Daisy Ridley & Oscar Isaac Celebrate 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' in Tokyo!

Daisy Ridley keeps it chic and sophisticated while striking a pose at the press conference for her anticipated film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker held at Toho Cinemas Roppongi on Thursday (December 12) in Tokyo, Japan.

The 27-year-old actress was joined at the event by her co-stars Oscar Isaac, John Boyega and Anthony Daniels, as well as Star Wars characters R2-D2, BB-8 and D-O, producer Katherine Kennedy, screenwriter Chris Terrio and writer-director J.J. Abrams.

“I will only add that when I called Chris about doing this — and you were such a big Star Wars fan, which I had been told — I was such a fan of Chris’ screenplays, and Argo I thought was so beautifully written,” J.J. expressed about working with Chris on the screenplay. “I needed to have someone writing this with me who from the very beginning reminded me of how much Star Wars meant who hadn’t been in it in a way I had.”

“I said at the very beginning,” Abrams recalled, “‘you’re going to be with me this entire time, to the very end.’ And Chris being the humble man he is, made a self-deprecating joke about me not wanting him around by the end. We were together [in the trenches], kicking every tire, shaking every tree to make the story as good as we could and I can’t tell you how grateful I am for this gentleman’s partnership.”

Daisy Ridley Says 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Feels Like The Right Time To Say Goodbye!

Daisy Ridley is gorgeous as she strikes a pose on the red carpet while attending the special fan event for her film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker held at Roppongi Hills on (December 11) in Tokyo, Japan.

The 27-year-old actress was joined at the event by her co-stars Oscar Isaac, John Boyega and Anthony Daniels, as well as Star Wars characters R2-D2, C-3PO, BB-8 and D-O, producers Katherine Kennedy and Michelle Rejwan, and writer-director J.J. Abrams.

“It feels strange when we’re in a group doing things and people ask us how it feels because then you’re like [as if in pain] Oh! And we genuinely all really do get along. So that’s sad,” Daisy told Variety about her Star Wars saga ending. “But also, I think this story, from what we filmed, [screenwriter] Chris [Terrio] and J.J. have done such an amazing job at wrapping it up, it feels like the right time to say goodbye.”

“So even though it’s sad, it feels right,” Daisy continued. “But cut to Dec. 20 when we’re done, and I’m going to be like, ‘Take me back!’”
