Let’s Just Take Some Time to Appreciate These Incredible Special Effects

When Star Wars: The Force Awakens was in production, much was made of the movie's commitment to honor the feel of the originals by using practical effects and puppetry when possible. There was still plenty of CGI, but the added touch of actually building something like BB-8 went a long way towards generating the right feel for the movie. The Last Jedi is set to do the same thing with some new additions, and it's not the only movie showing off impressive visual effects.

We've heard before that details on Supreme Leader Snoke, the evil overlord of the new Star Wars trilogy, will be fairly light in The Last Jedi, though the character will feature more prominently in the upcoming sequel.

Rian Johnson Is Happy to Keep Us All Guessing About The Last Jedi

Star Wars is a franchise that's no stranger to big twists. The Empire Strikes Back even pulled a little fake-out with Yoda before dropping one of the most famous movie twists of all time, Return of the Jedi returned to that same well with Luke and Leia, and The Force Awakens, pulled a similar trick in the reveal of Kylo Ren's true identity. Rian Johnson, director of The Last Jedi, is enjoying fan anticipation of future surprises.

Mark Hamill Can’t Keep His Tweeting Mouth Shut About the Next Last Jedi Trailer

It's apparently gotten to the point that trailer releases are as big a deal as film releases. At least, that's what you'd think from the level of secrecy Disney/Lucasfilm have surrounding every single marketing move. Not even Mark Hamill being Luke Skywalker leaves him exempt from the consequences of the Mouse House.

Ever since Colin Trevorrow was fired from directing Star Wars: Episode IX for being a douche (basically), fans have been waiting for word on which director will close out this third trilogy of the Skywalker saga.

Colin Trevorrow Reportedly Fired From Star Wars for the Most Obvious Reason

Former Star Wars: Episode IX Director Colin Trevorrow was whisked in on the back of his sudden, dinosaur-fueled rise to fame, but it's hard to say that his departure was surprising. Not only have plenty of other directors met similar fates at the hands of Lucasfilm, but Trevorrow's only other major film to speak of was resoundingly panned. But new word on the real reason for his removal is at once a new piece of the puzzle and wholly unsurprising.
