Star Wars The Last Jedi image 01

For the past few D23 Expos, Lucasfilm has had at least one Star Wars thing to show attendees. So following the success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Rogue One: A Star Wars: Story, everyone was eagerly awaiting to see some brand new footage from Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The Rian Johnson film has been on everyone’s minds since the first trailer popped up at Star Wars Celebration earlier this year. Many are wondering what the title means and if Luke really wants the Jedi Order to end. At the D23 today, the Lucasfilm portion of the live-action panel provided some answers. Check them out below.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Filmmakers Talk Title’s Meaning
eelyajekiM   |  

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

In the past week, we’ve seen a handful of new images of the cast in costume and learned a lot about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. From new characters and locations to motivations and drives, the film is setting itself up to be one of the most exciting of 2017. But as much as we learned about the film this week, there’s more information coming out.

One of the things everyone is dying to know is the meaning of the title. As Luke Skywalker so ominously put it towards the end of the first trailer, “It’s time to bring the Jedi to an end.” Is he referring to himself, to Rey, or the entire Order? It’s not likely we’ll get answers, but director Rian Johnson and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy can provide vague answers. More on the story below.

Video: Josh Gad and Judi Dench Try To Get ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Answers From Daisy Ridley

Star Wars: The Force Awakens 06

Josh Gad just doesn’t know when to quit. In his third attempt, in just as many weeks, the actor has tried to get answers out of Daisy Ridley regarding his questions about Star Wars: The Last Jedi. While we still don’t know whether or not Finn is paralyzed from the waist down or who are Rey’s parents, everyone has been dying to know what is the meaning behind the title The Last Jedi.

His first and second attempts proved unsuccessful when going at it alone. So this time, things are different. This time he gets his Murder On The Orient Express co-star Dame Judi Dench to pry answers out of the actress who plays Rey. Check out the video below.

Video: Josh Gad Tries Tricking Daisy Ridley Into Spilling ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Secrets

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Remember how Josh Gad tried to figure out what Star Wars: The Last Jedi meant by grilling Daisy Ridley for answers?

The two star together in Kenneth Branagh’s remake of Murder On The Orient Express, and it appears that Gad has continued to pester Ridley about the title while off the set. He wasn’t able to get an answer directly, but maybe if he sneaks the question in there he might get Ridley to slip up. Of course, we should all know how this video ends. But that doesn’t make the exchange any less entertaining. Check out the video below.

Video: Josh Gad Tries To Get ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Scoop From Daisy Ridley

Star Wars: Episode VIII header image

Since the official title for Rian Johnson‘s Star Wars: The Last Jedi was announced earlier this week, many have been speculating whether or not the “Jedi” in the title was plural or singular. Does it mean Rey or Luke Skywalker are the last of the Jedi, or is one of them literally “The Last Jedi.” The debate will probably carry on well into the days leading up to the film’s release. You don’t really expect the film to explain the title and spoil everything in the trailer, do you?

While we speculate and try to find out answers from various members of the cast in other press events, Josh Gad had something else in mind. Using whatever pull he has as the voice of Olaf in Frozen, he decided to ask Daisy Ridley, herself, the meaning behind The Last Jedi. As you might guess, he doesn’t get the answer, but the exchange itself is quite hilarious. Check out the video below.

‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ May Introduce New Stormtroopers

Star Wars: The Force Awakens FN-2999 (TR-8R)

Star Wars: The Force Awakens made some key changes to the dark faction we once knew as The Empire. Now known as the First Order, the group also added a few changes to the stormtroopers’ armor and weaponry and even gave a few high ranking ones a shiny chrome look.

Now it looks like we will be seeing more variations of the stormtrooper in the yet-to-be-titled Star Wars: Episode VIII. According to new rumors, a new never before seen stormtrooper will appear in the movie, but will still retain some similarities. Check out the full details on this rumor below.

Lupita Nyong’o Has Yet To Shoot Her Scenes For ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’

Star Wars The Force Awakens Maz Kanata

There were many new and exciting characters that were introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and while many of them we still have yet to figure out, the one that is perhaps the most mysterious is Maz Kanata. Played by Lupita Nyong’o,, Maz is no ordinary 1,000-year-old barkeep; she is a wise alien who seems to have a strong connection to the mystical side of the galaxy.

Certainly, the lack of knowing the character’s history within the Star Wars universe would be enough to have her come back for Star Wars: Episode VIII, and there has been some indication that she would, in fact, be making a return. However, Nyong’o is now saying that she hasn’t even shot her scenes yet. More on the story below.

‘Star Wars: Episode VIII’ Release Pushed Back Seven Months To December 2017

Star Wars: Episode VIII Delayed

Scheduling changes for films come as no surprise in the industry. As we have seen when Star Wars: The Force Awakens announced that it would open on December 18, 2015, studios rescheduled the release of some of their tentpole films to an earlier or later date. Given the huge box office success that The Force Awakens has become, it makes sense that Disney would want to release more Star Wars films in the month of December.

Originally scheduled for a May 26, 2017 release, it should come as no surprise that the Rian Johnson-directed Star Wars: Episode VIII has now been pushed back to a December 2017 release. Check out what other movies are affected by this change after the jump.
