The Last Jedi: Supreme Leader Snoke emerges with elite Praetorian Guard
When Johnson sat down withEntertainment Weekly to talk about the new #StarWars film, he began breaking down details on Snoke's bodygaurds, describing them as similar to the Imperial guards who walked with the Emperor.
The magazine's upcoming Fall Movie Preview issue features two covers: one of a seemingly bitter Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) cloaked in a Jedi robe, and another of Rey (Daisy Ridley), the scavenger with Force powers wielding Luke's old lightsaber. Instead, she finds a man overpowered by regret, eager to close the book on his past while living out the rest of his days on an isolated island.
There's also some "fish-bird" aliens called "The Caretakers", which you can also see below. The 10 photos themselves aren't the most informative in the world, but the captions are.
It's not all cute critters and galactic roulette, however.
Naturally, having someone who believes him to be a hero challenges Finn's view of himself, inspiring him to stick around and fight the good fight. That's going to throw a wrench into all of our Luke-as-Obi-Wan dreams, Jedi beard notwithstanding. Now, whether or not you agree with that, it's safe to say that Lucasfilm is well aware of the criticisms, and will not be looking to repeat that with The Last Jedi. They're his (Snoke) personal guards. Fisher passed away unexpectedly in December of past year, following a heart attack she suffered while en route from London to Los Angeles, and was originally slated to have a major role in Star Wars: Episode IX.
The Last Jedi will be in theaters on December 15, at which point you'll finally get to see these insane porgs in action.
This subplot-as well as a few other threads that have been teased from the Star Wars saga's next installment-prompts another question: just how much of this film's plot will be cribbed from The Empire Strikes Back?
I mean, if I was accidentally responsible the rise of a new Dark-Side prodigy who seems set to repeat the endless cycle of galactic suffering, I'd probably get a bit withdrawn too.
Fans and friends are still mourning the loss of actress Carrie Fisher.
In an extended post on Reddit, Star Wars enthusiast Ringer7 says that it seems unlikely the character will die off-screen. Anyway, Johnson goes on to mention that the Caretakers only "tolerate" Luke's presence on Ahch-To, which strikes me as incredibly amusing for some reason.
