Laura Dern and Oscar Isaac weigh in on Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo’s role in The Last Jedi, and how even her look plays into it:
“I think it’s beautifully subversive,” Dern says of Holdo’s military glamour. “From the director to the producers, everyone was painstaking about not only the look, but even the exact color of hair, what it should be and trying different versions. And all I know is I think it’s so cool. I love the way she looks. I want to be Holdo for Halloween.”
Entertainment Weekly is back with their latests news dump for The Last Jedi. The cover reveal story sheds some light on Laura Dern’s Amilyn Holdo and her role in the Resistance; The obligatory gallery features several new quotes and photos.
On Kylo Ren and Rey, and where that dynamic is going. (Plus some interesting stuff on why Ben might have turned.)
Coming up tomorrow: Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran, and crystal foxes.
The surprise new stop on Star Tours has been revealed, and it’s Batuu. The new planet will serve as the setting for the upcoming Star Wars land, Galaxy’s Edge, that will debut in 2019 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Florida and Disneyland in California.
New footage spotted! A brief look at Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico in action is a highlight of a spot for EDF Energy (okay…), while General Organa and Poe have a great exchange in a new commercial. (Another recent spot features new Finn footage!)
There’s also a great profile of Tran at Buzzfeed which is definitely worth a read. She talks about her background, Harry Potter, and Carrie Fisher in the gym. She teases that Rose has “has an interesting relationship with war.” She’s also one of The Hollywood Reporter’s Next Gen Talent picks.
Just ahead of the trailer (SOON,) we get the theatrical poster reveal. Head under the cut for the whole thing.
Entertainment Weekly’s second day on The Last Jedi brings a look at Leia, Poe and the new-isolated Resistance, including Laura Dern’s mysterious Vice Admiral Holdo.
We also learn that Benicio Del Toro’s DJ is a “codebreaker” – aka a slicer. Did that term make the Legends cut-off? We’ll see soon.
Tomorrow, more on Rey.
It’s here! The behind-the-scenes reel for The Last Jedi gives us a peek at the production, and a LOT of new things, or at least, things we’ve heard about…
