Rian Johnson and producer Ram Bergman held a press conference in Paris to promote the release of The Last Jedi. They reveal some interesting tidbits about the production process, including a slight script change Johnson requested from J.J. Abrams in The Force Awakens. Check out the above video from Planète Star Wars for some highlights.

Call your babysitters – The Last Jedi has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA, like The Force Awakens before it. But Rian Johnson assures fans that the sequences of sci-fi action and violence that merit the PG-13 rating are no more intense than anything in the original trilogy or the prequel trilogy. So, immolation and mass murder of children are still fair game.

Young Lando Calrissian

According to EW, no, Lando Calrissian will not be in The Last Jedi, so stop asking and leave him to his reformed lifestyle in peace, thank you very much.

A Japanese teaser trailer for The Last Jedi includes an intriguing new shot of Rey stretching out her arm to (ostensibly) use the Force, and she certainly doesn’t look happy. You wouldn’t like her when she’s angry…
