Disney treated the press to a secret Star Wars press junket on Sunday, which featured not only a full cast panel discussion but also an impressive compendium of costumes, photographs, and Star Wars merchandise.
The main purpose of the junket was interviews along with a big press conference. The cast and director assembled to talk about the upcoming film, which will be the longest Star Wars movie to date.
Learning more about The Last Jedi is cool and all, but the junket was also a chance for attendees to geek out over original costumes and photographs from behind the scenes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Look at Rey and Kylo Ren! They look just like siblings!
This Praetorian costumes are on-point, though we hope it has airholes.
Among the previewed costumes was that of General Leia Organa, who will appear for the last time as portrayed by the late Carrie Fisher.
Up close, General Organa’s costume boasts intense detail and truly regal jewelry – perhaps a nod to her royal lineage.
Additionally, the event included Rian Johnson’s personal set photos from production on The Last Jedi. Impressively, no one stole the black-and-white print of Oscar Isaac sipping coffee.
Rian Johnson revealed he may publish a book of his black and white photos from his personal camera documenting the creation of #TheLastJedi, an idea we fully support! #StarWars Someone make this happen. Just look at these beauties…@starwars @rianjohnson @StarWarsUK pic.twitter.com/K9FKwXUcpg

Original costumes are fine to display, but the junket also had new merchandise that will be available for purchase in conjunction with the film’s release. Look at little Poe in his jacket! Look at R2-D2… wearing a crown!
After speaking to the press, the cast filed out in style.
