D23 Expo draws to a close…

As expected, Star Wars news from D23 Expo 2017 slowed to a trickle on Sunday, July 16, as the convention switched to more traditional, Disney-centric fare. However, we thought we’d take advantage of the relative quiet to catch up with the weekend’s news before we move on to our own “regularly scheduled programming.”

Moments, Tweets, and Instagrams

On Sunday, Good Morning America tweeted out nine backstage interview with the cast and crew of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. While much of the collection is simply humorous, Director Rian Johnson, Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, and Gwendoline Chrisie offer a few minor nuggets on which to spectulate.
