So far, we've seen a few tantalizing glimpses of Luke Skywalker's new animals friends in Stars Wars: The Last Jedi, but other than the fact that they're called porgs, that they're very cute, and that we should not think of them as Ewoks, we haven't gotten a very good look at the furry space penguins just yet. The Oscar-winning actor, who does a fine job of balancing dramatic fare like Sicario with appearances in blockbusters like Guardians of the Galaxy, was cast in Star Wars: The Last Jedi a long time ago...but we still don't know who he's playing.

It's had to imagine they won't utilize Poe in a very important role with the Alliance. The flick hits theaters on December 15.
There's no mistaking the classic TIE design even when it's been revamped and reconditioned. During his interview with EW, Oscar Issac remembered a bittersweet memory from the set that is touching and heartbreaking.
Similar to Rey's parentage, Snoke is here to serve a function in the story. He's gone into exile since then and one of his students, his nephew Ben Solo, is now an agent of the dark side.
