Disney-Lucasfilm’s “The Last Jedi” just released new behind-the-scenes footage and held a panel discussion with director Rian Johnson at D23.. The film opens Dec. 15 as the second film in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, following 2015’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” with Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o and Domhnall Gleeson in returning roles.
Saturday’s teaser offers a behind-the-scenes look at episode VIII, complete with action shots, outtakes, and even some new characters. The film also stars Carrie Fisher, who died in late 2016. Fisher had wrapped shooting “The Last Jedi” before her death, and Lucasfilm said there are “no plans” to digitally recreate her in future films.
Also newly released are some gorgeous new posters to mark the release of the film.
