Mark Hamill: Carrie Fisher Star Wars tribute is 'therapy'

Mark Hamill: Carrie Fisher Star Wars tribute is 'therapy'

Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropped its first teaser trailer, and it left us with one huge question: why the heck would Luke want to end the Jedi? Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy told Fandango that doesn't have to end with the third trilogy if it makes sense to tell more Skywalker tales.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which is written and directed by Rian Johnson and continues the storylines introduced in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, welcomes back cast members Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will hit theaters on December 15, 2017.

The film's writer/director made a decision to forgo a good sleep before the Friday morning unveiling of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer to personally thank fans for their support as they patiently waited to be among the first allowed into the event.

The trailer also finally gave Hamill's Luke Skywalker some dialogue, following his silent appearance in The Force Awakens.

"Breathe. Just, breathe. Now reach out".

The trailer was released on Friday at the Star Wars Celebration convention in Orlando, after Carrie Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd paid tribute to her mother while wearing a Princess Leia-inspired dress by Tom Ford.

That same thing will apply to the standard trooper characters that players can utilize, which will run the gamut from Phantom Menace-era battle droids, to Imperial officers, to First Order Stormtroopers. "[She] has the biggest new part in the movie and ironically is played by the smallest actor", said Johnson. I was off in the swampland with the puppets and robots, but at least Carrie and Harrison got to work with human beings.

"If there are any Mandalorian fans out there. there are a couple episodes that you may really enjoy. and you might be surprised who shows up", she said, referencing the origin world of Fett's armor.

"I did some ADR last week, and I saw a little clip of something that I didn't know was going to be in it", she said. "I can't wait for you to meet her". I think every guy.

Not only will Fisher play a significant role in The Last Jedi, but we'll get to hear her "incredible mind" at work in the script. She has already appeared as Princess/General Leia in five movies.
