Entertainment Weekly released this week their Fall Movie Preview issue and, of course, The Last Jedi is featured on cover + 7 pages inside. The EW website also has published a large article on Carrie Fisher and her final role as general Leia Organa.
They also released some new promotional images, including a beautiful one with Oscar Isaac as Poe. The article published talks a lot about the bond between the Resistance’s best fighter pilot and Carrie Fisher’s General Leia Organa.
“Poe is in some ways a surrogate son for Leia,” Isaac tells EW. “But also I think she sees in him the potential for a truly great leader of the Resistance and beyond.”
“Poe’s arc is one of evolving from a heroic soldier to a seasoned leader, to see beyond the single-mindedness of winning the battle to the larger picture of the future of the galaxy,” Isaac says. “I think Leia knows she won’t be around forever and she, with tough love, wants to push Poe to be more than the badass pilot, to temper his heroic impulses with wisdom and clarity.”
