Star Wars: The Last Jedi Will Not Focus On Any Epic Romances

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Will Not Focus On Any Epic Romances

The new Vanity Fair Star Wars issue is packed with sneak peaks, images and some incredible anecdotes from the making of The Last Jedi. Fisher's character, Princess Leia, has been a beloved part of the series since the beginning, and it's hard to imagine the films without her.

The weapon, which "doesn't have a fancy name yet" seems to be less high tech than the usual blasters and lightsaber the Star Wars universe usually brings and instead comes in the form of a collapsible pole. While he starts the movie in a coma and then recovering from his serious injuries, Finn spends much of the movie in an undisclosed quest with Resistance mechanic Rose Tico, played by Kelly Marie Tran. "The minute she finished, she grabbed me and said, 'I'd better be at the forefront of IX!'" Kennedy remembers. Laura Dern's haracter is called Vice Admiral Holdo, "a prominent officer in the Resistance".

The 65-year-old observed: "When I read the script for Episode VIII, I went, 'Oh my God, we're going back?' Because I said I was never going back".

Rose and Finn (John Boyega) will travel to a casino city called Canto Bight, which Johnson described as "a Star Wars Monte Carlo-type environment, a little James Bond-ish, a little To Catch a Thief".
