Though “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is months away from arriving in theaters, we may be getting closer to seeing some official footage from the eighth installment in the galactic franchise. Director Rian Johnson shared a black and white image of First Order Stormtroopers on his Tumblr with the message, “We’re coming to Orlando for a Star Wars Celebration panel on April 14th, and I cannot wait. See you there!”
Star Wars Celebration will run from April 13 – 16 in Orlando, FL and boasts “Star Wars” panels and other special events. Though it seems likely that “The Last Jedi’s” first teaser trailer will debut there, no announcement has yet been made. The April 14th panel that Johnson referred to will also host Kathleen Kennedy, the President of Lucasfilm.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, “The Last Jedi,” stars returning actors Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie and Andy Serkis, and is set to open on December 15.
