The Last Jedi: In Poe Dameron, Leia Sees a Surrogate Son

Star Wars 8 Leia in crisis

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is out on December 15 and stars John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong'o, Gwendoline Christie, Dohmnall Gleeson, Mark Hamill, Andy Serkis and the late great Carrie Fisher.

The onus is still on keeping things largely spoiler-free, but through new images and reveals from the cast and crew, we now have a better idea of how Episode VIII is shaping up, just to get us even more hyped (if that's possible) for The Last Jedi. "It had to be something where Luke Skywalker believes he's doing the right thing - and the process of figuring out what that is and unpacking it is the journey for Rey". "I think Leia knows she won't be around forever and she, with tough love, wants to push Poe to be more than the badass pilot". That's the primary obstacle he has to rejoining the world and his place in the Jedi hierarchy, you know? He hasn't given away any spoilery bits on the film yet, but Johnson is really aiming at getting people excited for some background characters, who may or may not get featured at some point. However, Johnson told Entertainment Weekly that "watching [The Last Jedi], there's going to be a very emotional reaction to what she does in this movie".

Another difference Johnson distinguishes here is that Snoke's guards are essentially combat-ready soldiers, whereas the Emperor's guards were very statuesque and looked virtually useless in a fight.

"Poe's arc is one of evolving from a heroic soldier to a seasoned leader, to see beyond the single-mindedness of winning the battle to the larger picture of the future of the galaxy", Isaac continued. (It seemed like an eternity for this writer.) In that film, we know that Luke has trained Kylo Ren, the son of Han Solo and Leia Organa. In the piece, Oscar Issac shares on-set memories of waltzing with Fisher between takes while she sang old songs.

Alvarez refuted the allegations in a video posted on Facebook, saying "absolutely nothing happened". A spokesman from the president's office declined to comment on why the photo was deleted.

Details on Star Wars: The Last Jedi have flowed a little more steady recently. It's an ongoing war that will never end. It's now an opportunity for him to be the best he can be.

Benicio del Toro is staying in the Disney family, moving from the Marvel Cinematic Universe to a galaxy far, far away. She's not cool. She's this nobody, this background player, which is what makes her interesting.

Johnson has spoken with several major publications over these past two weeks, elaborating on a variety of topics relating to #TheLastJedi.
