We're just a few days away from the biggest day on the geek news calendar in San Diego Comic-Con, but Disney is not willing to wait that long to get fans all frothing at the mouth.
IRELAND'S Wild Atlantic Way looks out of this world in a new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer that was released online yesterday. Her endlessly charismatic breakout performance in The Force Awakens (2015) made her a mega star, and we can't wait to see where her character goes from here.
Howevr, Disney and Lucasfilm apparently had another surprise in store for fans today besides that sizzle reel: a batch of brand new characters posters for The Last Jedi, spotlighting Rey, Finn, General Leia, and last but not least, Luke Skywalker. On Saturday, we got a look at some new footage from the upcoming film, including scenes featuring Fisher's Princess Leia, and clips of cast members sharing candid insights on the film.
Hamill, best known as Luke Skywalker in the "Star Wars" franchise, said he still thinks of Carrie Fisher like she is alive.
We have some scenes of Adam Driver and Daisy Ridley training, and some speculate that Kylo will be fighting against some Jedi in a flashback, and Rey will be going against the Knights of Ren. Oh those Mon Calamari!
"'The last Jedi' is tied up in [Luke and Rey's] story".
The major difference in terms of hardware is that HoloLens is a self-sufficient system, whereas Disney's "Star Wars: Jedi Challenges" will link up to a smartphone. New cast members will include Academy Award victor Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran as Rose.
