Three new videos featuring never-before-seen footage from Star Wars: The Last Jedi are being previewed online in advance of the film’s release on Blu-ray and DVD later this month. In the first, Daisy Ridley takes us behind-the-scenes and discusses her character, Rey. The second features Oscar Isaac and his scenes with Carrie Fisher, and the last gives us a look at Andy Serkis in his mo-cap suit bringing the menacing Supreme Leader Snoke to life.
Check out all three below:
From E! News:
In never-before-seen footage, Rey (Ridley) harnesses the Force on the deserted island of Ahch-To, where she struggles to find the balance between the Dark and the Light. “Something inside me has always been there,” she says, “and now it’s awake.” Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) offers little help, due to his issues with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), leaving Rey to her own devices.
As Ridley explains in one of the bonus features (available on Blu-ray March 27), “She doesn’t see herself as this thing. People talk about her potential and all this stuff, and she says, you know, ‘I’m scared about what I’m feeling.’ What I’ve always loved about her is that she tries to see the good in things and she’s hopeful, and she hopes that what she thinks is there is there.” Watch the clip to see what writer/director Rian Johnson has to say about Rey’s internal conflict.
Andy Serkis talking about how he approaches Snoke to EW.com:
I’ve always approached him as someone who is obviously in a position of supreme power, but actually, there is a level of vulnerability about the character. The way that his face is caved in, he has those deep scarifications. His skull’s almost been crushed.
I take my cues from very much his bone structure, his physiognomy, his gimletty eyes. Again it’s all drawn from trying to breathe life into a character by being inspired by the look of it too, by the mask that you’re playing.
And a clip featuring Rian Johnson, Oscar Isaac, and Carrie Fisher provided to People.com:
“The theme of mentors runs through this whole series and to me it made a lot of sense that Leia would be that to Poe,” Johnson adds, referring to the mentor role Fisher’s Leia played in the last Star Wars film.
Fisher herself agrees, adding that Dameron reminded her of another pilot in the Star Wars universe.
“Poe is her protege and in a way, I think she thinks of him as Han,” Fisher says. “He’s very dominating and he doesn’t listen to her so we have some moments together.”
