Daisy Ridley's Rey leads cast of female warriors in 'Last Jedi'

Daisy Ridley's Rey leads cast of female warriors in 'Last Jedi'

There's no new reveals here: the planets of Canto Bight, Crait, and Ahch-To have popped up in the film's two trailers, but each use real world locations to add to the fantastic variety of worlds we're familiar with in the Star Wars universe. We hope so, but they are also campaigning for Daisy Ridley to be nominated in the Best Actress category for her second go as Rey, according to Awards Circuit.

Make no mistake, Christmas is all well and good - but it's got nothing on the Star Wars: The Last Jedi release week.

But that was almost impossible Saturday night as thousands of fans, reporters and photographers crammed onto the red carpet.

"There aren?t enough words to express how much I LOVED 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi".

Director Rian Johnson introduced the movie by bringing onstage the cast, and paid an emotional tribute to the late Carrie Fisher, the iconic General Leia Organa in the series, who died last December.

We will have to wait to pass judgment for ourselves until December 15th, when Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in our galaxy. "As a girl growing up in London, I obviously knew there was a disparity".

As a child playing in backyards of Denver, Johnson said he would invent Star Wars movies in his head while playing with toys. "The Last Jedi" may reveal her true destiny.

Star Domhnall Gleeson, who plays Gen. Armitage Hux in the film, waited until Saturday night to watch the final product with the franchise's beloved fans.

"'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' is so very different, exciting, surprising".

ABC News and Lucasfilm are both part of parent company Disney.
