This past weekend at D23Expo, we saw exclusive behind the scenes Star Wars The Last Jedi Footage, yes that’s right, Behind the scenes of Star Wars The Last Jedi and I had chills watching the footage. We also saw the major actors on stage, Director Rian Johnson surprised fans with on-stage appearances by cast members Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro, and they gave little anecdotes of what they have been through while filming. Mark Hamill was cut short because he was on the verge of spilling a top secret spoiler.
Also during the behind the scenes footage each of the actors had a few behind the things to say. Carrie Fisher said in regards to the story behind the Star Wars saga, “it’s a story about a family”. We’ve heard that many times, but who is Rey’s family because obviously we’ve also been told that this new addition to Star Wars is about the “new kids”, which would be Rey, Fin and Poe Dameron And Mark Hamill said that, they keep throwing things at me that I never saw coming, or something along the lines of that. You have to watch this behind the scenes footage of Star Wars The Last Jedi.
Didn’t that give you chills?
I could watch that video over and over again. I’m pretty sure that based on a few things that were said and not said but acted out on stage at D23, Fin will be having an epic battle with Captain Phasma. While they were on stage, John Boyega said he would have an Epic battle, much better than the movie before with a certain evil villain. Then he walked over to Gwendoline Christie tried to stare her down in the eyes and give her the showdown on stage. She is so tall you know? So that was like revealing a secret without really revealing a secret.
Watching these people on stage, fans throughout the room were “CRAZY”. It was so exciting that I highly recommend keeping up with all things D23. And if you get the chance to go you should go. Be prepared to wait in line but it’s worth it. When else are you ever going to be in a room with the major actors of the next Star Wars film. (And other movies in the Disney family. I have to give you my update on all things Marvel, but that has to be for another blog post. Marvel and Star Wars are two different worlds guys. STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is in theaters December 15, 2017!
