Tijdens de jaarlijkse aandeelhoudersbijeenkomst van Disney heeft Disney baas Bob Iger een beetje beeldmateriaal van Star Wars IX laten zien. Hoewel de beelden uiteraard nog niet naar buiten zijn gekomen is er wel over de beelden getwitterd door mensen die er bij waren.
Slashfilm schreef het volgende, gebaseerd op deze tweets:
A Twitter user who identifies himself as an IT professional named Scott Ladewig claims to have seen the footage in question, and he answered some fan questions about what he saw.
You can visit his Twitter page to read his word-for-word description, but in the interest of not cluttering up this page with embedded tweets, I’ll just describe what he says.
In an abandoned hangar, there’s a blockade runner. In a starship hangar, an explosion knocks Stormtroopers around. In a bright white room which might be the interior of a Rebel blockade ship or perhaps something akin to Darth Vader’s meditation chamber, Kylo Ren looks down at a box that opens to reveal the charred remains of Vader’s helmet. Notably, Kylo is not wearing his own helmet and he looked “pretty much the same” as he did in The Last Jedi.
In the Millennium Falcon cockpit, Rey, Finn, and Poe share the screen with another character who couldn’t be identified. There’s a brief look at Billy Dee Williams‘ Lando Calrissian, whom we haven’t seen since 1983’s Return of the Jedi. Finn is seen in the abandoned-looking interior of a ship. Rey holds Chewbacca’s bowcaster, and separately, walks through an alien marketplace.
As far as behind the scenes looks, he could only recall a scene that showed actress Daisy Ridley jumping and doing a somersault high up in the air (attached to wires) with a lightsaber.
