Star Wars: The Last Jedi to offer 'catharsis' for Carrie Fisher fans


In Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of 'The Force Awakens' join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.

John Boyega will reprise his role as Finn in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", and the actor has revealed new details about his character. The upper portions of their faces are cut off intentionally, giving more focus to the trademark details of each character such as Leia's ring, Rey's Jedi robe and lightsaber, Luke's lightsaber, Poe's Alliance Starbird symbol, Finn's Jacket, and Kylo Ren's cross guard lightsaber and scar.

The trailer was released on Saturday at Disney's latest D3 convention in Anaheim, California.

The director of "The Last Jedi", Rian Johnson, went to Skellig Michael with his cast in September 2015.

And sure, it's kind of a low blow to end the reel on a clip of Carrie Fisher talking about family, or interspersing her throughout the little video.

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi will be released in United Kingdom cinemas on December 14, 2017.

Given that one aspect of our jobs here at The A.V. Club is to watch pretty much everything that comes out around major film franchises and figure out, "Is this any good?", it's pretty easy to get jaded about the bigger ones.

A brand new behind the scenes video has been released with lots of exciting Star Wars scenes to mull over.
