See Daisy Ridley Narrate Sundance Film ‘The Eagle Huntress’ Trailer


Girl power takes over everywhere.

In the 2016 Sundance fan favorite ‘The Eagle Huntress’, thirteen-year-old Aisholpan is a Kazakh child from the Altai Mountains who has some big goals for her life. She wants to be an eagle hunter like her father. This is unheard of because she will be the first woman eagle huntress for over 12 generations. After her competition ends is when her real test begins, see if she can survive as an Eagle Huntress.

The film is narrated (and executive produced) by a girl that knows how to overcome diversity, Daisy Ridley, who play Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. If that’s not enough, the movie also features original music by normally faceless performer Sia.


The Eagle Huntress releases in New York and LA on October 28, 2016 and will expand after that.
