The Star Wars: The Force Awakens Cast Practices for Lightsaber Fights in New Blu-Ray Featurette
The Blu-ray release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens has already given us Daisy Ridley's amazing audition tape and details on a bunch of deleted scenes, and now we have some behind-the-scenes footage of John Boyega and Daisy Ridley training for their fight scenes, including the TR-8R showdown and the final battle with Kylo Ren.


Ridley and Boyega had stunt doubles, but it seems that they performed a lot of the stunts themselves, and as a result had to undergo three months of physical training. In the video, you can see Daisy Ridley and John Boyega preparing for their respective lightsaber fights with Adam Driver's Kylo Ren, as well as Boyega practicing for the "Traitor!" fight with the Z6 riot control baton that can repel lightsabers.
