Oscar stopped by ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ last Thursday (May 26), which was also the 40th anniversary of Star Wars. He talked about his admiration for the late Carrie Fisher and some of their time together on what would be her final Star Wars film.
“A large amount of the stuff I got to do was with Carrie, which was amazing,” Isaac began. “I remember the first day of shooting was a scene with Carrie … I remember it was a scene where I come up and talk with her, and she is very upset with me and slaps me. And Rian Johnson, the director, kept doing it over and over. I think it ended up being 27 takes of Carrie just leaning in (mimics hard slapping).”
Isaac also had a funny anecdote about how he tired to initially keep his Force Awakens script after wrap, which he was supposed to give back, and finally did when Disney mentioned the lawyers were looking for it.
Alongside the trailer, the (stunning!) poster for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was also released. You can find it in our gallery.
Also, Rian Johnson shared during the Star Wars Convention panel some behind the scenes pictures from The Last Jedi, and we have the ones including Oscar in the tweets below. We hope to get them in better quality anytime soon.

Rian Johnson directs episode eight, which will reportedly pick up right were J.J. Abrams’ picture ends. Daisy Ridley returns as Rey, the powerful potential Jedi whose way with the Force allowed her to stand against some of the galaxy’s nastiest villains. This time, she’ll get to share more than a silent glance with Mark Hamill‘s Luke Skywalker, who is going to serve as the Yoda to her…well, Luke Skywalker.
The rest of the new cast returns as well, including John Boyega as former Stormtrooper Finn, Oscar Isaac as dashing pilot Poe Dameron, Adam Driver as the Darth Vader-obsessed Kylo Ren (also known in certain circles as Ben Solo), Domhnall Gleason as the sniveling General Hux, Gwendoline Christie as the chrome-plated Stormtrooper commander Captain Phasma, and Andy Serkis as the mysterious Supreme Leader Snoke, who rules the First Order with an iron fist. Of course, a few familiar faces (and voices) return as well, including Anthony Daniels as C-3PO and the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa. New cast members include Laura Dern, Benicio del Toro, and Kelly Marie Tran.
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” opens on December 15th.
