The BBFC in the UK has listed a new trailer for The Last Jedi! It classified it PG and the running time is 1m31s, which means 30 seconds shorter than our first look at the movie back in April.
Now the question is, when will this trailer be released? We know there will be a Star Wars presence at D23 and most likely at SDCC too so it got to be at either one of these events. Both are taking place in July so it’s just in a few weeks away, we just have to be patient.
The Facebook page Templo Jedi Aztlan has revealed some leaked images revealing the design of new characters!
The first picture is one of Snoke’s Praetorian Guards, unlike the Emperor’s Royal Guards, it looks like these ones will get some action!
Then, we have a new First Order Trooper. It looks very much like one of the Executioner troopers Making Star Wars talked about except this one is red meaning he could be an officer.
The last two pictures give us a better look at the new First Order walker, it looks very much like a Gorilla and better armed than its predecessor the AT-AT, it has a big cannon! This new walker is called the AT-M6!
Vanity Fair has some more photos of aliens from a casino that we’ll see in The Last Jedi!
These new aliens are done in the same style as the ones from The Force Awakens, often very weird looking and in painted in the same colors with absolutely zero aliens from the six first movies. The costumes of the people of the Canto Bight Casino don’t look much like Star Wars. Some of them are good like the tall alien but for most of it there is something off and it seems it’s a flaw from TFA that The Last Jedi will be carrying again unlike what was done with Rogue One.
Vanity Fair revealed today their portfolio of photos Annie Leibovitz did, giving us a better look at The Last Jedi. Among these photos, we got our first look at the characters played by Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern.
Laura Dern is playing Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo. She’s all pink – hair and dress! It’s a simple look but I think it works and it reminds me of how the humans were dressed on Hosnian Prime in The Force Awakens. It’s a character I definitely want to know more about! She has a military rank so it says a little bit about what we can expect from her.
Benicio Del Toro is playing DJ, a mysterious character whose allegiance is unclear. I think this picture says it all and he doesn’t look like a character you can trust. I love the costume, it feels like Star Wars and it suits Del Toro perfectly!
Once again, it’s because of leaked images of Star Wars toys that we’re getting a first look at a new ship from The Last Jedi. With The Force Awakens, there had been leaks of figures that were our first look at different characters. This time, it’s Kylo Ren’s starfighter that has been revealed!
We see it from the back so we don’t know yet how it looks like from the front but the wings are reminiscent of the Imperial Tie Interceptor and the cockpit feels like it is a bit like Darth Vader’s Advanced Tie. For the colors, they are the same as the First Order Tie Fighters. It’s actually nice that Kylo is getting his own starfighter, he’ll be able to show his pilot skills!
It’s that time of the year again – it’s Star Wars day! May the Fourth be with you and I hope everyone is enjoying their day by celebrating our favorite saga!
The release date for Star Wars Episode IX has just been announced and it will be on May 24 2019! The movie is directed by Colin Trevorrow.
The Last Jedi is the last Star Wars movie to be released in December as next year, Han Solo will start reclaiming the May release date. Star Wars belongs there! Before The Force Awakens, Star Wars movies were released in May so ending the third trilogy on this date is a great choice and quite symbolic.
