‘Star Wars’ is about family, and that’s what’s so powerful about it.”
The director and the cast of Star Wars: The Last Jedi showcased a behind-the-scenes video for the fan attendees at the recent D23 Expo in Anaheim. Sharing the stage with director Rian Johnson were Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma), Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and new faces Kelly Marie Tran (Rose Tico), Benicio Del Toro (DJ) and Laura Dern (Vice Adm. Amilyn Holdo).
The video contains captivating set locations, animal animatronics and glimpses of the characters, both old and new. There are also dramatic scenes like stormtroopers fighting and under cover rebels that give clues to the undisclosed plot.
The video gets a bittersweet end with the late Carrie Fisher (Gen. Leia), who was quoted in the tease saying, “[‘Star Wars’ is] about family, and that’s what’s so powerful about it.”
“The Last Jedi” hits theaters Dec. 15. Below are some of the best shots from the BTS.
