New Star Wars: The Last Jedi images and details shared

Star Wars The Force Awakens

Let's see what other Force powers are out there - we haven't really seen anything new in a movie since Jedi, and it would be unbelievable to get a good look at someone using, say, Force Drain from various video games, as Snoke sucks the life out of his enemies in a bright, twisty column of energy.

Fortunately, if your really wanted to know more about all those subjects (including the gerbil part), Disney and LucasFilm revealed a deluge of new images and information about Rian Johnson's chapter in the ongoing Star Wars saga. Writer-director Rian Johnson confirmed in an interview from May that the story for Star Wars 8 wasn't "mapped out" when he signed on to the project, with the director revealing that the first step in this writing process was figuring out why Luke had exiled himself in the first place.

Here's all you need to know about the cuddly creatures that are about to invade your dreams: The porg are a species of birdlike alien that lives on Ahch-To, which is the nigh-unpronounceable name of the planet Luke is on at the end of Force Awakens.

"According to Ridley, Rey immediately thinks of Han Solo when she first meets Luke, and realizes: "'Oh my God, this other man that I lost within a couple days was somewhat of a father figure.


Yes, this is a new Star Wars that challenges much of what we knew to be the galaxy, far, far away and its twists do not stop at the light saber battle.

Speaking withEntertainment Weekly for its cover issue on The Last Jedi, Johnson talks about how he plans to use the cave paintings (that are presumably found in Ahch-To) to help dissect the history of the Jedi in the sequel trilogy installment. And he's sitting on this island in the middle of nowhere. Apparently, he flat-out doesn't want her there. Luke feels responsible for that. She is clearly able to hold her own evading TIE Fighters on Jakku and in a lightsaber duel against the likes of Kylo Ren. "It's that guilt, that feeling that it's his fault, that he didn't detect the darkness in him until it was too late". "He's a hero to people like Rose, who fight for the Resistance because their homes have been destroyed by the First Order".

"Poe Dameron is super cool. She's not royalty. She's someone who is just like everyone else".

There's nothing that gets me going quite like a few Star Wars: The Last Jedi images, and today my source of pornography is Entertainment Weekly.
