WATCH: Daisy Ridley reads kids’ Star Wars story starring BB-8 to fans

April 10th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Another cool lockdown event as Star Wars star Daisy Ridley has taken to social media to read a Star Wars story to younger fans of the franchise.

The star has read BB-8 on the Run, a kids’ story by Drew Daywalt on the official Star Wars Twitter.

It’s pretty great to know that, while we are all distancing, in many ways we’re closer than ever.

When BB-8 is separated from his master, Poe Dameron, on the lonely desert planet of Jakku, he has no choice but to keep rolling. It’s all up to him to get a top-secret map back to the Resistance so they can find Luke Skywalker and save the galaxy from the evil First Order.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
