Daisy Ridley Practices Swordplay While TR8-T0R Fumbles.

Angry Rey

A brief behind-the-scenes look at Daisy Ridley practicing a bit of swordplay takes a turn to the unexpectedly funny when her instructor Liang Yang (who played FN-2199/TR-8R) falls over backward while filming her.





Aside from the laugh that this provides, this also lets us know that filming for one of Rey’s lightsaber scenes has either recently happened or will soon happen – roughly two months into production, for frame of reference. If Episode VIII ends up having a similar production cycle as The Force Awakens, that would suggest that filming for the movie will wrap up by September or October, and that roughly a quarter of the movie has been filmed so far. The shooting schedule for the movie (jumping from Ireland to Croatia and back) suggests that the movie isn’t being filmed in-sequence, so it ought to be interesting to see what information leaks out about the other scenes shot on location. We’ll be sure to cover more on this subject and others in this week’s Star Wars social media recap.
