Watch: Daisy Ridley Trains to Be a Jedi in New Swordplay Video
There has been much speculation about whether Rey will become a Jedi Knight in the new series, and now we might have another small clue. Daisy Ridley has just posted a training video for Episode VIII, and it definitely doesn't look like she's fighting with a staff:



She's using one hand, so it can't really be a staff (or even a Darth Maul-style saberstaff). The length of the practice weapon she's holding looks very much like a lightsaber, and while we can't be sure, this definitely implies that Rey is about to finish(?) her Jedi training, possibly under Luke's tutelage. Unless she becomes a Sith, of course, but that seems highly unlikely.

She also looks incredibly adept with the weapon in spite of her lack of training, which many have already noted. Ridley may not use her skills to their full potential in the movie, but if she does, then it definitely gives some credence to those "crazy" leaked script rumors

Star Wars: Episode VIII opens on December 15, 2017.
