The Last Jedi Blu-ray will have over two hours of extra footage, per the Star Wars Movies page on Facebook. Best Buy will have two exclusive Steelbook versions (regular and 4K Ultra,) while Target’s will come with a 40-page booklet.
At IGN, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson explains why Luke Skywalker appeared the way he did on Crait, why he used Anakin’s lightsaber, and why that clue didn’t register with Kylo.
Andi Gutierrez sits down with the Lucasfilm Story Group’s Leland Chee, Pablo Hidalgo, Matt Martin, and Rayne Roberts to shed some light on The Last Jedi.
In an interview regarding his Oscar chances this year, composer John Williams says that he’s already told J.J. Abrams that he’ll return for Episode IX. “I would very much like to complete that,” he told Variety.
Williams is eligible for both The Last Jedi and The Post this year. He’s received 50 nominations over his career and won 5, including one for the original Star Wars.
Before IX, Williams will be contributing a theme for Solo.
With The Last Jedi out, it “won’t be long” until we see a Solo trailer, director Ron Howard tweeted to a curious fan Monday.
We have yet to have a first trailer for a new Star Wars movie show up unannounced (at least not without a Celebration or other major event in play,) so we can expect a heads-up a day or so before it drops.
Here’s one of those sentences no one ever dreamed of typing: The Wall Street Journal is covering Kylo Ren’s high-waisted pants, complete with one of their classic stipple portraits. (And an official still from Lucasfilm. No more need for fuzzy pirated screenshots!)
It’s mostly about the #KyloRenChallenge meme, but we do get word from from the film’s costume designer:
“The world of Star Wars is not our world,” Michael Kaplan, costume designer for “The Last Jedi,” wrote in an email. “Kylo Ren is not some hipster in hip-hugging jeans. Think Errol Flynn swashbuckling coolness as a point of departure. Hide that navel!”
We get something of the history of high-waisted pants, and a Bruce Lee shoutout as well. I guess Kylo finally gets one up on grandpa Anakin in at least one area: His waistband.
Donald Glover was at the Television Critics Association for his show Atlanta, and naturally that means Solo questions. He talked about something Ron Howard shot with him as Lando Calrissian, discussed the director drama, and confirmed that capes are in play. (Surprise! Or not.)
Rian Johnson and editor Bob Ducsay talk about one of The Last Jedi’s most controversial choices – Luke Skywalker’s arc in the movie and how it led to his last scene.
