She’s already traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and now Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Daisy Ridley is sending fans a dispatch from the social media universe.

The actress shared her very first Instagram post on Saturday, just before Star Wars is to take center stage at Disney’s D23 Expo. The picture shows her taking a non-intergalactic sort of transportation to get to the big event.

“HEY INSTAGRAM! Coming to you live from #D23EXPO #starwars#theforceawakens (trying to keep my dress crease less!)” she wrote.

Ridley plays Rey in the film, alongside other Star Wars franchise newcomers like Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, and Lupita Nyong’o, plus returnng stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, and Harrison Ford.

EW revealed new details and exclusive photos from The Force Awakens in this week’s Fall Movie Preview, and will have more on the film from the D23 panel as it happens.
