"Sadly, Carrie will not be in [Episode] IX", Kennedy told ABC News from the Star Wars Celebration, where the trailer for Episode VIII: The Last Jedi debuted. Josh Gad hosted the event. Variety reported yesterday that despite expectations, Carrie Fisher won't be in that episode.
And the film's title, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", isn't exactly reassuring, either. In the trailer of this film, we see Daisy Ridley's Rey in Jedi training. We are here to help you take a closer look at the trailer and go over everything we learned about Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the panel. "[The process was] stream of consciousness, jazz poetry ad-lib sessions". "It's hard when you meet your heroes because it might not be what you expect". "Rian, I think, had more room to kind of do his thing".
If you check out the trailer at about the 53/4 second mark, you'll hear whispers of a seduction to the Dark Side, set against the backdrop of Kylo Ren's smouldering ruined helmet. It's been a process. General Leia Organa's Resistance has cost a certain amount to the First Order and those Imperial continue to remain a threat under the command of General Hux, and the enigmatic Supreme Leader Snoke. (Todd Fisher) was probably confused because we finished everything in Eight, and Carrie is absolutely phenomenal in the movie.
Fans had been lining up on the sidewalk overnight to get into the event, hosted by "Frozen" actor Josh Gad and featuring Ridley, Boyega, Johnson, Hamill and Kennedy.
Hamill on the mystery of Luke: "In 7, you discover Luke obviously as a hermit on this island". She made every celebration so much fun. The line seems promising more complex Luke and certainly more complex storyline. Johnson said her character embodies the notion that even the most unlikely person can step up and become a hero. "You have to fill in the story". He also writes as beautifully as he directs, which is quite incredible. That part of the story has some room to expand if Lucasfilm wants to leave Star Wars 9 as the final word, chronologically speaking.
