Star Wars: The Last Jedi to offer 'catharsis' for Carrie Fisher fans

Star Wars 8 Luke and Kylo Ren news

Star Wars 8 Luke and Kylo Ren news

The world lost actress Carrie Fisher too soon, but thanks to a behind-the-scenes peek at the new "Star Wars" movie, fans can see her in action again.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" will hit screens on December 15. "So The Last Jedi in all the things that it means is tied up in it".

Space Planes! Our own Film Crit Hulk has the scoop, and in addition to behind-the-scenes footage and a lovely Leia poster, we can now feast our eyes on the entire collection of The Last Jedi character one-sheets. And as a core member of the franchise family herself, it's safe to say Fisher was on everyone's minds at the event.

Disney's Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Bob Iger also told the D23 Expo audience on Friday (14Jul17), when Carrie and Mark were both honoured as new Disney Legends, that he and fellow company executives consider the icon's work in the new film his "best performance to date".

"There was a comfort level with each other", Hamill recalled. "I know for me it does".

That small list breaks the tip of the iceberg, but we have some video to share with you which offers a slightly edited down look at everything that Disney presented to its hoards of fans over the two days. Lourd, who is now filming "American Horror Story", was unable to make it to the event - but she penned a speech delivered by Disney CEO Bob Iger.

Ridley added she was having mixed feelings while watching Princess Leia's scenes in the upcoming film.

"One of the experiences discussed was "Holochess" - as first seen played in a match between Chewbacca and R2-D2 in Star Wars: A New Hope".
