Today in The Last Jedi: Who’s ready to jump in an X-wing and blow stuff up?

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.

There were also two big image reveals today: A new picture of Laura Dern as Amilyn Holdo came as part of a quick profile in Elle, and the IMAX poster in USA Today.

And here are few things going back a bit, since I was more or less AFK last week…

→ Also in Elle, Daisy Ridley has the cover of the UK version, where she talks about Carrie Fisher, missing buddy John Boyega and Barbara Streisand. Plus, lots of pictures.

→ Expanding the fashion choices a bit, Rag and Bone will have a limited-edition Star Wars line. A number of these pieces are a great deal more subtle than the usual offerings, which fills a more high-fashion niche that’s been rather lacking. (Even the actual high fashion we’ve seen has been less than subtle.)

→ We have Carrie Fisher to thank for all The Last Jedi‘s space jewelry, Rian Johnson admits.
