New The Force Awakens Promo Focuses on Daisy Ridley’s Rey; Offers Glimpse of Simon Pegg’s Character
We’re less than three weeks away from The Force Awakens and the promotions are coming fast and furious. Yesterday, this new Force Awakens promo appeared on the Disney Channel, and it’s focused entirely on the newest Star Wars leading lady, Daisy Ridley, aka Rey. Check it out!
Not only do we hear more about Rey’s background and her place in the story, but we also catch a behind the scenes glimpse of Simon Pegg’s costumed character:
You had to figure that J.J. Abrams would get Pegg in on the Star Wars action, Pegg having been an invaluable adviser during the making of this film. According to Spinoff Online, Abrams had this to say about his long-time friend and collaborator:
He was a sounding board. He would drop by the set because he wanted to, and when he could, he would help… We could talk about things, and he was a perfect combination of incredibly smart screenwriter, fan of the series, critical fan of the series, and friend of mine – but not just blindly supportive. He was an honest, critical friend. And he wasn’t so close to it that he became immune to things. He would come in with fresh eyes and very smart ideas. He’s one of a handful of people along the way that has been really priceless.
So, what do you think of the new promo? Are you even more hyped for The Force Awakens than you were already?
