New comic miniseries will reveal more of Crait's backstory, including its connection to Luke and Leia.
Detailed examination of new 'Star Wars' set reveals some previously unknown details about the upcoming sequel.
We don’t know all that much about the purple-haired Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, the Resistance leader played by franchise newcomer Laura Dern in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi. But after this weekend’s D23 Expo in Anaheim, we do know that Holdo is handy with the steel (a still from the set showed her gripping a blaster in the fog).
Disney has owned Lucasfilm for five years now, and self-professed Disney-phile Mark Hamill could not be happier with life in the Magic Kingdom.
'Star Wars,' Marvel, live-action adaptations of animated classics, 'A Wrinkle in Time,' Disney Animation, and theme-parks updates get our attention at D23
After “Who are Rey’s parents?” perhaps the biggest unanswered question from Star Wars: The Force Awakens is how Captain Phasma, the chromed-out stormtrooper commander, managed to get off Starkiller Base before the weaponized planet exploded. As you undoubtedly recall, Phasma was tossed into a trash compactor by Han Solo, Finn, and Chewbacca. Marvel, which previously devoted a one-off comic book to how C-3PO got his red arm, will show us the presumably harrowing details of her escape in Journey to Star Wars: The Last Jedi— Captain Phasma.
Mark Hamill loves The Last Jedi's trailer. Cast Away or Kong: Skull Island's… not so much. Yahoo Movies caught up with Luke Skywalker at Star Wars Celebration Orlando last week and we asked him what he thought of the first preview of the latest sequel. "I loved it," Hamill told us, adding that he was especially happy that director Rian Johnson kept fans guessing. And with that, the (maybe?) last Jedi launched into a rant, which you can watch above, about his disdain for spoilers and trailers that give too much away.
Of all the characters to emerge from the Star Wars animated series, none has resonated more than Ahsoka Tano. With Lucasfilm about to plot out the next standalone films, Ahsoka has risen to the top of the wish list for many fans, including the actress who defines the role. "I would love an Ahsoka movie, not only as the voice of Ahsoka, but just as an Ahsoka fan," Eckstein told Yahoo Movies at Star Wars Celebration Orlando.
Star Wars devotees come in every shape and size, and the best part about the annual Celebration gatherings is that they all come in costume. Following the release of The Last Jedi trailer last Friday, we roamed the halls of the Orlando convention center to query the galaxy’s most dedicated fans about the meaning of Luke Skywalker’s beguiling line, “It’s time for the Jedi to end.”
Orlando was the epicenter of the Star Wars universe last week, with species from ports near and far congregating to celebrate the franchise. The four-day party kicked off with a 40th anniversary panel, which featured franchise stars Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Warwick Davis, Ian McDiarmid, and Hayden Christensen (returning to Celebration after more than a decade away), along with two unbilled surprise guests: saga mastermind George Lucas and, making his first appearance at a Celebration, Harrison Ford.
Two things we just learned about Mark Hamill: he hates spoilers and he’s an avowed liar. During Friday’s Last Jedi panel at Star Wars Celebration, Hamill came clean about his truth-telling… or lack thereof. “I lie all the time on social media,” Hamill said, gleefully acknowledging that he tweets out incorrect intel.
Just about one year ago, Princes Harry and William paid a visit to the set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi in London. They played with lightsabers. They admired BB-8. They hugged Chewie. They ate cake. This much we know is true. …and so has The Duke! pic.twitter.com/c9gOh4ACyA
When the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer premiered Friday at Star Wars Celebration, the audience wasn't alone in seeing the footage for the first time — the film's stars had no idea what was coming, either. Yahoo Movies caught up with the cast immediately after the debut, and grilled them on their initial reaction to the preview. (Watch above.)
One of the striking images from the just-released Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer is a group of vehicles racing over a hitherto unknown planet. Yahoo Movies caught up with writer-director Rian Johnson following the trailer’s unveiling Friday at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, where we discovered the planet is called Crait, confirmed those are AT-ATs coming over the hill, and got some intel on how the scene plays in the movie.
Thursday marks the start of the 2017 edition of Star Wars Celebration. The long-running fan convention draws Force acolytes and Sith devotees from around the world to catch sneak peeks of upcoming projects, meet cast members from movies and TV, show off their costuming prowess, attend deep-dive panels covering all sorts of Star Wars arcana, gorge themselves on rare collectibles, and log quality time with members of their tribe. With the 40th anniversary of the original installment, A New Hope, and a new chapter, The Last Jedi, on the horizon, there will be plenty to celebrate. ...

Star Wars: The Last Jedi doesn’t zoom into theaters until December, but it’s never too early to start planning your movie-going wardrobe.
