Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens

  • Movie

The Force may be with you, always, but the 4th only happens once a year.

The annual Star Wars Day, aka May 4, aka May the 4th Be With You, has arrived, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens star Daisy Ridley has a message for fans: “HAPPY STAR WARS DAY Y’ALL!!!”

The actress posted a series of photos to her Instagram account on Wednesday from the Force Awakens shoot, including one of her and costar John Boyega (who played Finn in that film, opposite Ridley’s Rey) holding hands.

In addition to the social media love, Ridley also participated in the latest video for Force for Change, the organization that “aims to support the immense passion and goodwill” of Star Wars fans and “promote change through inspiration, stories and meaningful partnerships.” Thus far, Force for Change has raised more than $2 million.

In the clip, Ridley thanks fans for their generosity, and also gets a gift from Boyega: a Finn doll. “Wow, John, that is so you.”

Shot on the set of Episode VIII, the video also includes an appearance from BB-8 and some other Star Wars creatures.
