Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been the most secretive of any of the Disney-era films yet, with nary a leak out there aside from those spun off of the teaser trailer (click here to watch) released four months ago. I can’t help but think that we’re on the cusp of getting the full trailer as we’re now only four months away from the opening of the next Saga film. Entertainment Weekly’s fall preview issue features two covers for The Last Jedi (still keeping people wondering whether the title refers to Luke or Rey, though Hamill has said it refers to Luke). The captions provide some interesting details, but the most awesome pic has to be Snoke’s Praetorian Guard, an upgraded look on Palpatine’s Imperial Guard. Snoke may be a new character, but everything about The First Order seems like an upgrade or an evolution from The Empire, so there is a connection somewhere. Take a look at these full slew of images and begin to speculate. It’s not too far now. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi opens December 15, 2017.

Much as they did last year with Rogue One, Disney has released a behind-the-scenes reel for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi at its annual D23 expo. It’s the kind of reel where you’re going to have to imagine the possibilities, because-just as they have all along-the reel gives nothing away plotwise….except to warn us again that Rian Johnson’s story is going to turn everything we know about Star Wars on its head. If it were pretty much anyone but Rian Johnson writing this, that constant message would have me a little worried. It’s a very cool look at a film we still know next to nothing about with a touching finish from the late Carrie Fisher. No news yet on Han Solo, other than that Ron Howard has taken over and things are apparently still proceeding toward the planned May 2018 release.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper) and continues the storylines introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, welcoming back cast members Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Domhnall Gleeson as Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, and Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke. New cast members will include Academy Award winner Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran as Rose.
The sequel is produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman and executive produced by J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski. Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in regular and IMAX theaters on December 15, 2017.
The original Star Wars Battlefront games had single player modes that were integral to the enjoyment of the game, and DICE made a big mistake omitting a campaign from its revival of the franchise. Normally video game trailers don’t come on the site until launch, but we are all Star Wars geeks, and Star Wars video games are canon now (the first Battlefront is how the brought back Boba Fett post ROTJ). This campaign reveal looks amazingly epic, spanning the destruction of the second Death Star to the rise of The First Order. I was not pleased with the multiplayer-only first installment, but this trailer has me changing my mind. Read more below from Coming Soon for all the details.

Having watched it about ten times now, the first teaser for The Last Jedi is a decidedly different roll out than either The Force Awakens or Rogue One got. It’s definitely a teaser; not a full trailer and still gives very little away on plot, but what it does give is pretty jaw-dropping. It looks like Luke did indeed find the first Jedi Temple, and agrees to train Rey (remember, this film will pick up exactly where Episode VII ended). Kylo Ren/Ben Solo is on the teaser poster sporting a new scar courtesy of Rey and it looks like he’s ditched the helmet (what would grandfather think?). Aside from that, the shots are very cryptic; new ships, Finn still recovering, a brief look at the new Super AT-ATs, but the shocker is the end of the teaser and Luke’s opinion of the Jedi. Far from restarting the order, Luke says, “It’s time for the Jedi….to end.” Stills from the trailer and more speculation below.
