Thanks to a post on Twitter we can finally say that the stunt video released a few days ago has nothing to do with Star Wars and Daisy Ridley...
Twitter member @stuntnova recognised the stunt video and revealed that it's actually a video made by Stunt Lab.
Apparently someone ripped off a Stunt Lab video this week and slapped on a starwars tag. Here is the video.. https://t.co/mEAsCyZqJS

From the description on Stunt Lab Facebook page:
Here is our opening for the ICON Action Stunt Lab Wire Seminar. Stuntwoman Jessi Fisher gave a demo riding our amazing 3 axis computerized nitrogen ratchet system. Which allow stunts to be performed with a moving take off, giving more life to the stunt's beginning. featuring a totally controlled flight through the air, and a pneumatically cushioned landing for the performer without the need for stunt pads in the landing area. All impact is an acting performance by the stunt person, much like taking a punch in a fight scene.
Well that's it. Case closed. Still I continue to believe that the Darkside creature photo is legit. For that old story click here.
