Entertainment Weekly released this week their Fall Movie Preview issue and, of course, The Last Jedi is featured on cover + 7 pages inside. The EW website also has published a large article on Carrie Fisher and her final role as general Leia Organa.
They also released some new promotional images, including a beautiful one with Oscar Isaac as Poe. The article published talks a lot about the bond between the Resistance’s best fighter pilot and Carrie Fisher’s General Leia Organa.
“Poe is in some ways a surrogate son for Leia,” Isaac tells EW. “But also I think she sees in him the potential for a truly great leader of the Resistance and beyond.”
“Poe’s arc is one of evolving from a heroic soldier to a seasoned leader, to see beyond the single-mindedness of winning the battle to the larger picture of the future of the galaxy,” Isaac says. “I think Leia knows she won’t be around forever and she, with tough love, wants to push Poe to be more than the badass pilot, to temper his heroic impulses with wisdom and clarity.”
At this year’s D23 conference, all eyes are on “Star Wars.” Since “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” was released in 2015, the hype grows bigger and bigger with each new film in the series. This year marks the release of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” and instead of just giving us a standard trailer, Disney has unveiled behind the scenes look at the new episode in the Skywalker Saga. Watch 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.
