As expected, a behind the scenes video on the making of Star Wars: The Last Jedi was unveiled over the weekend at Anaheim’s D23 Expo. Though it’s great to see Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver sharpening their Jedi skills in the clip, the best moment came from late actress Carrie Fisher, who reflected on the transcendence of the Star Wars universe.
“It’s about family,” said Fisher. “And that’s what’s so powerful about it.”
Regulars Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, and Gwendoline Christie were part of the D23 experience, and joining them on stage were Star Wars newcomers Laura Dern (Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo), Kelly Marie Tran (Resistance mechanic Rose), and Benicio Del Toro (as a character named D.J.).
