Kathleen Kennedy, Rian Johnson and the cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi brought the first trailer to Star Wars Celebration to a room of ecstatic fans, and it truly brought down the house. So without further ado – click the play button above to check it out.
“I only know one truth.. its time for the Jedi.. to end”. Chilling.
Live streamed to the world, the energy from the Celebration panel was infectious. Hosted by Disney favourite Josh Gad, brought returning cast members Daisy Ridley, BB-8, John Boyega and Mark Hamill along with newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.
A few key points of information that came out of the panel:
- Kelly Marie Tran is playing a resistance fighter named Rose, a maintenance worker who gets taken along for the adventure. Rian Johnson was gushing over Kelly and her new character, so expect big things here!
- Daisy Ridley confirmed Rey is still (for the moment) just Rey, not Rey Skywalker, or Rey Kenobi
- John Boyega talked about Finn’s dilemma in this film – deciding whether he’s going to join the resistance, or continue running from the First Order.
- This amazing teaser poster:
If you have a spare hour and a half, I’d highly recommend checking out the panel – well hosted and filled with some amazing photos from Rian Johnson’s personal on set camera.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits Australian cinema’s on December 14.
