The Hollywood Reporter has a big write up about the new cast of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS this month. Did you guys catch that FORCE AWAKENS international trailer? Interesting stuff, although they're sneaking up on spoilers in a few of those scenes. Best to stop right there before any of the mysteries they've been going out of their way to create get solved with some of that notorious internet sleuthing that spoiled the big character switcheroo in JJ Abrams last movie. I do like this trailer for it's increased emphasis on Daisy Ridley, aka Rey. She represents some of the mystery currently conspiring to drive Star Wars fans nuts. Like, is she Leia and Han's kid? Yeah, I'm not even going to speculate there. Daisy herself though is a nice little addition to this universe. Is it me or does she kind of look like a petite version of Hayley Atwell in this movie?
I wonder what the odds are on Daisy getting fitted for her own gold bikini. Probably slim, considering that at this point in the Star Wars timeline Jabba's charred corpse is festering under 30 years of Tatooine sand drifts. Just as long as Rey doesn't go cavorting with any
Care Bears Ewoks (or worse - Gungans), I'm down with whatever Daisy and the folks behind the scenes have in mind for Rey. I'm not sure if she'll ever be a replacement for an equally young Carrie Fisher, but few could be. That doesn't stop Daisy from being totally adorable.
