The four-day Star Wars Celebration kicked off Thursday, April 13, 2017 in Orlando, Fla., marking the 40-year anniversary of Lucas' space saga. She said the film will go "deep" into Rey's story and reveal how it can be hard meeting your heroes presumably alluding to a cranky Skywalker.
Some questions about Star Wars: The Force Awakens are left unanswered, such as who is the hooded figure standing next to R2D2, whose hand is tracing the sketched map, and who is the figure walking towards Poe Dameron and BB-8 after the explosion in the Resistance? The thing you've been dying to see ever since the credits rolled at the end of "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens". Considering the likely plot of the film and the attractive teaser trailer, it seems like Rey will be on a separate journey to become a Jedi and reconcile Luke Skywalker's diminished role in the Resistance while Finn seeks revenge ... and sleeps in a pod.
"Last Jedi" is the eighth film in the story of the Skywalker family and the sequel to one of the biggest box office blockbusters of all time, 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". While we've heard various details about her affiliation with Boyega's Ex-Stormtrooper, Finn, very few details surfaced surrounding Tran's character.
This image released by Lucasfilm shows John Boyega as Finn in a scene from the upcoming "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", expected in theaters in December.

He added, "We have USA forces at the site, and we see no evidence of civilian casualties nor have there been reports ". About 36 suspected militants were killed, according to Afghan officials, but IS has denied suffering any casualties.
Johnson paid his own tribute to Fisher - who had a career parallel to her acting as a writer and highly regarded script editor - revealing that she helped him with much of the dialogue. "Part of me did fall in love with her".
He said: "Both of us were like, "Yes, how do you take her out of it?' And the answer is you don't. And then, at the end of six hours, there would be like a four-word line of dialogue". Hamill, the most raucously received star on Friday, said he drew on his own experiences for this new chapter in Luke's life.
"I actually can tell you some things".
"To a certain extent, it's not Luke's story anymore". Hamill said his personal and professional life would have been diminished had she not been part of them.
