Star Wars The Last Jedi Finn vs Captain Phasma

Star Wars is entering a new age within its own legacy. These new films have become much more diverse in characters and in tone since being acquired by Disney. With Star Wars: The Last Jedi just a few weeks away from release, director Rian Johnson was tasked with continuing J.J. Abrams’ The Force Awakens story. While it may sound like he was confined to a certain narrative, Johnson never forgot that this ultimately was a Star Wars movie.

Geeks of Doom had a chance to sit down with their fellow journalists to talk to the director and cast about the upcoming film, how it may differ from The Force Awakens and other sequels in general, and how making it has impacted their lives. Check out that they had to say below, along with some images from the press junket.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The last two Star Wars films have set the December weekend opening box office number bar high. Both The Force Awakens and Rogue One had record-breaking numbers and exceeded all expectations.

Still, it should come as no surprise that Star Wars: The Last Jedi has high expectations. And when I say high, I mean high. According to the latest projections, the sequel is on track to earn $200 million in its opening weekend. More on the story below.

Those cute and cuddly porgs may be the thing that everyone is excited about, but they aren’t the only creatures we will be seeing in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. There are also those mysterious crystal foxes, which have gone virtually unnamed since we first saw them in the second trailer.

But in EW’s week-long coverage of the highly anticipated Star Wars film, we are learning more about these foxes. They actually serve a purpose other than to look cool or hope that they are real and can be domesticated. Check out what their name is and how they will be the light to guide our heroes below.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi header

Earlier this week, we got to see a handful of new photos for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and we learned quite a few things about it. Among those things is that there will be some infighting within the Resistance. The events of The Force Awakens have left the faction broken and scattered across the cosmos, and it will be up to General Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Admiral Holdo (Laura Dern) to put the pieces back together.

However, those same images are teasing the idea that Leia could pass down her power of leadership to Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), the Resistance’s ace pilot, and it appears that he and Holdo have very different ways of bringing an end to the war between themselves and the First Order. Find out more about Holdo’s role in the film in the full story below.

Star Wars Stormtroopers: Beyond The Armor
Star Wars: Journey To Star Wars: The Last Jedi
Hardcover | Kindle
By Ryder Windham & Adam Bray
Foreword by John Boyega
Publisher: Harper Design | HarperCollins
Release date: October 24, 2017

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away, some of the greatest and most unique characters in the history of motion pictures were created by George Lucas for Star Wars. Their names are part of Americana, engrained in zeitgeist forever. Luke, Vader, Han, Leia, Yoda, Boba Fett… the list goes on and on. We met aliens from across the universe, droids of all shapes and sizes, and a giant lovable walking furball named Chewbacca. From May 1977 all the way till December 2015, there was one group of Star Wars characters that remained an interchangeable array of white body armor, bulky helmets, and blasters guaranteed to miss every time. They were the Stormtroopers. Now as you prepare for Star Wars: The Last Jedi this Winter, tide over the Star Wars superfan in your family with the ultimate behind the scenes guide to Star Wars forgotten masses with Star Wars Stormtroopers: Beyond the Armor, published by Harper Design.

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’: Finn Just Can’t Get Out Of The Resistance

Star Wars The Last Jedi image 07

Finn (John Boyega) is the reluctant hero of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. While he may know right from wrong, he doesn’t exactly want to be in the heat of battle. But when the time calls for it, he will fight until the bitter end. So even though he had a chance to escape to the Outer Rim, he chose to join The Resistance on their mission to bring down the Starkiller Base and rescue Rey (Daisy Ridley) from Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

And even though he showed his grit and valor against Kylo Ren, he was soundly defeated. However, Rey was still able to rescue him, and had to leave the comatose hero to go find Luke. So while Finn was bound to wake up from his coma, it appears that there are still a few scars.

Some new Star Wars: The Last Jedi photos have been released, and we are learning a lot more about Finn’s trauma and how he cannot escape fighting for The Resistance. Check it out here below.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Image

The scarce amount of Star Wars: The Last Jedi material out there is leaving fans begging for anything that looks new. Of course, the last thing we saw came from a behind-the-scenes video at the D23 EXPO. Since then, there hasn’t been much to feed off of. Until now.

A bunch of new photos are included in Entertainment Weekly’s Fall Movie preview issue and with it some new plot details on the film. Because we all know how important it is to keep the future of Star Wars vague. Check out the new photos plus how our favorite characters have changed since The Force Awakens, below.

Snoke Star Wars The Force Awakens

When we last saw Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, he ordered General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) to go fetch Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) so that he may train him in the Dark Side of the Force. At the time, we only saw him in a holographic form, leaving his true look a mystery. But Star Wars: The Last Jedi will give us a first look at the real Snoke, and Praetorian Guard, the royal guard who are assigned to protect him. More on the story below, along with new images from the upcoming film.
