Behind-the-scenes look at new Star Wars film

17 July 2017, 05:16 | Erma Lawrence

This was very much like the previous behind the scenes look we got at D23 2015 for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There are also looks at star Daisy Ridley's lightsaber training routines, more of Mark Hammil's grizzled Luke Skywalker, some cool action beats, and much more. The video shows how the practical effects and CGI effects are going to be combined for the film.

Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Gwendoline Christie, and Mark Hamill wowed Star Wars: The Last Jedi fans and shared new footage in California on Saturday (15Jul17).

Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, who also appears in "The Last Jedi", accepted the award on her mother's behalf.

Disney just created an augmented reality, Star Wars game that will let people play like a real Jedi Knight!

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is coming to theaters on December 15. There's also an image of him and Rose in First Order disguises. Today is not that day. From Kylo's Dark Side chic, to Poe's Resistance insignia, to Leia's regal garb, to Finn's, well, Poe jacket - everyone except Rey, who's gone full Jedi robe!

Howevr, Disney and Lucasfilm apparently had another surprise in store for fans today besides that sizzle reel: a batch of brand new characters posters for The Last Jedi, spotlighting Rey, Finn, General Leia, and last but not least, Luke Skywalker.

Along with Skellig Michael, the trailer reveals shots of other locations along the western seaboard, which were chosen to represent the planet Ahch-to in the latest space blockbuster. New cast members will include Academy Award victor Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran as Rose.
