The unexpected death of actress Carrie Fisher past year necessitated her exit from the “Star Wars” saga, and while fans will have to wait until the release of “The Last Jedi” to see how the rebel princess says goodbye, the cast and creative team are promising that it’s a fitting, emotional tribute to both the character and the actress. He must know the galaxy needs him.
Rey, actress Daisy Ridley says, begins The Last Jedi “so hopeful to everything”. And since they’re refusing to tell us his real name, there are definitely more secrets to DJ that we’ll need to uncover when the film is released.
While the galaxy teeters on takeover by the First Order, Leia is also dealing with personal grief, mourning the death of Han Solo – murdered at the hands of their son, Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren.
There’s nothing that gets me going quite like a few Star Wars: The Last Jedi images, and today my source of pornography is Entertainment Weekly. “Also speaking to EW, the actor revealed her character’s thought process soon after meeting Skywalker: “‘Oh my God, this other man that I lost within a couple days was somewhat of a father figure. “Believe me, you’re going to see lots of conflict in The Last Jedi”. Nearly fully armed and operational, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is heating up ahead of its upcoming release with a new marketing blitz in our corner of a galaxy not so far away. Newcomer Kelly Marie Tran, who plays Rose, says that her brand new character will be in complete awe of the famous Finn. “He has to make a decision, and Rose is there to help him make that choice”, he says. She’s not the best. Their partnership sounds like it’ll be one of the highlights of the movie, especially as the two head to, as director Rian Johnson describes, “The casino metropolis of Canto Bight on the world of Cantonica”. In this game, the player character, a former Jedi, comes across a series of people who just don’t care about the lengthy history of wars between the Jedi and the Sith – they’re out for personal survival, and that means ignoring the big galactic politics and the war between good and evil. It’s still not clear if “DJ” is the actual name of the character in the film, but it seems like he’s an important part of Finn and Rose’s mission to infiltrate the First Order. Even after these official, Lucasfilm-approved reveals, we still don’t fully know the scope of how this character will factor in to the new movie. The Last Jedi will mark the last on-screen appearance of Carrie Fisher’s strong female protagonist.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15.
