Look, Josh Gad is fucking trying. The latest in his ongoing series of duplicitous attempts to get Daisy Ridley to reveal Last Jedi plot details has come out, and he has called in no higher authority than Dame Judi Dench for help. The three all have supporting roles in Kenneth Branagh’s upcoming adaptation of Murder On The Orient Express, but Gad does not give a shit about that movie. Dench appears in the video suddenly, with the hushed, omniscient presence of a Bene Gesserit witch, but uses her powers here for good, asking Ridley, point blank, if she is the titular last Jedi, if Snoke is Palpatine, and more.

In a twist ending, Ridley cannot say no to Dame Judi Dench; it is unclear if anyone could deny the Dame. She gets what she wants, and in this case, it is plot details about The Last Jedi. Perhaps in the next video we will be allowed to listen in.
