Get ready for Daisy Ridley to give her Rey-gards to Broadway. Barbra Streisand has announced the release of Encore: Movie Partners Sing Broadway, her 35th studio album, which will recruit “some of Hollywood’s biggest stars to sing Broadway classics.” Streisand also announced stops in nine cities for a tour this summer. The list of guests on Encore hasn’t been confirmed, though one is nearly certain: The Force Awakens’s Ridley recently revealed on Instagram that she spent time in the studio with Streisand, while J.J. Abrams promised that “she’s going to record a song with an unnamed person, but a, let’s just [say] massive superstar person” earlier this year. So which Broadway standard will Ridley sing: “Don’t Rey-n on My Parade”? “Send in the Clones”? “Hopelessly Rebooted to You”? Maybe it’s best to stick with a classic, and call in Oscar Isaac:
