“You wouldn’t believe some of the Legends characters that will be cropping up in various media in the coming months,” the Lucasfilm story group’s Leland Chee said in response to a Twitter query. “Hey, if Tag & Bink can show up, ANYthing is possible.”
In this week’s returning Star Wars Show, Rian Johnson and Jason Fry tease additional scenes that made The Last Jedi novelization – including a glimpse at the footage of one that was cut from the film. The book will be out on in hardcover and eBook on March 6.
Despite some faint hopes, there were no real Star Wars surprises in the Oscar nominations. The Last Jedi is up for four: Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual Effects and an Original Score nod for John Williams, his 51st.
Director Rian Johnson shared a video of Williams conducting the movie’s opening fanfare:
Some sad, scared little men edited almost all the women out of The Last Jedi. Their version is 46 minutes long, less than half the actual running length, cutting out most of Holdo, nearly all of Rose’s lines, and of course Luke milking the thala-siren. (No boobs allowed!) But the best part? The reaction of the actual men involved in the movie.
In their 2018 media kit, Disney released a synopsis (but no photo) for Solo: A Star Wars Story:
Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
Solo: A Star Wars Story releases in U.S. theaters on May 25, 2018.
