New posters and stills of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” have surfaced online. The pictures provide hints about the characters and events in the upcoming film.

Two posters can be seen at Comic Book. The first is something typical from the franchise. There are the two sides of the conflict: the First Order and the Resistance, and right in the middle is the hero with a lightsaber. The protagonist of the new trilogy is Rey (Daisy Ridley).

The second poster is more interesting. Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is kneeling with his crossguard lightsaber. He seems to have fixed his weapon after it was struck in “Force Awakens.” The beam appears to be more stable now after being repaired.

Standing behind Kylo Ren are Snoke’s (Adam Driver) Praetorian Guards. Although the uniform of the guards are full red, there are minor distinctions on the helmets and the kind of weapon each one of them carries. In the background of this poster, Supreme Leader’s face looms over everyone else.

Meanwhile, a new set of stills from the movie have been posted on Entertainment Weekly. The first shows Rey interacting with Luke (Mark Hamill) near a stone hut that appears to be his home. Then there’s a shot of Finn (John Boyega) with the new character Rose (Kelly Marie Tran). There’s another picture of the Praetorian Guards in red and a behind-the-scenes picture of Carrie Fisher (Leia). Benicio Del Toro (DJ) can also be seen in one of these images.

A picture of Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) inside the Millennium Falcon shows a Prog, which is native to Ahch-To. It looks like some of these bird-like creatures will be leaving the planet in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” along with the heroes. The report also claims that Rey will find out more about her history and family during her stay with the Jedi master.
