Mark Hamill: Carrie Fisher Star Wars tribute is 'therapy'

16 April, 2017, 00:38 | Author: Courtney Perry

"The Last Jedi" picks off where "The Force Awakens" left off, with Rey (Ridley) meeting Luke on a remote island, filmed off the coast of Ireland. Perhaps the teaser trailer revealed this weekend can begin answering that question.

Davis will be playing Rukh, the assassin bodyguard of Grand Admiral Thrawn, and a popular character from Star Wars Legends (the former Expanded Universe).

Some of the secrets shared by The Last Jedi panel members include the introduction of a new character, Finn's faith and The First Order's next evil move against the Rebel Resistant fighters. "She was imperfect in many ways but her imperfections and willingness to speak about them are what made her more than perfect".

The movie poster shows Rey on an intense red background pointing her light saber skyward, the beam dividing images of Skywalker and Kylo Ren. The one shadowy frame of him we see indicates Luke may believe originally he is the last Jedi and no hope exists for the Force in the galaxy. In the trailer we see Hera and Kanan more obviously in a relationship, the return of the Mandalorian Bo-Katan, more #HotKallus, X-Wings finally debuting, and Hera saying, "May the Force Be With You", to close it out. The first looks like it could be a flashback to when Kylo Ren turned against him and destroyed the new Jedi Academy. "It was important for us to tell a new authentic story, one that gives players a brand-new perspective". The First Order are jumping on that in the beginning of our movie.

Just the overall tone of the teaser suggests a more somber and contemplative mood to this sequel to the "Star Wars" franchise, in the same vein that the "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back" story covered the darker times of the original trilogy.

The announcement was met with groans throughout the ballroom, as crushed fans grappled with the news after almost an hour of getting excited for what the future held.

Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the sci-fi blockbusters, shared another snap of himself and Ford with Billie on Twitter.
