It's been nearly three months since Star Wars: Episode VII hit theaters, and it'll be nearly two years until Episode VIII arrives on Dec. 15, 2017. Fortunately, Daisy Ridley is here to do a little bit of teasin'. The Artist Currently Known As Rey caught up with MTV News on the Oscars red carpet to tease the next installment of the series, including her work with Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker.

“Me and Mark have been rehearsing a lot, and it’s really amazing,” Ridley says. “When we went back to Skellig to do the opening of [Episode] VIII, it was so crazy doing the same scene with a different crew of people. He’s amazing to rehearse with, and I’m very excited to be doing the rest of the stuff.”

Ridley added, "It’s such a good story. Seriously. Luke is so cool in this one. Really.”
