The Final Jedi brings Laura Dern into the Star Wars universe – however you would not understand it from the trailers, which have largely missed her character.
So Dern is taking issues into her personal arms. (With the studio’s approval, in fact.)
The actress stopped by Ellen this week to remind viewers that she’ll be enjoying Vice Admiral Holdo within the new film. She’s received a photograph to show it and all the things!
Hmm, is that BB-9E – a.okay.a. evil BB-Eight – we spy within the nook there?
Holdo is a high-ranking Resistance officer who seems to have a history with Basic Leia Organa. What precisely which means, you will have to attend and see. However Dern remembers Carrie Fisher fondly, describing her as “probably the most wildly forthright and unbelievable genuine being.”
Watch Dern’s Ellen look under:
Star Wars: The Final Jedi is in theaters December 15.
