As a surprise to Star Wars fans at the D23 Expo 2017, they were treated to a behind-the-scenes reel of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” after the cast took the stage during the live-action panel of D23. Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Gwendolyn Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, Benecio Del Toro, and director Rian Johnson were on stage before the BTS reel was debuted.
Before the BTS reel, Rian Johnson told the audience, “This is my first D23 Expo, but not my first time working for Disney. I used to work for the Disney Channel.” Johnson and the group then went on to talk about the making of “The Last Jedi” while production photos were shown. According to Mark Hamill, when he read the script, “there were so many unexpected elements. This is a real game-changer.” Chairman Alan Horn said, “We were all stunned and shocked when Carrie Fisher passed away, and the audience will appreciate her performance in The Last Jedi.”
A production photo of Laura Dern’s character was seen holding a blaster in the fog and she confessed that she said “pew pew” when she had the blaster on set. Also, a photo of Rose, played by Kelly Marie Tran, was shown in a First Order Uniform.
Oh and the Star Wars Twitter just dropped this stunning poster.
And John Boyega dropped this poster on his Twitter.
Mark Hamill posted his poster on his Twitter.
