A million voices cried out in happiness over the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer, including Daisy Ridley! The 23-year old Daisy plays Rey in the upcoming film, and even she was excited in seeing the new glimpse of the upcoming movie. When the trailer was over, Daisy couldn’t hold back her utter amazement over what she saw!
Daisy had plenty of feels over the new trailer, which debuted on Oct. 19. She shared her reaction to her Instagram shortly after the trailer aired. She and her friend were staying at a bed and breakfast, but some things could not wait! They set their alarms so they could get up to watch after the trailer dropped! Daisy was clearly overwhelmed by actually being in a Star Wars movie, as she was “totally emotional.”
“So, so, so incredibly awed to be part of this incredible legacy,” she added to the caption of the video that shows her pulling the blankets up over her face in shock! Amazing! Daisy acted in the movie — so she knows what happens — and even she was caught by surprise!
Daisy is now part of an “incredible legacy.” She will join the ranks of Carrie Fisher’s Princess Leia and Harrison Ford’s Han Solo, who were also featured in the brand new trailer. It was the first time fans got to see Leia in the new movie and it was awesome! Plus, there were plenty of shots of the Millennium Falcon dodging fire from TIE-Fighters.
Fans also got to see more of John Boyega’s Finn, Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron and Adam Driver as the villainous Kylo Ren. Of course, there was Chewbacca and BB-8. This new trailer certainly made everyone — including Daisy — excited for the new film! Star Wars fans are counting down the days until the film is released on Dec. 18.
There was one person missing from the trailer: Luke Skywalker! Mark Hamill’s iconic character didn’t appear in the new poster. Luke’s absence made fans lose their mind. They flocked to social media, demanding to know WHERE he was or why he wasn’t included in the new artwork. Some actually wondered if this new poster meant the worst had happened and Luke had gone over to the Dark Side?
What do you think about Daisy’s reaction, HollywoodLifers? Are you going to go see the new movie?
