Jedi Fallen Order’s Extended Demo: AT-ATs, Puzzles, and Exploration

The Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order gameplay reveal on EA’s E3 livestream had plenty of impressive moments, but gave the impression that it would play more like a cinematic but linear adventure with little room for exploration. Developer Respawn’s hands-off demo at EA Play showed what happens in the 15 minutes prior to when Cal Kestis meets with Saw Gerrera, and those more open-ended moments demonstrated how exploration with environmental puzzles and plenty of parkour will be part of the gameplay.

Jedi: Fallen Order is a third-person adventure set after the infamous events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, in which Palpatine issues Order 66 and wipes out the great majority of the Jedi Order. Fallen Order has plenty of Jedi action – like Force pushing a hapless R2 droid into a Stormtrooper for an explosive start to a fight. And even though Cal was just a padawan when his master was presumably killed, it’s clear he’s become strong with the Force. The extended demo starts with him swimming through the shallow waters of the wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk with his trusty droid sidekick, BD-1, perched on his back. He scales the side of a vine- and- mud-covered AT-AT until he finds an entrance, slays three Stormtroopers with his mix of lightsaber and Force powers, uses BD-1 to get a jump on two unsuspecting troops at the controls, then uses it to help the rebels on the ground.

Last Jedi: You’d Be Surprised These Scenes Weren’t CGI

These days it’s generally assumed that anything in movies beyond the norm of reality — and even then, some of the humdrum stuff too — is achieved via CG. But that’s certainly not the case, as Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s special effects supervisor Chris Corbould could tell you. From Force-destroyed huts to scores of falling bombs and beyond, many of the effects in The Last Jedi were created the good old-fashioned practical way.

On the occasion of The Last Jedi’s release on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital, I spoke to Corbould — who has worked on everything from The Dark Knight to a bunch of James Bond movies to The Who’s rock opera Tommy. He broke down some of the secrets of his trade…

Star Wars: BB-8 Dishes on Meeting Prince William and Harry at The Last Jedi Premiere

BB-8 is spilling it all!

The beloved droid stopped by PEOPLE Now to dish on everything Star Wars: The Last Jedi. (Disclaimer: The PEOPLE staff does not speak fluent droid and is likely making this all up.)

BB-8 said (beeped?) he loved getting the chance to meet Prince William and Harry on the red carpet at the London premiere of the film and that he does not get along with his evil counterpart BB-9E.

As for the best piece of advice fellow robot R2-D2 gave him?

“Don’t get blown up,” said the droid.

And staying true to the holiday season, BB-8 said if he had a lightsaber, it would almost certainly be red and green.

For his thoughts on porgs and to hear even more behind-the-scenes secrets from The Last Jedi, watch the above video.

In PEOPLE’s new special issue Star Wars: The Ultimate Guide to The Last Jedi (on newsstands now) and an exclusive PeopleTV special, BB-8 puppeteers Brian Herring and Dave Chapman open up about what fans can expect from the rolling droid in the upcoming film.

“He’s still a member of the heroes gang,” says Chapman. “He’s in there getting dirty and down with it.”

While Herring and Chapman promise fans that BB-8 will once again serve as a “comic relief” in the film, they say his role in the story is more important than ever.

“He’s a pivotal point, as the droids of Star Wars tends to be,” says Herring. “He also does a lot of stuff that we haven’t seen him do yet.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters Dec. 15.

Last Jedi Director to Create Star Wars Trilogy

Rian Johnson, director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, will be creating a brand-new trilogy of Star Wars films, and is set to write and direct the first of the three films.

StarWars.com announced that Johnson will write and direct the first of the three films along with his long-time collaborator Ram Bergman as producer. The trilogy will be separate from the Skywalker saga and “introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.”

Though reports have said Lucasfilm is looking into making more films beyond Episode IX featuring the characters introduced in The Force Awakens, the official announcement of Johnson’s films indicate these will be entirely different projects.

These Star Wars: The Last Jedi Figures are Incredibly Realistic

Hasbro’s Black Series figures continue to set a high bar for Star Wars collectibles, and these new figures from Star Wars: The Last Jedi are no exception.

IGN checked out Hasbro’s slate of notable new Black Series figures at New York Comic Con, including a new look at DJ, Benicio Del Toro’s Last Jedi character, and Rey. Rey, DJ and Rex’s figures will all be available in early 2018, while the new figures for Lando Calrissian, 4-Lom and Dengar will be released later in the year.

These Black Series figures make use of Hasbro’s new face scanning technology that helps make the collectibles look incredibly realistic when compared to their real-life counterparts.

These weren’t the only Last Jedi toys being showcased at NYCC. In addition to the Porg plushie that had previously been released at Force Friday, Hasbro also was showing off these realistic-looking Luke and Rey collectibles.

Williams played Lando, of course, in Empire Strikes Back and The Return of the Jedi, but has also voiced the character in Rebels, Robot Chicken, Lego Star Wars, and Battlefront.

A younger version of Lando Calrissian, played by Donald Glover, will appear in the upcoming Han Solo anthology film.

In addition to his “Smooth Talkin’” panel, Williams also appeared at Thursday’s “40 Years of Star Wars” panel alongside George Lucas and former co-stars Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Anthony Daniels, Warwick Davis, and Peter Mayhew.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Footage Reveals Luke’s First Words to Rey

 

This article was originally published on EW.com.

It pays to be a Disney shareholder. While Star Wars fans are waiting on the first trailer for The Last Jedi, the House of Mouse screened top-secret footage from the eighth chapter in the Skywalker saga during a Disney shareholders meeting. Fortunately, we have a few details.

According to Los Angeles Times reporter Daniel Miller, who tweeted out some movie morsels, the footage featured Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) asking Rey (Daisy Ridley), “Who are you?” before the prospective padawan “deftly” handles a lightsaber.

Finn (John Boyega) and Chewbacca were also spotted, while Carrie Fisher’s General Leia Organa appeared briefly in military attire. Elsewhere in the footage, Miller reports sweeping scenes of “mountains, oceans, forests, deserts,” as well as “an X-Wing wobbling mid-air, under attack inside a giant ship.”

Read more below.

 

For now, that’s all we’re getting.

Disney revealed a sliver of footage of Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage to the public with its start-of-production video (see below). Compared to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the studio is keeping a trailer under wraps for a longer time. (Perhaps until Star Wars Celebration.) That might be because there’s a lot more going on in that galaxy far, far away — Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit theaters just a few months ago, and the still-untitled Han Solo film recently kicked off production.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, directed by Looper‘s Rian Johnson, is expected in theaters on Dec. 15.

Josh Gad, Chris Pratt And J.J. Abrams Really Want Daisy Ridley To Spoil ‘The Last Jedi’

Josh Gad, Chris Pratt and J.J. Abrams really want answers about “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” 

On Monday, Gad shared a video on Twitter in which Pratt, Abrams and fellow members of Hollywood, such as Bryce Dallas Howard and Penelope Cruz, bombard Daisy Ridley with their questions about the upcoming film in the “Star Wars” franchise. But Ridley, who will reprise her role as Rey in the next installment, keeps mum on the subject.

Gad, who’s currently filming “Murder on the Orient Express” with Ridley, has been trying to get answers since January. He’s even enlisted help from Dame Judi Dench, but still, Ridley kept quiet.

To Gad’s dismay, Ridley hasn’t given him the answers he so desperately wants. And while she sometimes appears annoyed, her giggles in the clips lead us to believe she’s probably in on the joke. 

You can check out a compilation of all the clips below: 

We guess Gad and everyone else will just have to wait until Dec. 15, when “The Last Jedi” hits theaters.
