Entertainment Weekly offers most revealing glimpse of 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' to date
Today, Entertainment Weekly has details of her last film as the iconic Princess Leia Organa. It's like a Furby grew wings, and then stole a pug's face. Eek! "They have been there for thousands of years, and they essentially keep up the structures on the island".
Wearing a dark wool cape, Hamill shows an aged Luke Skywalker with a scruffy grey beard and matching mustache.
A batch of new photos from Star Wars: The Last Jedi have been released - and, for fans of the franchise, they are very interesting indeed. As for Leia herself, she's also coming to terms with the death of Han and a brother in exile. "Some people recognise me, but with most it doesn't register". The Force Awakens didn't really let us spend time with a woman whose son had killed the man she once loved (and arguably still loved in some regards), so presumably there will be some fallout from that.
The Oscar-winning actor, who does a fine job of balancing dramatic fare like Sicario with appearances in blockbusters like Guardians of the Galaxy, was cast in Star Wars:The LastJedi a long time ago...but we still don't know who he's playing. "They have to seem unsafe". The leaders of the Republic had been destroyed by an attack by the First Order, and at the beginning of The Last Jedi, Leia finds herself in charge of a scattered Resistance. They speak exclusively in their native tongue, which director Rian Johnsonsays is "a blubbery sort of Scottish fish talk". Or who knows, maybe we'll even see the Praetorians go toe-to-toe with Kylo Ren, as another lesson being taught by his master, Snoke? In addition to the previously revealed Porgs, the Caretakers will also be living on the island of Ahch-To. Johnson states he didn't want Luke to be alone so he populated the island with various aliens such as the cute Porgs.
As BB-8 is said to be on Mega Star Destroyer, the droid might be on another mission to go undercover and watch the First Order's moves against the Resistance.
And the pull of the past, albeit a more recent past, will have an equally intimate pull on Luke Skywalker as it does on Star Wars fans. He recalled: "When I was exposed to the world in "Star Wars, ' I also was exposed to the reality of ignorance that still exists around the world".
Some newStar Wars: The Last Jedi photos have been released, and we are learning a lot more about Finn's trauma and how he can not escape fighting for The Resistance.
