'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Will Not Include A Han/Leia Style Romance

"Because I think of her in the present tense".

Laura Dern is also pictured with bubblegum-pink hair as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, another newcomer to the series. We now know Finn will light off on another mission in "The Last Jedi", teaming up with Kelly Marie Tran's Rose Tico, one of the resistance's trusty mechanics.

The late actress posed as the princess-turned-general for an issue promoting Star Wars: The Last Jedi and celebrating the 40th anniversary of Star Wars (1977). On top of a fantastic portrait/behind-the-scenes gallery, VF writer David Kamp had the opportunity to sit down with the stars Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill as well as the film's director, Rian Johnson.

Speculation about Leia's role in the film has been rife since the passing of Carrie Fisher in December. Each of these news nuggets fills in some blanks about the upcoming blockbuster, and we're hungry for as many as we can get.

Benicio Del Toro will be playing a "shady character" who is never named in the movie, but whom everyone on set referred to as "DJ".

THAAD Missile Defense System Sends Chinese Tourists to South Korea Packing
Since Moon Jae-in took office on May 10, signs have emerged that Beijing and Seoul are seeking to reconcile their differences and fix damaged relations caused by the THAAD dispute.

Rose and Finn's mission involves a visit to the "glittering casino city" called Canto Bight, described by Johnson as "a Star Wars Monte Carlo-type environment, a little James Bond-ish, a little To Catch a Thief". "You'll see-there's a reason why we call him DJ", Johnson says.

Spawn Adam Driver, in character as Kylo Ren, Han Solo's son and slayer, wields a crossguard lightsaber.

I remember-and forgive me, I'm going to drop the f-bomb, but that's just Carrie-she said, "Ah, boohoo, who f******' cares?"

Like many facets of the Star Wars universe, more information about Supreme Leader Snoke has been released in canonical books that have been released since The Force Awakens came out in 2015. A particular standout features Hamill and Fisher in costume together.

The new movie will be released (finally) on December 15 this year, and will apparently reveal a 'shocking truth'.
