EW have bagged some new The Last Jedi photos, and boy are they revealing. Meet the new characters below.
New The Last Jedi images arrive online – and they are awesome!
There’s nothing that gets me going quite like a few Star Wars: The Last Jedi images, and today my source of pornography is Entertainment Weekly. The U.S. entertainment magazine have released a whole bunch of new photos from the upcoming Star Wars sequel, which is arriving in cinemas this coming December.
The great thing about these new images is that they introduce some cut, fluffy new characters named the Porgs, a prominent part of the new picture. There’s also some “fish-bird” aliens called “The Caretakers”, which you can also see below. The film’s director, Rian Johnson, spoke with the outlet about the new creatures.
“They’ve been there for thousands of years, and they essentially keep up the structures on the island,” Johnson says. “They’re all female, and I wanted them to feel like a remote sort of little nunnery. Neal Scanlan’s crew designed them, and costume designer Michael Kaplan made these working clothes that also reflected sort of a nun-like, spartan sort of existence.”
Johnson also says we can expect to see more for ANdy Serkis’ Supreme Leader Snoke in the new instalment.
“We will see more of him, and Andy Serkis will get to do much more in this film than he did in the last one,” Johnson says. “And that guy is just a force of nature.”
Check out the Porgs in the first image below, and the Caretakers in the image that follows.
There is a lot more going on in this fantastic spread from EW’s new issue, so check it out when it hits newsstands this week.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in cinemas on December 15th, 2017.
