Cardi B has joined the Fast family! Fast and Furious star Vin Diesel shared an Instagram video on Tuesday revealing that the rapper, 27, has been cast in the ninth installment of the franchise. Cardi has a small, still-undisclosed role in the film, Entertainment Weekly reported. A rep for the rapper did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment. "Day 86 here on the set of Fast 9," Diesel says in the video. "I know I'm exhausted. I literally -- we all gave every single thing we could for this movie. Put it all on the table. Put it all out there." "I'm tired," Cardi adds in agreement. "But I can't wait. I ain't gonna front, I think this is gonna be the best one." "We're so blessed," Diesel says. "The last day of filming in the U.K. All love always." "Yup," Cardi says. "I need to take a nappy nap." Diesel captioned the video, "Last day in the UK! Pa mi Gente... #Fast92020 #Fatherhood" The casting marks Cardi's first movie since appearing in Hustlers, in which she played Diamond alongside Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer and Lili Reinhart. The "Press" singer has yet to address her latest role on her own social media, but three days ago shared a photo of herself and husband Offset with the caption, "miss you babestar" -- which she could have posted while on the U.K. set for Fast 9. Earlier this month, Cardi teased that she would be taking on another film project, telling Ellen DeGeneres on her talk show that she "enjoy[s] the checks." "I couldn't believe I was on set for 16 hours," the "I Like It" singer said of the hard work that goes into movie making. "It's like, 'Is this what actors and actresses gotta go through?'" "Artists, we have long days but it's just full of excitement. We move around, we doin' something," she continued, noting how different acting is from music. "[Acting], you like, you gotta wait on the trailer until it's your turn. You gotta do the same scene 20 times." This isn't Cardi's only new project. The mother of one is one of the hosts of Netflix's new music competition show, Rhythm + Flow, along with T.I. and Chance the Rapper. She's become known for her zingers when judging contestants on the show, saying in one clip, "They pay me to be mean, you know." "You really surprised me because you look like you work at Best Buy," she tells one hopeful contestant in a compilation clip released by Netflix. She tells another, "You're not going to L.A. You can go to Jersey." (People)

The final trailer for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker just dropped and it offers a sneak peek at all the action to come. To the Star Wars theme of "The saga will end. The story lives forever," the trailer gives away little information but it does give us a teaser of the ending. Oh, the suspense! The standout star is undoubtedly Daisy Ridley, the kick-ass feminist icon we all need in our lives. "People keep telling me they know me. No one does," she says of her fierce on-screen character Rey who can be seen slaying it in battle against Adam Driver's Kylo. "Endings are the thing that scare me the most," director J.J Abrams proclaimed. "But we also were very much aware this is the end of the trilogy and it needs to satisfy. We went into this thing knowing it has to be an ending. We're not screwing around." Daisy Ridley is joined by her A-list co-stars including Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac. Fans of the franchise have been losing their s*** over the film's impending release. "It's crazy to believe that this will be the last saga film. What an incredible trailer! A lot more-grand than I was expecting, and it seems as the Emperor is flat out coming back!! Defiantly hit all the feels!," wrote one user. Others hailed the trailer "emotional" and "epic."
