Empire: We have to ask about Star Wars. What’s the latest on Episode VIII? Have you watched an early cut yet or is it too soon?
Daisy Ridley: I watched a sizzle reel. I went to go see Rian in the edit, and that was very…[makes excited noise] Rian sounds very happy. It’s very, very exciting. Rian doesn’t love showing stuff. I’ve seen bits and bobs, but he likes it to be done. So I think probably the first time I see it will be when it’s fully done. I don’t think anyone will see an early cut outside of the main editing team….
E: Have you heard anything about a trailer yet?
DR: No. I could probably ask, but Rogue One is out in like a week, so I guess we’ll let that come out, be amazing, let people respond to that first. One step at a time! I know there’s Celebration next year. Hopefully something will be shown there? That’s speculation, by the way…
So it sounds like we will not get any kind of trailer for Episode VIII before Rogue One. I’m still hoping some kind of teaser with a few shots, fingers crossed….
Episode VIII is scheduled for release just about one year from now, December 15 2017 and directed by Rian Johnson.
