“Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” opens in just over a week, and plot details surrounding film are scarce. That makes sense, as it’s the finale of a nine-part space opera four decades in the making.

But that didn’t stop “Star Wars” fan Josh Gad from questioning Daisy Ridley about her character Rey and plot details from the film.

It’s a long-running gag that started when Gad and Ridley were filming 2017’s “Murder on the Orient Express.” Gad would visit Ridley in her the trailer under the guise of running lines, but instead would pepper her with questions about the then-unreleased “Last Jedi.”

Looks like Gad has made one final push to pry “Star Wars” secrets from Ridley, including the identity of Rey’s parents — a long-standing question.

That question was actually answered in “The Last Jedi” — her parents were nobodies — but fans are still holding out hope that Rey has connection to the Skywalker family given her affinity with The Force.

Gad enlists the help of over a dozen celebrities, including franchise stars Gina Carano and Pedro Pascal from “The Mandalorian” (“C’mon, we’re in the family!”), Diego Luna from “Rogue One,” and Paul Bettany from “Solo: A Star Wars Story.” Her costar John Boyega even makes an appearance.

Midway through, “Rise of Skywalker” director J.J. Abrams pops his head in, urging the actor to “Stay strong, Daisy!”

There are also cameos from Anna Kendrick, Tony Hale, Awkwafina, Sterling K. Brown, and many, many more. Unfortunately, there as successful as Kylo Ren is in prying secrets from her, so you’ll just have to wait until Dec. 20 to see.
