J.J. Abrams shares more The Force Awakens screen tests for Daisy Ridley and Jennifer Lawrence (Vanessa Bayer), Shia LaBeouf (Kyle Mooney), Matthew McConaughey, John Boyega, Emma Stone, Janelle Monae (Sasheer Zamata), Jon Hamm and more.
Daisy Ridley (joined by a few friends) wishes fans a happy Star Wars Day and offers thanks for all the money raised through Star Wars: Force for Change. This marks your last chance to donate — and the chance to win a trip to Ireland and visit Skellig Michael, the iconic location of Rey’s fateful meeting with Luke Skywalker in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’.
VANITY FAIR – Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been available on iTunes since April 1, but as it turns out there are still even more secrets to be revealed about the biggest movie of 2015. In this brand-new featurette, now available on iTunes digital downloads of the film, costume designer Michael Kaplan explains his inspirations for the costume worn for nearly the entire movie by Rey (Daisy Ridley), and which has now become rightfully iconic. It had to be practical clothing for the desert, of course, but Kaplan also wanted an element of beauty for when Ridley was walking over desert sand dunes. And, as he explains, when we first meet her, “we don’t know if she’s a man, or a woman, or an alien.” So there had to be a bit of mystery in there as well.
This new feature, “Dressing the Galaxy,” is available on both new downloads of The Force Awakens on iTunes and has been added to existing downloads. If any of this explainer helps you with your homemade Rey costume for yourself, your child, or your dog, just remember: you heard it here first, and you owe us a picture.
Thanks to BuzzFeed, we have a first look at Daisy’s audition for ‘The Force Awakens’ with more behind the scenes footage!
