Star Wars The Last Jedi Crait

When the Disneyland and Walt Disney World versions of Star Tours were refurbished and transformed into Star Tours: The Adventures Continue in 2010, the classic motion simulator ride became one of the most re-rideable attractions in the world. Instead of the same journey every time, you embarked on a randomly generated trip, with the ride stringing together a number of different locations and events. You never knew what you were going to get.

And since this is a ride where all of the details exist on a single screen and not giant sets, this also makes it easy to update. Case in point: the planet Crait, seen in the trailers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, will be added to the ride next month.

Laura Dern The Last Jedi

Laura Dern‘s Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo was nowhere to be found in the latest trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But before the Dern fanatics out there (and let’s face it – everyone should be a Dern fanatic) get too upset, it’s important to note the Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico and Benicio del Toro’s DJ were also nowhere to be seen in the new footage. When it comes to new characters, the latest chapter of the Skywalker saga is keeping its cards tucked close to its vest.

But if your Laura Dern sense just tingled, it’s because of a new image of the actress as the pink-haired Resistance leader has arrived online and you can check it out below.

Star Wars The Last Jedi 32

I love porgs. You love porgs. We all love porgs.

2017 is the year of the porg, a fact confirmed by Monday’s release of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, where we finally saw (and heard) the cherubic sea bird in action. The internet’s immediate and unabashed love of porgs is similar to the collective response to BB-8, who melted the icy cold hearts of jaded cynics the second he rolled across the Star Wars Celebration stage in April 2015. Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a tour-de-force for the ball droid, but will the porgs get a similar showcase in The Last Jedi?

We may already be in awe of their great big eyes and tiny little wings, but beyond their unabashed cuteness, what do we really know about porgs? Kind of a lot, actually! Here’s a brief but comprehensive run-down of every bit of porg intel we currently have.
