We got a lot of news, trailers and other cool things from the Star Wars celebration this weekend. Here’s my list for the most important things we saw/heard.
The Last Jedi
-We got the first teaser. It was phenomenal. Check out my breakdown of it.
-Kelly Marie Tran was revealed to be the biggest new character. Her character, Rose, is a maintenance worker for the Resistance. Rian Johnson said that the entire point of Rose is to prove that anyone can be a hero.
-Kathleen Kennedy confirmed that Leia will have a big part in The Last Jedi, but she will not be in Episode IX
-Mark Hamill stated that there is still a lot of mystery to what happened to Luke after Return of the Jedi.
-Daisy Ridley said that it’s going to be difficult for Rey to react to what Luke is like as it’s never easy to meet your heroes. And that Luke might not want to train Rey at first.
-John Boyega said that Finn is struggling to find his place. The big question is if he continues to fight with the Resistance or just keep running from the First Order.
-Rian Johnson said that despite the destruction of the Starkiller base, the First Order are moving forward strongly.
-Billy Dee Williams confirmed that he will not be in The Last Jedi, which means that sadly Lando will not be returning.
-Hamill also joked about Rey being Luke’s daughter by introducing Daisy Ridley as his daughter. But then again Hamill said that he lies all the time.
-Star Wars Rebels will end after season 4. And we got a trailer for the new season.
-We’re getting a new animated series called Forces of Destiny some time in the future. The two-part series will include the likes of Rey, Ashoka Tano, Princess Leia, Sabine Wren, Jyn Erso and narrating the story, Maz Kanata

-Campaign will feature a new character, Imperial officer Iden Versio as the main character. As she is looking to avenge the Emperor, who was killed by the Rebels. You will also be able to play with some of the most popular heroes, such as Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren.
