A new promo image that appears to have leaked showed up on tumblr, this one featuring the late, great Carrie Fisher as General Leia. Her new regal, and dark (mourning?) robes are on full display, as she looks down in a contemplative stare. Another reminder of our loss and how hard it’s going to be to say goodbye to Leia.

 

rian johnson's the last jedi set photos John Boyega is excited about the idea of having different writers and directors on each of the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy films, and has a lot of praise for Rian Johnson, who filled both roles on The Last Jedi. In a podcast with EW (via Star Wars Underworld), the actor, reprising his role as Finn, said Johnson got to “really go crazy” on the movie.

“What people fail to understand sometimes is that the success of these stories that will stay with us long-term is to bring new ideas, is to expand the universe. So we can have new stories, new people, just a different perspective is awesome. [Rian] had a chance to really go crazy, and I’m a big Star Wars buff so certain things I saw I was just like ‘Well, that’s a first.’ And that, for me, is really cool to experience.
“Rian is just fun. Rian is just a fun guy. I have a feeling he is Santa Claus. I think Santa Claus is a part time director when it comes to December. He grows out the beard then does his thing, because he just so giving, he’s cheerful on set, and it’s always a fun time.”

a-wing RebelScum has new looks at the A-wing and Canto Bight Police Speeder toys coming from Hasbro – since K-Mart has blown the on-shelf date by a full month in some places (whoops). Most notably, the Police Speeder reveals that the casino city of Canto Bight is on the planet Cantonica. Yay, new Atlas entries!

Wearable Lego Darth Vader Helmet

The way some people are able to envision and create never fails to impress, and LEGO artist “Lego Admiral” is most impressive. He’s created a life-size, wearable Darth Vader helmet entirely out of LEGO. Suddenly, my multi-colored mech I made when I was 7 looks way less cool.

Finally, when Entertainment Tonight geek extraordinaire Ash Crossan chatted with Andy Serkis at SDCC, she asked him about the worst Snoke theory he’d heard, giving him a “Your Snoke Theory Sucks” sticker from podcaster Steele Saunders in the process. The actor jumped right on “That he is Jar Jar Binks. That’s a really sucky theory!” Let the conspiracy theorists go to town on that now that it’s all misdirection. BUM BUM BUUUUUUUM (it’s not).
