When Daisy Ridley was first announced for the cast of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we weren’t quite sure what to make of her, for the very good reason that we, like most people, had no idea who she was. But now that the movie’s finally opened, Ridley’s dazzled us all with her charm and talent, and we’re dying to see what she’ll do next.
Fortunately, we won’t have to wait too long. Ridley already has her first big voice role lined up in Only Yesterday, a 25-year-old Studio Ghibli feature that’ll be released in North America for the first time next year. Also lending their voices to the English-language dub are Dev Patel, Alison Fernandez, and Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano on Star Wars Rebels). Watch the Only Yesterday trailer after the jump.
