Hey, the big Star Wars Battlefront 2 reveal is this afternoon at Star Wars Celebration 2017 (2:30 p.m. ET to be exact). The last line is Luke Skywalker's and it's a doozy: "I only know one truth: it's time for the Jedi to end". Several points during the 40th Anniversary and The Last Jedi panels focused on Carrie's work on the films.
If we get all the answers in The Last Jedi, this might actually parallel the original trilogy in a way that all the answers are given to us in the second movie.
Even though there is much happiness and joy coming from Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, there is no denying there has been a tinge of sadness hanging over this year's proceedings, because of the recent death of our beloved Princess Leia Organa, the legendary Carrie Fisher. "I'm still not thinking of her in the past tense", Hamill admitted, saying that each time he thinks he's made it through every stage of grief, he circles right back to anger - about how quickly she went, how she shouldn't be gone, and how we never got to give her a proper goodbye. Recently, there's been some debate over the meaning of "The Last Jedi", despite the opening crawl and dialogue from The Force Awakens specifically naming Luke Skywalker as "the last Jedi".
Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy later revealed that Fisher would not appear in the as-yet untitled ninth episode, due for release in 2019. She's a brilliant writer, an incredible mind.
"We'd have these stream-of-consciousness jazz poetry ad-lib sessions and I would just scribble on my script everything she said". Kennedy told ABC News Friday that Fisher, who died in December, will not appear in the planned ninth "Star Wars" film. "I promise to come to you".
The actor said he had admitted to Johnson that trying to capture "lightning in a bottle" again was a prospect that "terrified" him - and he was relieved to find the director felt the same way.
The thing with fan theories is, I love reading them, but I'm always praying that they aren't true.
