Balance of the Force: A Brief Look Behind the Scenes of The Last Jedi with Daisy Ridley
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be available on home video soon, but until then here is something to appease your appetite, as E! News has an exclusive one minute clip taking you behind the scenes of Ahch-To.
In an exclusive clip from E! News, we briefly go behind the scenes, seeing Daisy Ridley working with a stunt Skywalker lightsaber, the water sequence when she goes straight for the dark, and we get Rian Johnson’s explanation of the difference between both sides of the Force in a voice over.
You can watch the one minute clip here.
Daisy Ridley gives her take on Rey, who she is to her core as a person – driven by an undying sense of hope and unwavering faith in people:
“She doesn’t see herself as this thing. People talk about her potential and all this stuff, and she says, you know, ‘I’m scared about what I’m feeling.’ What I’ve always loved about her is that she tries to see the good in things and she’s hopeful, and she hopes that what she thinks is there is there.”
The Last Jedi‘s writer and director Rian Johnson offers his brief understanding of the stark differences between the opposite ends of the mystical power that binds the galaxy together:
“With the Force there’s a light path which is about selflessness, and there’s the dark side which is about anger and protecting what’s yours…the quick and easy path.”
In a movie rich with complexities, uncertainty, and having to choose paths, Johnson provides one sense of clarity when it comes to the Force – the difference between its two sides that ultimately bring balance, and that everyone has that ultimate choice to make, and in The Last Jedi it was time for Rey to make hers.
