Those present at the Disney shareholders meeting in Denver today were treated to a special surprise - the first bit of footage from Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Los Angeles Times reporter Daniel Miller attended the meeting and got to lay eyes on the footage, which he says featured Rey and Luke Skywalker hanging out at Luke's secluded cliff side hideout. In the footage, Luke finally utters his first piece of dialogue, asking Rey: "Who Are You?" before being handed his iconic lightsaber. As the footage continued, Miller says it featured several epic and exotic locations as well as appearances from Chewbacca, Leia Organa and Finn.
The reporter also reveals that Bob Iger, Walt Disney Co.'s chairman and chief executive, took a moment to remember the late Carrie Fisher. The original Star Wars actress passed away late last year after suffering a heart attack while on a flight into Los Angeles.
Said Iger: "Carrie Fisher has been an iconic part in this franchise from the very beginning," he said. "We all miss her. She has great talent and wit. We’re proud that this movie coming up is part of her legacy.”
Iger would wrap things up by describing The Last Jedi as "a perfect chapter in the iconic Skywalker family drama."
And that sounds good to us!
