Star Wars The Last Jedi 32

The very exciting new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi took the internet by storm last night, thrilling some, disappointing others, and giving everyone more of what they really crave: Porgs! While the new trailer gave us some fresh looks at the new film, much of what happens in The Last Jedi is still shrouded in secrecy. And that’s by design. In a new interview, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson gives thoughts on Star Wars spoilers, working with Carrie Fisher, and of course, Porgs. Get the details on Star Wars spoilers (and Porgs!) below.

Carrie Fisher The Last Jedi

In the Star Wars: The Last Jedi behind-the-scenes sizzle reel that debuted at this year’s D23 Expo, Carrie Fisher said the upcoming sequel is powerful because “it’s about family.” Sadly, her words have taken on a whole new meaning in the wake of her sudden death at the end of last year: it will now be about watching the final time this actress – who, for many fans, has felt like a part of their pop culture family for 30 years – steps into the role of Princess-turned-General Leia, one of the most iconic sci-fi heroes ever conceived.

In Entertainment Weekly’s latest barrage of Star Wars news, there’s a story about the bond Leia shares with Oscar Isaac‘s Resistance pilot Poe Dameron, her impact on his growth as a leader, and the vulnerable place we find the Resistance at the start of the new film.

Carrie Fisher‘s untimely death was a blow to fans in this world and in a galaxy far, far away.

It was most of all a blow to the cast and crew of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which would inadvertently be Fisher’s last onscreen appearance as Princess, now General, Leia.

While Star Wars Episode 9 will have to deal with Leia’s absence, The Last Jedi will at least offer a way for us to say goodbye to Fisher.

carrie fisher in episode 9

The tragic and unexpected death of Carrie Fisher had many wondering about the future of the Star Wars movies, notably Star Wars Episode 9, the film after Fisher’s last appearance in Star Wars Episode: The Last Jedi, and in which her character General Leia was intended to return.

The loss of Fisher weighs heavily on Episode 9 director Colin Trevorrow, who opened up on how the Star Wars sequel is moving on without her, and how they will pay respects to the princess, who became a general, who became a legend.
