After the eighth episode of the Skywalker saga was announced as Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Frozen star Josh Gad began posting videos on Facebook jokingly grilling Daisy Ridley, his co-star in the currently filming Kenneth Branagh remake of Murder on the Orient Express, about who is the titular Last Jedi.

For the third week, Gad has reeled in another Orient Express co-star, Dame Judi Dench to help pester Ridley with questions about The Last Jedi.
