Star Wars Weekly Buzz: New The Last Jedi Coverage from Empire Imminent? Mark Hamill, Adam Driver and John Boyega Interviews, and Toys, Lots of Toys!

Because of the Force Friday II event tomorrow, we are posting our Weekly Buzz piece today.

This week on the Weekly Buzz: Empire Magazine teases some upcoming Star Wars content; Mark Hamill talks Luke Skywalker in The Last Jedi; New interviews with Adam Driver and John Boyega; New photo of Rey on Ahch-to; Benicio Del Toro’s character DJ gets a Funko Pop figure; Another look at Chewie and the porgs; Hasbro’s new Forcelink gadget reveals new lines of Supreme Leader Snoke, possibly from The Last Jedi; The latest from Pablo Hidalgo and Rian Johnson, and …. toys. Lots of toys.

 

 

First we start with this curious tweet by Empire Magazine:

 

 

Remember that Empire’s first coverage on Rogue One happened in August 2016 (here), so we’re assuming that in the following days we will get their new and exclusive story on The Last Jedi. Or could this be just some Force Friday II trick? We will have to wait and see.
 

 

 

In a new interview with The Associated Press, Mark Hamill briefly talked about Luke Skywalker’s backstory in The Last Jedi, and his feelings about making a Star Wars movie without Carrie Fisher.

AP: Did this feel like a different Luke to you? It sounds as though this is a darker version of the character that may be unfamiliar to fans and even to you.

Hamill: Absolutely. Luke changed, I think, more than the other characters in the original trilogy, from callow farm boy to a Jedi in training to finally a Jedi master. What you’re talking about is what really fascinated me. Between “Return of the Jedi” and “Force Awakens,” there’s just decades of history that’s unknown. So I was wondering how they’re going to handle all this. Now, obviously, with “Force Awakens,” J.J. (Abrams) had a full plate. It was inevitable that they would push me down the line. I was sorry I wasn’t able to work with any of the original actors again. But it’s not about us anymore. In this new one, I was saying to Rian Johnson: I need to know my backstory. It was kind of unclear. You read where he is now and what he’s doing now and sort of have to fill in the blanks for yourself. So I did do a backstory myself. It’s not about Luke anymore, so it’s not really important. But I had to make sense of it for myself. What Rian came up with, I was stunned.

 

 

AP: Does it feel different to be putting out a “Star Wars” movie without Carrie Fisher, who died in December, and Harrison Ford, who exited with “Force Awakens”?

Hamill: It is different. She was irreplaceable. There can never be a proper reunion anymore. It’s tragic. I hate that it adds an air of melancholy to the film because it doesn’t deserve it. I know for a fact she would obviously want us to be having fun. She was all about laughter and enjoying the moment. We’re all sort of having this communal period of grief. In a way, it sort of reflects the movies themselves, which were about triumphs and tragedies. They are about a family — a dysfunctional family, but a family nonetheless.

 

 

The interview also revealed a little known fact about Hamill. He briefly worked as a copyboy at the AP’s Los Angeles office while he was at college.

You can read the whole interview here.

 

 

And this tweet by Mark doesn’t really need a comment…

 

 

 

 

 

 

A few days ago Adam Driver and John Boyega did two interviews sharing a few tidbits about The Last Jedi. Check them out below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A new photo of Rey on Ahch-To from The Last Jedi has been revealed by Yahoo Movies in their Fall Movie Preview:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Del Rey has revealed the title page and the full cover jacket for the new novel Phasma, written by Delilah S. Dawson. The book is officially released tomorrow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Force Friday is almost here. It’s time for the toys dump. 🙂

 

 

 

 

 

LEGO has just unveiled their new mega Star Wars set, consisting of 7541 pieces – the UCS Millennium Falcon!!!

 

You can read more about it at USA Today.

 

 

 

 

 

Although pretty much all of the new Hasbro figures for Force Friday II have leaked, here’s an official look at all of them thanks to Entertainment Weekly. Click here.

 

 

Also io9 has an exclusive look at some new (some already leaked) Black Series figures by Hasbro. Check them out here.

 

 

And more “official” revelations of Hasbro toys by THR (click here). The most interesting piece here is the Black Series Admiral Ackbar from The Last Jedi (see photo above).

 

 

 

Also check out Tamashii Nashions awesome figures from The Last Jedi here.

 

 

 

 

 

Any Funko Pop fans?

 


 

 

 

 

New video with the BB-8 Mega Playset reveals several lines from Supreme Leader Snoke that might find their way in The Last Jedi or remain in the merchandise world:

 

 

 

Here’s a transcription via reddit member SPACEMONKEY_01:

 

“There’s been an awakening.”

“We will crush them once and for all.”

“The resistance will soon be in our grasp.”

Woosh sounds, Could be Force related??

“For you, all is lost.”

“Your emotions have made you weak.”

(Next to the throne platform with FL) “I have been expecting you.”

 

It’s curious that the Praetorian Guard didn’t get any lines, just sounds.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The guys from the Instagram account NewsFromJakku shared another interesting image of Chewie with some porgs. The same art has also been spotted on some new The Last Jedi t-shirts.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And another cool promo image from The Last Jedi probably coming from some merchandise products:

 

 

 

 

 

 

First look at Benicio del Toro’s character DJ from The Last Jedi in Funko Pop form:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sphero assembles their droid line for Star Wars, featuring the new First Order BB unit:

More toys give us a much closer look at the outfits of the new A-Wing Resistance pilots and the Canto Bight Police Department officers:

 

New Shots of Canto Bight Officer and Resistance A-Wing Pilot from StarWarsLeaks

 

 

 

 

 

Not that we needed any more confirmation, but Rey’s Black Series figure seems to confirm that Luke Skywalker is indeed the last Jedi in The Last Jedi. 🙂

 

At long last, Rey has found Luke Skywalker, the last Jedi Master in the galaxy. Hoping to find a hero of legend, she must unlearn what she has learned as Skywalker challenges her expectations.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yakface has compiled yet another great unofficial toy checklist for this year’s Force Friday II event. It must be pretty accurate so make sure to check it out:

 

 

 

 

 

 

For all the fans of the game Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes, EA announced a new feature called Territory Battles, which delivers dynamic challenges and rewards for your entire guild. Check out the new trailer:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now that Star Wars: Rebels season 3 is officially released on Blu-ray and DVD, the official site shared some of the exclusive clips we’ve been seeing in the past few weeks on their YouTube page. You can check them out below in case you missed some of them.

    That Kylo pose with the saber pointing the floor… It’s like a parody of the templary lightsaber itself.

      cool pose for sure…i hope that we find a common thread back to Reven with the saber and helmet style, originally I was sure that there was a connection as they made it so similar.

            the bottom part does, but that design pops up in star wars in other helmets, too. It didn’t look identical to me the way some thought.

            I’m really starting to believe that you literally are one of the PR guys that Disney pays for working on social media to dispel anything negative….

            c’mon man, where did they come up with his mask from? Was that part of their creative freedom that they insisted they needed?

            Ask whatever designer who worked on it. I don’t think this is a negative. I just find it hard to believe the artist who worked on this (the same ones who worked on the prequels) copied this design.

            we should definitely find someone who knows…the sword is of ancient design as mentioned in numerous articles, his time frame eluded to on “Rebels”…I’m sure there has to be a connection to his design of the mask.

            or not….find out! lol

      It also makes no sense as his sword would burn through most anything and not support his weight. Unless of course beskar’gam is canon again and they use it for flooring! 😛

          I had no problem with him until Disney buyout. Since then, he always has his “comments” that to me(and it could just be me) are always in a smartass demeanor. And in my opinion…he is giving the most input on direction of the franchise or at least adding weight to the story group. Probably too much to go on here about. Once again, another one of those beer things. My poor drinking buds , never get a break after a conversation starts here or elsewhere .

            “And in my opinion…he is giving the most input on direction of the franchise or at least adding weight to the story group”

            There is no basis for this, though. Kiri Hart is the head of the Story Group and she is his boss. Pablo is the most public face of the story group, but that’s just because he has a Twitter account and answers questions.

            he is the senior of the new story group, and you know he uses that fact to his advantage…thus, as to why he is the one answering the questions. Don’t wind me up about the unqualified Kiri….you must stop now. plz

            I personally don’t think Pablo was given a specific mission on Twitter. This is who he is and he also has to combine the restrictions of knowing so much with this. As someone who runs one of the biggest Star Wars fan sites in the world, I can tell you that what Pablo does for all of us is magnificent. For me there is no doubt that his means are pure in trying to expand the known SW universe. And believe me it’s really hard to do that with the internet today, when everyone is hiding behind his IP.
            People would really start to appreciate Pablo if he leaves for good. What then? You wait for the yearly EW piece on the latest SW movie and Force Friday? And you will have so many tiny questions that will never find an answer? As our own Jelena said: Pablo is a national treasure. And I really believe that. He may be too stiff and direct at times, but believe me, every human being would react like that with all the bitter messages fired at him. He is just here trying to help make the journey easier to understand. There are big gaps in the the SW canon and without him there would be a huge void.

            And you guys do a good job! It’s my opinion on how Pablo reacts or says things at times that just get under my skin. I’m sure it’s “me”. I’m a bit finicky.
            I’m sure he’s a valuable asset to you guys and keeping up with the most up to date items out there

            Personally I like Chee, and his knowledge of all is second to none.

            “Most senior” doesn’t mean anything in a hierarchy, though.

            he is answering questions because he enjoys it. It’s a personal account, not a corporate one. He isn’t paid for his twitter account, lol.

            “you know he uses that fact to his advantage” No one knows this, lol. You aren’t doing a good job of sounding logical. You are just literally making things up. Your unfounded fears and biases aren’t reality.

            Are you just upset about Legends or something? I don’t get it.

            “Unqualified”? Wow. The one that needs to stop right now is you.

            of course it matters…it always matters when someone is the most senior.
            And you are right, it is an assumption on my part for sure. But knowing how little he spoke before Lucas left and after is a big difference. Hell, let’s ask him how much input he has. I may be wrong, but that is my perception based on story lines and his comments of such.

            And of course I’m still upset over the loss of the “EU” (hate the legends banner)…why shouldn’t I be? That was a terrible way to treat fans with how they handled it.

            And yes,,,she is unqualified to run the story group at SW. A complete outsider to SW and it’s community. There were a hundred more qualified people to take that spot. And what have we gotten from it…weaker stories…the books have been struggling so they brought back in the older EU writers to spin their new stories with varied success.

            Much is my opinion as always but I call out the good and bad…I did love R1…

            He was still on twitter before Lucas left. He was hilarious, one of my fave accounts. It was AFTER the sale that interest in Star Wars suddenly skyrocketed and people took him to be the seer of Star Wars and bombard him with asinine questions haha.

            I loved the EU as well, but I was ready for it to go away, honestly. I lost interest and it was so far removed from what I enjoyed about it. I don’t see it as treating anyone bad. It’s just not compatible with Lucas’ vision of Star Wars.

            “And yes,,,she is unqualified to run the story group at SW. A complete outsider to SW and it’s community. There were a hundred more qualified people to take that spot.

            This is all kind of baseless, too, but whatever you like.

            I don’t get excited for the books the way I used to, but then, I am not 12 anymore.

    “It’s not about Luke anymore.” Was hoping they’d focus on Luke for these three whiles he’s still physically fit. There’s then an infinity for other stories in subsequent years. Hope 9 gets re-written to return focus to him.

            my friend, some of us don´t like cheap fanservice like pop up down right two droids and say cheese to the camera, or fanservice every few minutes the whole movie, or fanservice which dictates whole scenes in the movie. A glimpse here and there and that´s it. Like a saffron. But so far the movies were massively made for fans, not for the story itself. And I´m saying this as a fan of TFA.

            You clearly didn´t see the last two Star Wars movies 🙂 It is well known that Lucas made his movies for him. But Disney is doing the movies for fans in the first place. Just watch the Disney movies, the interviews, celebrations, everything since few years ago. TFA and Rogue One are movies made for fans explicitly.

            I don´t know Hidalgo so I can´t say he´s good or bad person, perhaps he´s so nice to you because you´re a worshipper (I´ve never ever read anything critical from you, just “this is great that is great”) so beeing him I would love fans like you as well 🙂

            I love TFA too. I just hate some scenes, like the stupid unprofesional stormtrooper who didn´t shoot Finn and throw away his gun 🙂 ahh, and Maz Kanata

      He isn’t? He is super nice and funny. I don’t get why people hate him.

        He is rightfully sarcastic and condescending to stupid fan theories. Which is why 90% of Fandom hates him.

    I do wish I liked the look of the Praetorian Guards… but at this point I just don’t. Hoping the movie changes my mind

      not just the look….but the weapons too

    Hard to get excited about Empire magazine covering a new SW movie. Both of their coverage of The Force Awakens and Rogue One was pretty woeful in my opinion, when compared to the likes of EW and Vanity Fair, with all their exclusive photos.

      seems like it’s been heading that war for a while…probably has to do with new connections since the Disney buyout.

    Anyone notice in the first images of our new trio of Rey Finn and Poe, in the picture of rey with the knotted back hair wielding a lightsaber the left side of her forehead (her left) looks like it was beaten/bruised… sort of similar to the kind of reddish mark Luke had after his blow to the head from the wampa (or car accident in the parallel universe)

    I know it looks cool and all, but the picture with Kylo and the guards, wouldn’t the blade of the lightsaber simply continue to dig into the floor if he held that pose?

      Of course, so not only it looks cool, it also looks stupid. Even in SCI-FI/Fantasy movies there are some rules to follow to make it coherent. The same goes to the red guards chinese weapons. What´s the point? Any blaster would do. And only skilled Force users with lightsaber are able to block a plasma blast…sometimes COOL is not enough….well, it is, for the worshippers, of course 🙂

      I thought the same thing. It makes the pose look goofy.

    I read constantly, tons of books a year as well.

    But being 12 and being 36 makes for a different level of excitement, especially considering the old EU was a replacement for movies and now we actually get the movies so…i am okay with it.

      but the movies aren’t as good as the EU material thus far….

        No, they are much better.

    I do like Mark Hamill and his comment about how it is about the next generation which is true. I despise TFA, but I admit it was smart for LF to focus on the new generation. I just wish I found them more compelling. Though, Kylo is cool. And that image, goofy given how a Lightsaber can cut through the floor, is kind of cool.

    Still, I do feel bad for Hamill in how Luke was sidelined in TFA. I mean yeah; I get it they didn’t want to distract from the new characters. But really, his presence needed to be felt more. Because, I saw a really damn good review which posed the question: why does the galaxy even need Luke Skywalker given Rey?

    The answer: mystery boxing the hell out of SWs which I groan. Overall, if RJ wasn’t directing this, the only reason why I’d see it is because of Mark Hamill. But alas; I have a feeling this movie will be good and will blow expectations.

    Because, unlike JJ Abrams, RJ to me is a fantastic director. Episode nine, though; remains to be seen. But I do think that Trevorrow could pull it off. Even if he got the part due to nepotism. But that is Hollywood.

    Still, fascinating interview nevertheless.
