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

Sunday, 16 Apr, 2017

"Breathe. Just, breathe. Now reach out. What do you see?" says a mysterious male voice as the camera focuses on a breathless Rey (Daisy Ridley) on her hands and knees beneath a cliff face.

Another plausible theory is that Luke could be establishing a new order where there will be a balance between the light and dark.

"It's so much bigger", he replies. "If that wasn't ridiculous enough, she had me put on one of those bald cap masks with the Bozo hair and glasses and nose and then she walked me around the back lot".

"I know what it's like when you don't end a series", he said, referring to the unceremonious end to "The Clone Wars".

Regardless, the trailer is properly brilliant, and probably even better than the trailer for The Last Jedi.

Directed by Rian Johnson ("Looper", "Brick"), "The Last Jedi" was filmed on the west coast of Ireland and at Pinewood Studios near London.

This animated storyline starts after the events of "Episode III - Revenge of the Sith", where Anakin Skywalker has already turned into Darth Vader, but is set before "Episode IV - A New Hope", where we met Luke, Obi-Wan and company for the first time on the big screen. They show a picture of Johnson signing the Millennium Falcon. Fisher died in December, but filmed scenes in The Last Jedi before her death.

"That was what I thought was so incredible about her".

Hamill told stories of visiting with Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, in NY and attending incredible parties at their homes in Los Angeles.

Season 3 ended with Ezra experiencing some serious growth, Hera cementing her position as a capable leader, Sabine appearing to return to her people, and Kanan coming to terms with the loss of his vision - which the show runners say will continue into Season 4. "I think about 'Where are we going?' and 'What do the characters need to go through?' So this is where I have to tell you - and this is my decision, as the creator of this show - that season four is the final season of Star Wars Rebels".

Todd Fisher and Billie Lourd, Fisher's brother and daughter, confirmed giving Disney permission to use previously shot footage of Fisher as General Leia Organa for Episode IX; however, Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy just came out and denied this. The character will be played by Kelly Marie Tran and she will be portraying a maintenance worker for the Resistance named Rose. With modes supporting up to 40 players, Star Wars Battlefront II takes fans through a wide range of iconic locations from all three eras: prequel, classic and new trilogy, including new in-game locations such as Yavin 4's jungle canopies, the spaceport town of Mos Eisley, and Starkiller Base.
