Lots of neat information to go around! It was confirmed that the desert planet was not Tatooine as some had speculated, but a new planet called Jakku. Finn, Rey, and Poe all fit into the rumored character descriptions that we’ve heard about for a long while. Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Oscar Isaac, BB-8, R2-D2, and several Stormtroopers took center stage alongside Kennedy and Abrams. In other news, J. J. Abrams and Kathleen Kennedy announced an initiative to help solve the issue of world hunger.
Okay, do we really have to say anything about this? Just… Watch it if you haven’t already. Watch it again even if you have. We’ll wait.
All sorts of models, props, and costumes were put on display for the movie, including the new kinds of Stormtroopers and the names of two new factions: the First Order and the Resistance (and yes, these are official and not codenames).
There’s unfortunately not a lot to say about this one, but it’s worth a look if you’re into Disney/Star Wars character mashups and events like Star Wars Weekends.
A lot of ground to cover on this one, discussing a handful of story arcs that were planned but remain unfinished. One of the arcs, “The Bad Batch”, is set to have its animatics shown tomorrow.
