One of the biggest movies of the year, Star Wars: The Last Jedi was almost guaranteed to have a massive presence at the D23 Expo this weekend. The Mouse House sure as hell didn't disappoint, not only wheeling out some of the big time cast members, but also premiering a new behind-the-scenes video of the highly anticipated sequel. There was plenty of new footage to be glimpsed in the almost three minutes long video, and tons of teases for fans to decipher. Luckily, we're here to help you with that part.
Because there's just so much to gawk at in the behind-the-scenes video, we've assembled this handy list of some the best moments from the footage. In addition to seeing our best looks yet at new characters played by Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro, there are also some awesome action beats. Take a look at the 9 best moments from the new Last Jedi video in no particular order.
First Shot Of Laura Dern
Jurassic Park's Laura Dern will be playing Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, a politician with quite the sense of style. We've already seen Dern's pink colored character in some screenshots, but this is our first time seeing her on film. Apparently, Holdo is something of a rival to Leia, whose politics and ambition differ greatly from her.
First Shot of Benicio Del Toro
Benicio Del Toro must not have gotten his fill of space in Guardians of the Galaxy. His character in The Last Jedi is only known as DJ (may or may not be his real name) and he is described as a "shifty" character with uncertain alliances. He can be glimpsed for the first time on footage in the behind-the-scenes video.
