The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson appeared on the Empire Podcast Spoiler Special to talk about the movie. It’s two hours long, so for those of us who prefer to read or are all podcasted-out for the day, Empire has helpfully written up some of the highlights. They include more about Luke and Kylo, broom boy, new Force powers, and the Rey/Kylo connection, but I’m sure there’s plenty more on the podcast.
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.
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.
And now that we’ve all had a chance to take the movie in, the behind-the-scenes stuff has started flowing in… There are several Rian Johnson interviews out and about, with the best perhaps being at the Los Angeles Times. There he talks about introducing new Force powers, Rey and Kylo, and the whole purpose of the shirtless scene. Also: Business Insider, a Variety podcast and The Director’s Cut podcast.
Rian Johnson tells Collider about some of The Last Jedi’s deleted scenes, including a chunk from Rose and Finn’s storyline, and another featuring Rey and Luke. He says all the major ones will be on the Blu-ray. (I’m just guessing re: the photo above, but hey… We didn’t see that in the movie, did we?)
A new commercial features a new line from Kylo Ren and a surprising new clip of Rey. Continue reading “New The Last Jedi commercials: “Let’s finish this,” “watch your language!””
