Or if it’s the plural form of Jedi

Daisy Ridley is already evading questions about what the title for the new Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, could mean.

In a new video from her Murder on the Orient Express co-star, Josh Gad, Ridley can be seen talking to Gad about The Last Jedi. Like most Star Wars fans, Gad has some questions about what it could mean, addressing everything from the ominous tone of the name to whether the term Jedi is singular or plural. Ridley, slightly exasperated, reminds Gad that she can’t say anything.

This isn’t the first time Ridley has had to dodge questions about The Last Jedi, either. Practically since Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released in 2015, the actress has been hounded at every opportunity for details about the eighth film. Ridley has given her opinion a few times, once expressing that she didn’t think Rey was a Jedi, but for the most part has reiterated she is under strict rules from Lucasfilm and Disney not to give any hints as to what the film is about.

While Ridley couldn’t reveal too much, Gad did “confirm” that Olaf, the adorable snowman, would return in Frozen 2. Although the offer to trade a useless scoop for insider knowledge on Star Wars didn’t work out the way Gad wanted, full points for trying. The actor voiced the character in the first one and is currently filming a short for TV called Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. The short animation is expected to be released this December.

The Last Jedi will hit theaters on Dec. 15.
