‘The Last Jedi’ Director Rian Johnson on the Importance of Carrie Fisher

Calls the actress/screenwriter “one of my heroes.”

Yahoo Movies recently sat down with Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson to talk about how the new trailer, why Porgs are so damn cute and how he decided what bits of plot and action to reveal and what to hide in the  marketing campaign leading up to the movie.

But Johnson took a more serious tone when discussing what it meant to him to work with industry icon Carrie Fisher, who played Leia in the original trilogy.

“She was so conscious of the place that Leia had, not just broadly in the culture, but very specifically in terms of girls who grew up watching Star Wars when Leia was the only female hero on the screen,” Johnson says. “She really wanted to do right by that, drawing the character forward. That was something that she would always be pulling us back to. And for me it was fantastic, because besides all the other benefits of having a fantastic writer like Carrie there by my side while we’re making this movie, just having a voice that was like a compass needle that would always pull it back in the right direction of, This is what this character means and this is what we always have to make sure that she’s serving, with her strength and also with her weaknesses — showing a fully realized character who is going to be inspiring to the folks who grew up with Leia.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in theaters on Dec. 15.


First Trailer for The Last Jedi Debuts Tonight

Trailer will debut during halftime of Monday Night Football

Tickets are also on sale now. You should go buy some.

Tonight, despite great personal aversion, I will be watching as little of Monday Night Football as possible while waiting for the debut of the first Last Jedi trailer.

We’re guessing that halftime will be about about 7 pm PST / 10 pm EST.

Woman Has Best Reaction to the End of Rogue One of All Time

I remember when I was a kid, and we went to see The Empire Strikes Back. When Darth Vader uttered the famous line, “No. I am your father” — the entire theater erupted in pandemonium and shock

That doesn’t happen anymore. The Internet killed the spoiler.Trailers routinely ruin key moments in the film in order to put butts in seats. And fans obsessively uncover secrets and share them — often before the film was even released.

But what if that wasn’t the case? What if you went into Rogue One blind, having no idea that its ending dovetailed directly into the beginning of A New Hope? Thanks to one anonymous teen and the genius who thought to film her, we finally know how someone would react..

How she avoided the spoilers until the film hit the home market, we will never know. But the look on her face is the purest expression of fan joy and wonder that I have ever seen.

I envy her.
