t. Except for—

FISHER: Wait a minute! You said I didn’t? You fucker! We were at that first party, that horrifying thing that I was always late to …
RIDLEY: And you talked about stalkers?

FISHER: I said, “fans.” I didn’t just say “stalkers”! Fans are awesome.
RIDLEY: Oh, yeah. I have talked about that.

FISHER: The fan thing is amazing! It’s quite a spectrum. What else did I say?
RIDLEY: I remember you saying that when you take pictures with people, you can feel their heart racing, and it humanizes them.

FISHER: Aw. I also said it’s hard to date once you’re a big Star Wars star because you don’t want to give people the ability to say, “I had sex with Princess Leia.”
RIDLEY: [laughs] Now I remember.

FISHER: Ah! I thought I shocked you. [both laugh]
RIDLEY: Someone asked me if I found it easier to date now because I’m in the film. I was like, “What the hell?”

FISHER: What a stupid question.
RIDLEY: Oh my God. I’m in the car right now next to a Jedi robe in a Star Warsshop. It’s next to McDonald’s and a kebab shop. How weird is that?

FISHER: So it’s McStar Wars. I didn’t know there was a Star Wars shop. I haven’t seen myself as a wax figure. I guess you haven’t either, so I’ll be able to go do that, and then I’ll give you advice. Like, “Bring a match.” Or something.
RIDLEY: [laughs] Oh my God.

FISHER: That’s good advice! Did you know they’ve come out with Star Wars Band-Aids?
RIDLEY: Are there?

FISHER: Yes, I just saw them. They sent me a Star Wars suitcase … Daisy, will you do me a favor?
RIDLEY: Of course. What can I do?

FISHER: I want you and I to go to Vegas with all the swag and act like we’re normal people carrying Star Wars suitcases that they just sent me-hats, dresses … We will be put in a mental asylum, but it will be a very popular one after we get there. Will you consider that?
RIDLEY: [laughs] That sounds like the best plan, actually. I’m down.

FISHER: You think that’s a joke! It’s going along with being merchandized. You can’t just merchandize us; we’ll merchandize you right back! Have they shown you any little dolls of you yet?
RIDLEY: Yeah! I got sent some.

FISHER: How many are there?
RIDLEY: Someone said today there were four, but I’m not sure.

FISHER: Do they come with outfits and stuff?
RIDLEY: No, there’s just one.

FISHER: Oh my God, you’re going to be a Halloween costume. How do you feel about that?
RIDLEY: I’ve seen some really cute kids dressed as Rey. I love that.

FISHER: My favorite is when you see, like, a month-old kid dressed as you, so that it looks like the mother swallowed your outfit when she was pregnant, and the baby came out like that. Now I get to have someone to talk about it with—you!
RIDLEY: We can just go to Vegas with all of our Star Wars swag and a one-month-old baby.

FISHER: We’ll have the best rooms in that fucking asylum. And we’ll have the best doctors.
RIDLEY: [laughs] I can’t wait.

FISHER: Oh, you’re going to have people have fantasies about you! That will make you uncomfortable, I’m guessing.
RIDLEY: Yeah, a bit.

FISHER: Have you been asked that?
RIDLEY: No, they always talk about how you’re a sex symbol, and how do I feel about that. [Fisher sighs] I’m not a sex symbol! [laughs]

FISHER: Listen! I am not a sex symbol, so that’s an opinion of someone. I don’t share that.
RIDLEY: I don’t think that’s the right—

FISHER: Word for it? Well, you should fight for your outfit. Don’t be a slave like I was.
RIDLEY: All right, I’ll fight.

FISHER: You keep fighting against that slave outfit.
RIDLEY: I will.

FISHER: I’m looking forward to your space kiss.
RIDLEY: My space kiss?

FISHER: You’re going to have to have one. Every girl does.
RIDLEY: [laughs] At this point, we’ll wait and see, I guess.

FISHER: This is what we’ll really talk about in Vegas. Is your mom excited? Are your sisters?
RIDLEY: I think so. My sister loves the movies.

FISHER: She looks a lot like you, doesn’t she?
RIDLEY: Yeah. People are going to think she’s me.

FISHER: Oh my God. And Keira Knightley. You just ruined her career. [laughs] Oh! I just got handed some pajamas that neither one of us is on. I think we should really get upset about certain things like this. It’s not sexist, but space-ist.
RIDLEY: When we’re in Vegas, we should also do a campaign about the space-istStar Wars films.

FISHER: Totally! Wow, we’ve got a big trip planned.
RIDLEY: We’ll have a big billboard. It’s going to take a while.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens composer John Williams recently welcomed a pair of enthusiastic fans to his scoring sessions for the highly anticipated seventh installment in the space-opera franchise, and they naturally took to social media to praise the Oscar winner’s musical prowess.

The lucky fans’ names? John Boyega and Daisy Ridley, a.k.a. The Force Awakens lead characters Finn and Rey. On Wednesday, the actors posted Instagram photos of their visit to Williams’ world.

Boyega posted a selfie with “The man himself John Williams!” and added, “I watched him make magic today. The music is EPIC!” The rest of us will have to wait a few more weeks to hear Williams’ score for The Force Awakens. The film opens Dec. 18, and the soundtrack hits stores the same day.

JOHN WILLIAMS!!!!!!!!!!!! Today is incredible ??????????????????

Very few people had heard of Daisy Ridley before director JJ Abrams handpicked her to star in the brand new Star Wars film. The actress – who had made small appearances in Casualty and Mr Selfridge – was catapulted into the spotlight in 2014 when it was announced she would be joining the likes of Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson and many more in the brand new Star Wars film.

Ridley plays Rey who features heavily in the latest trailer for The Force Awakens, released in the States overnight. But while many Americans watched it at halftime during an ESPN football game, she set an alarm and got her first glimpse curled up in bed at a B&B. The 23-year-old tasked her friend with capturing her initial reaction on camera and it’s really rather sweet…

The official trailer of JJ Abrams’s highly anticipated Star Wars installment, The Force Awakens, has been unleashed and opens with a masked figure seen scaling the gigantic interior of blackened ruins. A voiceover poses the compelling question: “Who are you?”

Without ever completely answering that question, the trailer, which premiered on the sports cable network ESPN during halftime of the Monday night NFL game, appears to establish who the film’s three lead characters are.

At two minutes and 23 seconds long, this latest trailer is the longest preview yet of the film. The seventh episode in the series picks up three decades after the events of Return of the Jedi (1983) and, as the trailer shows, features many of the characters from the original trilogy.

JJ Abrams’s space opera will premiere in Los Angeles on 14 December – a few days before it opens worldwide, on 17 December in the UK and Australia, and in the following day in the US.

Cinema websites in the UK have already crashed under the weight of demand for first screenings of the film, which will have a running time of 136 minutes.
