The Last Jedi covers Entertainment Weekly’s Fall Movie Preview, and we’ve got a week of stories ahead of us as they ramp up the hype for the December film.
There’s a fresh leak of The Last Jedi publicity photos out in the wild. They look like unretouched studio shots, and we’ve seen the polished versions of a few already in the wild via book covers, toys and the like… I’d say the actual spoiler content here is mild at best, but they do confirm a few recent Making Star Wars reports.
Sadly, no porgs.
UPDATE: That didn’t last long!
Making Star Wars has some new info that is sure to launch (relaunch?) some new Snoke theories. It’s about his appearance, and backed up, for the most part, by recent Lego leaks.
Pablo Hidalgo’s been at Comic Con Chile this weekend, and it seems that some of his statements have been lost in translation/misquoted/overstated, particularly something about the status of a Luke and Leia reunion. io9 reached out and got him to clarify. (Mind, he’s not saying it doesn’t happen, just that they were speaking of the Vanity Fair photos.)
→ Rian Johnson’s comments on romance in The Last Jedi sent some tremors through the hopes of a few of the trilogy’s shipping communities. Vanity Fair writer David Kamp shares the full quote in context.
→ And finally, in spoiler corner, some Lego sets have leaked. They feature at least one newish vehicle, minifigs of Supreme Leader Snoke (which may confirm his new look,) Vice Admiral Holdo, a new(ish) variation of droid and a rank change for Poe. The images aren’t long for this world, but they are up at Imgur for the moment. (via)
Making Star Wars has a piece on Luke Skywalker’s gear in The Last Jedi – the items he has, what they may mean, and that it’s probably his glove we saw in the trailer.
