Saying we received some exciting Star Wars news from D23 Expo through two days of the convention would be quite an understatement. One thing we can say for certain is director Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi stole the show, at least from the perspective of this Star Wars fan.

From the special BTS footage (which I personally did not watch due to spoilers) to the collection of new character teaser posters, D23 Expo had no shortage of Episode VIII content for fans to devour.

Our good friend Dan Brooks over at provides us with a recap of all the news pertaining to The Last Jedi that went down at D23 Expo, including several quotes from Johnson about the cast members…and a jig he and Daisy Ridley shared once filming had completed on location in Ireland.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi writer/director Rian Johnson made a special appearance today at D23, bringing some friends and a few surprises. Here are some of the highlights.
