New Photos from Star Wars: The Last Jedi Have Been Revealed!
This week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly brings gives us new photos from the set of the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which comes out in December. EW also delves into the perils of hero worship, especially where Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is concerned. Rey (Daisy Ridley) quickly learns that Luke the man does not necessarily match Luke the legend.
Rey has heard plenty of stories about Luke Skywalker, the farm boy on Tatooine turned Jedi and hero of the Rebellion. One never quite knows what to expect after hearing such epic stories about a person. You have this ideal version of someone in your head based on the rose-colored tales others have told you. Then you mean the guy in the flesh and find something totally different. That seems to be Rey’s experience when she finally gets to meet Luke.
Rey finds the real Luke who is overpowered by regret; he’s eager to close the book on his past as he lives the rest of his days as a recluse.
I take that back. Luke isn’t entirely alone on that little island of his. There are Force-sensitive creatures inhabiting the Jedi temple alongside Skywalker. No, not the Porgs. Something else.
Elsewhere, Finn (John Boyega) has become a big deal in the Resistance. He embarks on a super cool mission to the casino city Canto Blight with Rose Tico (Kelly Marie Tran), a mechanic who works in the Resistance.
