Rian Johnson and cast of The Last Jedi reveal secrets from the film


The director of Star Wars:  The Last Jedi, as well as some of its cast members, reveal secrets from the film…

We’re two weeks away from the December 15, worldwide premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and the cast and crew are out in force (pun intended) hitting the interview circuit.

In that regard, Kevin McCarthy — entertainment reporter for FOX 5 DC, WTTG-TV in Washington, D.C. — sat down with director Rian Johnson, as well as various cast members (including Daisy Ridley) and asked the serious questions. Like, for instance, what the first two words in The Last Jedi are. Check it out:

First off, let’s address McCarthy’s suit: It’s fabulous and should be required uniform dress for all Star Wars fans. Moving on, let’s get into the particulars of this lengthy, combined interview.

  • Daisy Ridley, while maneuvering through her portion of the interview like a seasoned veteran, does reveal that her’s and John Boyega’s accent aren’t necessarily connected to who they are.
  • John Boyega backs up this claim by telling Star Wars fans to move on because Rey’s accent isn’t part of her lineage (paraphrasing).
  • Rian Johnson reveals the first two words of Star Wars: The Last Jedi are, “We’re not.” You should draw your own speculations accordingly.

  • Laura Dern says Admiral Holdo’s pink/purple hair does have to do with her character.
  • Oscar Isaac says he and Rian Johnson talked about Poe Dameron, in which Johnson said, “Yeah, I don’t think that’s Poe.” Could be referring to the rumor that Poe Dameron might become the Saw Gerrera of The Last Jedi? Time will tell.
  • Andy Serkis reveals Snoke is around seven to eight feet tall and that he had to use stilts when walking around as his character.
  • Gwendoline Christie voiced her lines through her helmet. She also could not reveal if Phasma removes the helmet at any point in the film.
  • Kelly Marie Tran (Rose) says the use of practical puppets and props for characters was amazing. So much, in fact, that it made her cry at one point.

There you have it, folks. With just under two weeks to go until The Last Jedi hits theaters worldwide, expect more and more interviews, just like this one.
