Mark Hamill, Rian Johnson tell fans to avoid 'The Last Jedi' marketing
UPI News Service, 08/11/2017
Mark Hamill and director Rian Johnson have urged fans to avoid upcoming marketing for the next entry in the Star Wars saga, The Last Jedi due to spoilers.
"More stuff is coming, that's the nature of the beast. But I fully endorse avoiding everything you can from now till December!" Johnson wrote on Twitter Thursday when responding to a fan who mentioned how he felt fans know enough about The Last Jedi.
"I fully endorse this @rianjohnson endorsement:
AVOID EVERYTHING YOU CAN FROM NOW TILL DECEMBER!!!!! #WordsOfWisdom #WellWorthWaitingForVIII," added Hamill in response.
So far, only one teaser trailer has been released for the film that was light on plot points. The clip, released in April, featured the main stars of the film and Rey training with Luke Skywalker.
"I know only one truth, it's time for the Jedi to end," Hamill says in the teaser.
In July during Disney's D23 Expo, a behind-the-scenes video of The Last Jedi was released that was also light on plot points.
Burning questions surrounding the sequel include Rey's origin, the origin behind First Order leader Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) and the identity behind Benicio del Toro's character, among others.
