The Rise of Skywalker: Year 11 pupil records a star-studded interview

Published on 20/01/20

As part of Into Film's young reporter programme, Year 11 pupil, Joe, was lucky enough to report on a very exciting interview with stars from the latest Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker. Joe interviewed Daisy Ridley and Kelly Marie Tran who play Rey and Rose Tico in the movie.

As part of Into Film’s programme, Joe has been given the opportunity to develop film reporting and reviewing skills, receive media training and attend exclusive behind-the-scenes events, developing his film watching, understanding and presenting to camera, as well as learning how the film industry works from the inside.

Joe told us, “I got to see the Star Wars film in Leicester Square two days before the London premiere. When I interviewed them, the stars were not in the least intimidating and in fact they spent time getting to know me before the interview. It was a great experience that has left me with lasting memories. The interview appears on YouTube and, at the time, it featured on Instagram stories too.”
