Star Wars' Daisy Ridley lands first post-Rise of Skywalker movie

Ready to hunt some asteroids?

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.
