Star Wars: The Last Jedi fills the same basic space in the latest trilogy of chapters that The Empire Strikes Back filled in the original trilogy. In some ways it follows the template of that film, but not all.
A new behind-the-scenes look at STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI just debuted at D23 Expo in Anaheim, Calif. Director Rian Johnson surprised fans with on-stage appearances by cast members Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres on December 15th, 2017.
Lucasfilm has released fourteen images from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and they are as tantalizing as the first look photos for The Force Awakens.
Rey (Daisy Ridley), standing alone, on the edge of the ocean; a barren desert (followed by the same shot except for the spacecraft that may be about to land/crash on it; land vehicles speeding across the sand like something out of Mad Max; Finn (John Boyega) either dead or in suspended animation; Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaacs) running down a ship’s corridor; the Millennium Falcon firing on… something; a burning city; a space armada (then the same space armada with one of its ships burning), and, finally, standing in the entrance to a cave, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).
Each photo is isolated – no context at all – and that’s what makes them so intriguing. How do they all connect within the framework of the film? (Double click to embiggen)
