Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley has secured a narrating role on the documentary Asteroid Hunters.
Clearly not ready to kiss goodbye the stars, she’s jumping straight from The Rise of Skywalker over to a project that will take a “fascinating look at asteroids, their cosmic origins and the potential threat they pose to our world”.
Asteroid Hunters will be released in select IMAX theatres from April 17.
