The recently released Chinese trailer for The Last Jedi is quite the stunner, featuring some clips from The Force Awakens and a couple of new bits from TLJ  including a herd of Fathiers storming what looks like a casino on Canto Bight. Run free, my pretties!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens - Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Han Solo (Harrison Ford)

Spoiler alert: Han Solo dies in The Force Awakens. According to some pre-The Last Jedi interviews picked up by ScreenRant, however, Han’s friends and family won’t have much of a chance to mourn him in the upcoming film. “We’re just keeping it moving, to be honest with you, man. It’s true. The pressure’s on, man. There’s no time,” John Boyega said. “In terms of Han, I’m sure we all feel sentimental – if someone were to sit Finn down, sit Rey down. But Rey’s off training, she’s got stuff to do. I’ve got a back injury, I’ve got stuff to do. I can’t think about Han at the moment.”

Space dad Mark Hamill and international treasure John Boyega are at it again, trolling each other on Twitter and giving us stomach pain from all of the laughter. For a complete roundup of their latest rollicking adventure, check out Mashable.

John Boyega’s delightful interview with ScreenCrush demonstrates that he is as passionate a Star Wars fan as the rest of us. In the Q&A, Boyega talks about showing up on set just to watch Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley train, and reveals what he asked Rian Johnson to change about his character coming out of The Force Awakens.

In the above interview with ScreenCrush, Boyega also shared his controversial hot take with regards to Porgs. On Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Boyega made his opinion known to Almighty Porg Creator Rian Johnson himself, as other members of the Last Jedi cast gasp in alarm. Fortunately for Porg Nation, Oscar Isaac is emphatically pro-Porg.

On the same episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Mark Hamill and Daisy Ridley discuss the “literal cliffhanger” scene that bridges The Force Awakens with The Last Jedi, and Hamill goes into detail about Luke’s edgy new facial hair.

In an interview with Collider, Rian Johnson divulged some details on what to expect when The Last Jedi eventually hits Blu-Ray and DVD –  a lot of deleted scenes. Johnson says that some of his favorite sequences had to be cut from the film to shave it down to its already lengthy two-and-a-half hour runtime. Are we going to get a three-hour director’s cut at some point? Fans can only dream.

Collider also spoke with John Boyega, who is excited for the Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone film, but would also like to see a spin-off about Yoda’s origins. Come on, Lucasfilm: Do or do not, there is no try!

Vulture reported on the Los Angeles press conference for The Last Jedi, gathering quotes from female cast members on what Carrie Fisher and Leia Organa means to them. Captain Phasma actor Gwendoline Christie said of the iconic, self-rescuing princess: “What was really instrumental for me as someone who didn’t feel like they fit in that homogenized view of what a woman was supposed to be is that there was inspiration there. You could be an individual and celebrate yourself and be successful without giving yourself over, without necessarily making some sort of terrible, huge compromise.” To us, she’ll always be royalty.
