Who needs some adorable interneting by The Last Jedi cast? Let’s go to the tape.
Wired’s Autocomplete Interviews are always fun, and this one with some of The Last Jedi cast (Mark Hamill, Laura Dern, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, Daisy Ridley and Domhnall Gleeson) certainly delivers.
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.
There are a lot of interviews coming out from the junket and other apperances, and honestly at this point all I can do is point you towards the Tumblr. Some highlights include The Star Wars Show, the First Order folks interviewing each other , everyone’s favorite Snoke theories and basically everything with Laura Dern and Oscar Isaac. (Just… Laura Dern.) Oh, and Daisy Ridley’s clarification on that quote about leaving the franchise.
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…
A new featurette arrived today, a look at training for The Last Jedi featuring Daisy Ridley, Gwendoline Christie, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran and Adam Driver.
We got a pair of new commercials overnight. The first, which debuted during a Disney Christmas special, features some new Poe Dameron, BB-8 and Rey footage. The other commercial has a porg!
It was Mark Hamill’s turn on Good Morning America today, where he says his most important line in The Last Jedi is “This is not going to go the way you think.” Plus, a cameo from Sebastian Stan!
Coming up Friday night, Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Andy Serkis, Oscar Isaac, Laura Dern, Adam Driver, Gwen Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Domhnall Gleeson and director Rian Johnson – will all be on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.
In Time, Kelly Marie Tran and Laura Dern talk representation, plus an anecdote from Dern on Silent Running. (It starred her father and the robots in it are one of the inspirations for Artoo. )
Newsarama has the Storms of Crait #1 preview pages. The comic is set during the original trilogy and will give some background on the planet we’ll see in the movie. (Crait also appeared in the Claudia Gray novel Leia: Princess of Alderaan.)
Are there any stormtroopers in The Last Jedi that won’t be played by famous (yet unseen) faces? John Boyega apparently confirmed the persistent rumors that Prince William, Prince Harry, and Tom Hardy donned the white stuff for cameos in the same scene. Daniel Craig, what have you wrought?
Another new commercial has a few new snippets of Finn footage, plus some new dialogue from him. (And a bit of new blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Rey as well.) There’s also a new international trailer in Spanish, but it doesn’t feature any new footage.
There’s a whole slew of new stuff in the latest SciFiNow , and Tumblr MVP up. Sleemo has been tying them up. The main story, plus interviews with Mark Hamill, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley. Plus, from SFX, Kelly Marie Tran and producer Ram Bergman
