‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Image Reveals New Look at Laura Dern (Plus Another BB Droid!)
The recent trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi gave us a pretty hefty preview of the latest chapter in the saga, but amid all that new footage, a few things were missing — chiefly Laura Dern, who plays the violet-haired Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo (what a name!). We’ve seen Dern in costume before, but a new image circulating online gives us a fresh sneak peek at her exciting Star Wars character…and reveals another BB unit.
Dern’s character was first revealed in that gorgeous Vanity Fair spread a while back, followed by a brief sneak peek in the reel that was shown at Star Wars Celebration over the summer. Below is the full version of the new look at Holdo, which debuted online courtesy of The Ellen Show, where Dern dropped by to discuss her role in the film.
Holdo is pictured at a Resistance meeting with someone who looks a bit like Oscar Isaac’s Poe Dameron there in the bottom left corner. Featured a little more prominently behind Holdo and to the left is another BB unit — this one is called 2BB-2 (no relation to 2 Fast 2 Furious).
It looks like we’ll meet a couple more BB droids in The Last Jedi, including BB-4 (he looks like he’s seen some s—t, man) and the evil BB-9E. (As if BBs can be evil. No way.)
The sequel features returning stars Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o, and Andy Serkis, along with Star Wars newcomer Benicio Del Toro. The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15.
