SWCO: The Last Jedi teaser debut, first details on Kelly Marie Tran’s character


It’s here, and boy are we going to be arguing about this one. Looks like we’re going deep into the Jedi issue, and Luke’s (understandably) reluctant to train Rey. Or has he discovered a new way? During the panel, Daisy Ridley implied that “meeting your heroes” often means you won’t find them to be as you might expect.

The metaphysical debate will have to wait – though it’s being acted out all over the OCCC right now – and let’s get down to some actual info.

This nifty teaser poster was handed out:

    Looks a lot like The Empire Strikes Back to me. Reclusive Jedi Master training a new hope? Check. Casino planet (cloud city)? Check. Battle against walkers on a white planet? Check.
    I have a very bad feeling about this.

      Reminds me of that video comparing old Disney animation and how often they recycled the same scenes. I bet we’ll see a twist with the revelation of someone’s parents, and hopefully someone loses a limb or gets stuffed into a dead animal. I definitely won’t watch it and love it anyway.
