Daisy Ridley has traded a galaxy far, far away for the Mongolian steppe in the new trailer for the documentary “The Eagle Huntress.”
The movie, narrated by Ridley, follows a 13-year-old girl named Aisholpan, as she trains to become the first female in twelve generations of her family to become an eagle hunter.
“She’s strong, she’s brave and she’s a total natural,” Ridley says about Aisholpan in the trailer. “But when the competition ends, the real test begins,” she teases.
“The Eagle Huntress is directed by Otto Bell.
Ridley is also an exec producer on the film along with Morgan Spurlock, Jeremy Chilnick, Dan Cogan, Regina K. Scully, Marc H. Simon, Barbara Dobkin, Susan MacLaury.
It features the original song “Angel by the Wings” performed by Sia, which she co-wrote with Greg Kurstin.
“The Eagle Huntress” originally premiered at Sundance and will open in New York and Los Angeles on Oct. 28, followed by a national release in the following weeks.

A new trailer for “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” materialized Friday, this time on the Walt Disney Studios Japan YouTube page, and it is full of images and moments that haven’t been included in earlier teasers and trailers for the hotly anticipated movie.
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.
The first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens sparked worldwide excitement, and provided fans with a glimpse of new characters including Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley), as well as a new rollerball droid, a revamped Millennium Falcon and mysterious villain Kylo Ren. But there was no sign of Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia – three main characters from the original Star Wars trilogy, all of whom have key roles in JJ Abrams’s film.
Anxious fans can now breathe a sign of relief. 32 years after they last appeared together in a Star Wars film, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher will all feature in the next trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, according to a report from Latino Review.
Hamill, who was 25 years old when the first Star Wars film was released in the summer of 1977, is now 63. Ford (who was 34) is 72, and Fisher (who was 20) is 58.
If Ford’s Han Solo appears in the trailer, it also seems likely that we might get a glimpse of another character from the old films: British actor Peter Mayhew is reprising his role as Solo’s Wookiee buddy Chewbacca for Abrams’s movie. Fans are also speculating that droids R2-D2 and C-3PO might also show up.
The new trailer will be shown with Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron, released on May 1.
‘The Force Awakens‘ is one of the most anticipated movies of 2015, but fans have to wait until December.
Nor was the excitement confined to cinemas; online, the clip was reportedly viewed more than 20 million times within 24 hours, and Twitter quickly became consumed with reaction to the imagery, which paid homage to George Lucas’ original 1977 epic while also introducing new characters and locales.
If it seems unusual that an 88-second glimpse of a film that isn’t due for release until Dec. 18, could generate such intense interest, it is. But “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” isn’t the average Hollywood blockbuster – it’s easily one of the most anticipated movies of next year and possibly of the decade.
