Star Wars The Last Jedi

There’s a chance it could be the latter, and it just might be part of their overarching mission to infiltrate the First Order. We get this shot of Rose and Finn impersonating First Order officers, something that was rumored awhile back. What is their mission? Your guess is as good as ours.

Whatever their mission is, it may have been doled out here in this room. There’s Rose wearing the look we’ve seen her spot in several photos from the set. And there’s Finn wearing Poe’s old jacket with a new shirt and pants. Plus, Poe Dameron is there wearing a stylish new jacket with the Rebel Alliance symbol on the shoulder. It appears there might be some medical equipment lying around, which makes me think this scene is taking place shortly after…

Finn waking up. We’ve seen the device that Finn was recovering in from the teaser for The Last Jedi. He was still knocked out in that shot, but this appears to be the moment that he wakes up, because he is lifting that glass shield hanging above himself. Check out this fancy space slippers!

Speaking of Rose, here’s a cool shot of her from the sizzle reel. We can’t be sure, but that looks like the ramp leading up to the Millennium Falcon behind her. However, since the Falcon is on Ahch-To at the beginning of the movie and presumably remains in the hands of Rey and Chewie throughout The Last Jedi, that would mean this shot would have to be taking place later in the movie when our heroes have had a chance to reunite. Of course, there’s a chance that’s just a ramp into another ship instead. What I’m wondering is how Rose gets caught up with our heroes in the battle against the First Order. A couple shots from the sizzle reel might hold the answer.

Upon quick inspection, this is just the shot of a Resistance gunner doing their job. However, let’s not forget that the Vanity Fair article taught us that Rose has a sister named Paige who was a gunner, one who is coached by Poe Dameron at some point. Paige is played by a Vietnamese actress named Veronica Ngo, and that appears to be her in the gunner pod. This is further confirmed by the design on her helmet matching that of the one seen on her character’s LEGO minifigure from a leaked piece of box art for an upcoming building set from The Last Jedi. Why is this important? It might be the reason as to why Rose becomes more integral in the fight.

When I saw this shot in the sizzle reel the first time, I was wondering just what the hell was going on. Who is that falling down into this assembly of orbs? What is this location at all? Well, I suspect that this character might be Paige, since she’s wearing the same jumpsuit, and perhaps she’s captured by the First Order? This could also be a shot of her falling to her death somewhere. No matter what specifically is happening, I think something will happen to Paige and that will be the driving force for Rose to make the jump from Resistance maintenance worker to being a key part of fighting the First Order.

As for the rest of the Resistance, what are they up to? They’re having their usual meetings around holograms and dashboards. Here’s Carrie Fisher on one of those sets now, talking to director Rian Johnson. This appears to be from the sequence teased in The Last Jedi trailer, and it just might be before the First Order makes that attack we highlighted earlier in this breakdown.

At some point, General Leia has a meeting with a new character, Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, played by Laura Dern. She has purple hair and an elegant robe, but we’re not sure how she comes into play in this story. Will she end up clashing with Leia?

Hey, here’s another new character we don’t know much about. He’s referred to as DJ by director Rian Johnson and the crew, but he wouldn’t say why. It’s hard to tell what this location is, but Benicio del Toro is wearing a little hat, and I wonder if he’s playing a scoundrel sort of character ,not unlike Han Solo, albeit a little less smooth and maybe a little more mysterious.

Also, Lupita Nyong’o makes some kind of return in The Last JediĀ as Maz Kanata. We’re not sure who will cross paths with the bespectacled alien woman, or even what her role in the sequel will be, but maybe she’ll continue to push Rey in the right direction.

Star Wars The Last Jedi

As for Poe Dameron, he’s still in full hero mode. Here he is sliding across the surface of something, heading towards a tiny valley with ladders leading down into it. At first, I thought this was the surfaced of a ship, but upon closer inspection, that ground looks like it might be red, which indicates this could be from the new planet Crait. We saw this planet in The Last Jedi trailer as some ships sped across its surface, kicking up red soil as they flew towards a line of First Order walkers.
