Daisy Ridley wishes fans a happy Star Wars day from the set of Star Wars 8

You probably don't need reminding that today is Star Wars day. To mark the annual occasion, actress Daisy Ridley has teamed up with a few of her alien friends to make a special video message thanking fans for the money raised in the Force for Change initiative. 

Check it out below...

For me, John Boyega's 'gift' to Ridley is easily the highlight of this video. I need to get my hands on one of those action figures...

There's still time for you to make a donation at CrowdRise.com/ForceForChange. All participants will be in with a chance to win a trip to Ireland to visit the location of the final scene in The Force Awakens.

May the 4th be with you!

Directed by Rian Johnson and starring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Laura Dern, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, and Benicio del Toro, Star Wars: Episode 8 opens in cinemas on December 15, 2017.
