Now that The Last Jedi is officially out and about, the crew and cast can address some of the choices made in the film. Entertainment Weekly has the details from a post-screening Q&A at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
We may not get an extensive behind-the-scenes book on the making of any of the new Star Wars movies for decades, if at all, but at least we’ll get something for The Last Jedi: Writer/director Rian Johnson told /Film that Lucasfilm is planning to release a book of his great black-and-white set photos.

The charity auction for the custom Louboutins has begin. (Currently in the lead is the Amilyn, for $9,500, followed by Rey, Rose and Phasma.)

The Last Jedi press conference (and junket) was held on Sunday, and while it was low on news, an official video has now been released so you can comb through it for details on your specific foci. It had fun moments, but you can feel the exhaustion pouring off all these poor people. Moderated by Entertainment Weekly’s Anthony Breznican, it features Rian Johnson, Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, Gwendoline Christie, Domhnall Gleeson and Andy Serkis.
Jimmy Kimmel Live was almost all Star Wars last night. As expected, it was low on revelations, but Rian Johnson did reveal the first word of the film, and we spotted a couple of familiar faces in the audience…
