According to CBM.com a member of the Star Wars: Episode VII production staff has posted a short video clip of newcomer Daisy Ridley practicing a stunt in the upcoming sci-fi epic. Along with the clip, a new picture of an alien said to be featured in the film was also posted with the hashtag “Darkside”.
The name of the production member is Rey Phillip-Santos and he is in fact listed as working on the new Star Wars. That being said, this doesn’t make the video or picture 100% legit. The video provided does not give us a clear look at the actress flying through the air, meaning it could be anyone, and the picture may just be a fantastic cosplay that someone decided to post as the real thing.
I for one do hope that the pic is real though, from the looks of it the alien depicted is none other than Mother Talzin. Talzin is the mother of Asajj Ventress and leader of the witches of Dathomir. If this is indeed the real deal than that would lend credence to the earlier rumour of Ventress being one of the few remaining female leads left to be cast.
What do you guys think of the video and picture? Excited to see elements of ‘The Clone Wars’ brought to the big screen? Let me know in the comments below and don’t forget to heck back in to OTL News for all things Star Wars!
