Being a Jedi isn’t all about wrangling the Force and whooshing lightsabers about willy-nilly, it also takes some physical work.

Just ask Daisy Ridley, Gwendoline Christie, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran and Adam Driver – oh look, we can!

The video below takes us behind the scenes to look at just a small part of the physical training that the above five underwent for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

We wish we had that level of commitment. Then again, if we were given a role in a Star Wars flick we reckon we’d step up.

As you’re likely well aware by now, Star Wars: The Last Jedi – all two-and-a-half hours of it – hits Australian cinemas on December 14.
