Star Wars Weekly Buzz: A Closer Look at The Force Awakens Walkers; Rian Johnson Addresses Some of VF’s Revelations and More

There is no doubt that this week belongs to Vanity Fair and their awesome coverage on The Last Jedi, as well as the celebration of Star Wars’ 40th anniversary. Still, there were a few interesting bits that made their way in our weekly social buzz article. We will take a closer look at the walkers from The Force Awakens; a few of The Last Jedi cast members attend a John Williams scoring for The Last Jedi; Rian Johnson addresses some fans issues; Oscar Isaac pays Stephen Colbert a visit on The Late Show; Meet Jeremy – The Force for Change winner, New authors added to the “40 stories – 40 authors” book “From a Certain Point of View“; The latest from Pablo Hidalgo and more.



The German Amazon has a look inside in an upcoming Star Wars book titled “Star Wars – On The Front Lines“, which gives us a closer look at the walkers from The Force Awakens that we briefly saw in the background during Hux’ speech on Starkiller Base:


Some people thought this could be a walker from The Last Jedi, but Pablo Hidalgo clarified:





Mark Hamill, Laura Dern and Rian Johnson attended a scoring session for The Last Jedi, watching the maestro John Williams doing his magic!




Also Rian Johnson addressed the topic about the romance in The Last Jedi that was discussed in one of Vanity Fair’s articles from yesterday:



And here’s another important post by Johnson regarding the aliens in The Last Jedi.







This comment was in regards to fan outrage about the fact that we don’t see any familiar aliens in The Last Jedi, based just on the Vanity Fair photo shoot. Pablo Hidalgo tried to explain why that was, but he quickly became target of some fans about the gripe and really doesn’t have anything to do with this. Here’s what Pablo said before that:



I really don’t see why people get upset by not seeing a familiar alien in a place that we’ve never seen before, and all that based on just one photo shoot. If what we heard is right and we will be going back to Tatooine, Endor and Mustafar in the Sequel Trilogy, I am sure we will see some familiar creatures.



And here’s what Johnson thinks of The Last Jedi. :)







Oscar Isaac appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. He spoke briefly about his scenes with Carrie Fisher in The Last Jedi and how she slapped him 27 times. :)

Check out the full interview below:
