The Last Jedi: New pictures, costumes, nonexistent toy ‘spoilers’

Lucasfilm has released a new batch of images from The Last Jedi. None of them are new, exactly – they’ve all debuted in various publications – but it’s nice to get these out and about sans watermarks and crops. Check them all out at our Facebook.

→ Did Topps show us Luke Skywalker’s final costume? It’s not really much of a departure from what we’ve already seen him in, but since when has that ever stopped anything?

Don’t get too excited about things floasting around that ID a mini-Lego hologram that comes with Snoke as a character who’s not at all confirmed to be in this trilogy. Remember Finn Calrissian? And speaking of Topps and Snoke, they also give us our first official look at him.

→ More Snoke: Andy Serkis on who he didn’t have scenes with in The Last Jedi.

→ Shockingly, Domhnall Gleeson won’t commit to being around for IX. Okay, not that shockingly.

Lucasfilm’s Last Jedi promotional partners includes… Louboutin?

Lucasfilm has annouced some of their promotional partners for The Last Jedi, and they include some unsurprising names – Nissan, Verizon, General Mills. The real surprise? Christian Louboutin, which is best-known for their distinctive red-soled high heels. But they do have have a beauty line now that they’re playing up in the press release.

But speaking of beauty, Cargo Cosmetics will be debuting a Star Wars line for the holidays. It’ll debut in Kohl’s stores next month.

We can probably expect to hear about more partners and products in the coming weeks.

The Last Jedi novelization won’t be out until March

The Last Jedi novelization by Jason Fry has been scheduled for a March 6, 2018 release in both hardcover and eBook. This is a bit of a departure from the novelizations for The Force Awakens and Rogue One, both of which came out as eBooks on the film release dates, followed by a hardcover a few weeks later. Maybe the rush wasn’t worth the result?

The Last Jedi will be in theaters December 15, 2017.

Despite the two-pronged release, The Force Awakens novelization managed to become the first Star Wars novel to hit #1 on the New York Times bestseller list in several years.
