'The Last Jedi' Footage Screened for Disney Shareholders

By: Dominic Jones

Outside of a short teaser over a year ago, no footage of Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi has been screened publicly.  While there is still no footage available for public consumption, some footage was screened for Disney Investors at today's Disney Shareholders Conference.  Reporter for The LA Times Daniel Miller was in attendance and live tweeted the event, sharing descriptions of what was seen.  Check them out below,

That's some pretty interesting descriptions.  I wouldn't be surprised to learn that this is a version of a trailer or sizzle reel we may be seeing next month at Star Wars Celebration Orlando.  It really hits a lot of the notes that fans would be excited about (Rey in action, Luke speaking, the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia, Finn back in action, etc.) and would certainly get a roaring reception at Celebration and online if it were to be released.  The only thing that seems to be missing a little bit of Dark Side action, like a first look at Kylo Ren or Snoke, but there is still plenty of time to get to that.

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15th.  The film is written and directed by Rian Johnson and stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, and Carrie Fisher.
