Short Film: Blue Season

The cast for the upcoming Star Wars VII was announced yesterday, and the only new female face was newcomer Daisy Ridley. She's made a few television appearances, but she also starred in this sci-fi short film from the Sci-Fi London 48 Hour Film Challenge where she gets to be a badass. If this short film is any indication, Ridley's character will be following in the footsteps of Portman's Amidala, rather than Fisher's Leia, sitting in a cell, waiting for rescue.

In the this short film, Ridley regains consciousness upside down in a mysterious locked room, connected to the outside world  only by an accidental phone.

It's yet another impressively powerful film from the 48 Hour Film Challenge.  It's dark atmosphere and music intensifies a promising performance from Ridley that promises good things to come for the Star Wars franchise.  Let's all keep our fingers crossed.
