Bless you, Josh Gad. You’re celebrating a birthday this week, and instead of focusing on yourself, you’ve been busy trying to give us a gift. The unattainable gift: Star Wars: The Last Jedi Spoilers.
Back in January, Gad made a first attempt to get his Murder on the Orient Express co-star, Daisy Ridley to give us some spoilers for the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Attempt #1:
Unsuccessful, he let things lie for a week, and then tried again. This time, working his questions into an “updated” version of the Orient script.
Yet another failure. After this, Gad decides to bring in the big guns, in the form of Dame Judy Dench. Her deadpan line of questioning turns this video into the best thing you’ll see all month. “Have you been tested for midichlorians? Is Snoke Palpatine? Are you the last Jedi? Why don’t you answer my damn questions?” Amazing. Why isn’t she in Star Wars?
Though Ridley says “okay” at the end of the video, we never get the goods. Gad goes for a Hail Mary with his fourth (and final?) video, by bringing in basically everyone he can find. Penelope Cruz, Chris Pratt, Leslie Odom Jr., Bryce Dallas Howard, Episode IX director, Colin Trevorrow, J.J. Abrams, and more. It’s an all-star Star Wars intervention of sorts. Does Josh Gad finally get the goods? Find out below:
Well, it was a valiant effort, Josh, and we applaud you for it. Like the rest of us, you’ll just have to wait until Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15th of this year. In the meantime, you can catch Gad as LeFou in the live action version of Beauty and the Beast, out March 17th. Want more Josh Gad?
