"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" actress Daisy Ridley will join Morgan Spurlock ("Super Size Me") as an executive producer on Sundance world premiere "The Eagle Huntress," which also features an original song, "Angel in the Wings," written and performed by Sia.  The film, the first feature from director Otto Bell, is set in the Altai Mountains of remote northwestern Mongolia. Bell follows Aisholpan, a 13-year old Mongolian girl who, with the support of her father and grandfather, strives to become an eagle hunter—an ancient tradition long dominated by men.
