    Look what she wrote back in June 2018, just before shooting started.



    That's interesting

    Makes sense from Ben's perspective... Han and Leia are legendary war heroes in the galaxy. Her parents are not "important".

    I have my own dream SW book:

    Set between Episodes III and IV and focusing on Bail Organa, who I think is a character well worth exploring.

    In the early years of the Galactic Empire, only a few people can connect the dots between the disparate Rebel cells spread throughout the galaxy, and Bail is one of them. As The Emperor tightens his grip on power, Bail would find it increasingly more difficult to navigate that underground world while also representing Alderaan in the Galactic Senate. As suspicions against him mount, he decides to publicly declare his opposition to The Emperor, an act which draws unwanted Imperial attention onto Alderaan itself.

    That's all I've got, really. But I'm not even sure that little synopsis lines up with current canon, so go easy on me!

    Ridley's stylist who lives in the U.K. is currently in Santa Monica, home to Bad Robot and its studio, as is TROS's cinematographer, who posted a photo of TROS's camera in use on October 1 at Bad Robot. In the commentary track for The Force Awakens, J. J. Abrams said he did quite a few reshoots at Bad Robot. The scene of young Rey yelling at the ship to come back was also filmed on the roof of Bad Robot.

    Nearly a month ago, a packet of allegations made poster 'WDW Pro' on a Walt Disney Theme Park forum that "Reshoots are continuing for Episode 9 until October. Post production will go right down to the wire. Top executives at Disney have gotten involved with JJ and have given specific, direct orders to make certain changes in an attempt to bolster the entire franchise." (link) Buyer beware of course but it now aligns with what is happening.

    According to Bespin Bulletin's photos, the filming may continue until October 9.

    Christian Alzmann, concept designer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens: "We've seen dead Jedi come back as blue ghosts. Maybe Sith can come back. And maybe there's some all-powerful mastermind Sith that's controlling whatever the dark side is. We did talk a lot about how the final battle frontier for Jedi might be in the spirit realm. So you have to have a bad-guy ghost." (The Art of Star Wars: The Last Jedi)

    Just today, on another site, someone posted cover shots to the upcoming book, Resistance Reborn-- the US version without Wedge, and the Spanish version with Wedge!

    "Jannah
    From an oceanic moon, Jannah leads a band of warriors, ready to charge against the forces of the First Order."

    (FWIW Wookiepedia says Endor has 9 moons and cites Star Wars: Complete Locations as a source.)

    Ultimate Star Wars (2019): "Jannah
    Appearances
    IX
    Species Human
    Homeworld Kef Bir
    Affiliation Resistance-allied

    Jannah is a fierce and principled freedom fighter. She leads a tribe of brave and noble warriors on an ocean moon. Her skills with an energy bow are second to none, and her bravery and athleticism in battle are legendary."

    I'm not sure if a few of these things may have been posted already in various places, but I thought I'd put them all together here...
    Merchandise images from lifesize character cardboard cutouts. Info from various places, mostly the Ultimate Star Wars book leak.
    Not massively spoilerific, but I've hidden just in case people are avoiding stuff like this:
    Klaud
    2962_Klaud_SWIX_46__99363.1570119069.jpg
    Male slug-like alien with yellow skin. Allied to the Resistance and introduced to the cause by Chewbacca. Shares a scene with Snap Wexley.

    Boolio
    2963_Boolio_SWIX_34__66807.1570119326.jpg
    Presumably a Resistance pilot/crewmember, will be included in the TROS Lego Millennium Falcon set.

    Resistance Trooper
    2980_ResistanceTrooper_SWIX_34__49186.1570122544.jpg
    Dominic Monaghan's character, name yet to be revealed.

    Mon Calamari General
    2983_MonCalGeneral_SWIX_28__54489.1570123098.jpg

    D-0
    2977_D-O_SWIX_23__84090.1570122013.jpg
    "This small, rolling droid has been cobbled together from the spare parts in a droidsmith's workshop. Skittish and impressionable, D-0 quickly becomes fixated on BB-8, following his new friend around and trying to copy him." - Ultimate Star Wars book
    "D-0 is kind of a rescue... BB-8 found him, now they're best friends!" - Kathleen Kennedy

    Zorii
    2979_Zorii_SWIX_34__36153.1570122365.jpg
    "As Han Solo once proved, even the scoundrels of the galaxy can take sides when it seems all hope is lost. Zorii Bliss, the tough, no-nonsense leader of the Spice Runners of Kijimi, may find that staying neutral in the war between the First Order and Resistance comes with a high price too." - Ultimate Star Wars book
    She "has a past connection with Poe Dameron". - Keri Russell, D23 panel

    Jannah
    2970_Jannah_SWIX_28__33628.1570120650.jpg
    "All I can really say is the original group is going on this epic, epic adventure together, and Jannah crosses paths with them." - Naomi Ackie
    "Jannah is a fierce and principled freedom fighter from Kef Bir. She leads a tribe of brave and noble warriors on an ocean moon. Her skills with an energy bow are second to none and her bravery and athleticism in battle are legendary." - Ultimate Star Wars book

    And the rest we should be familiar with...
    2969_Rey_SWIX_28__15030.1570120466.jpg 2968_Finn_SWIX_28__21181.1570120281.jpg 2972_Poe_SWIX_28__74381.1570121155.jpg 2974_Chewbacca_SWIX_37x90__71042.1570121489.jpg 2973_C3PO_SWIX_34__01647.1570121321.jpg 2978_R2-D2_SWIX_28__14407.1570122220.jpg 2981_Rose_SWIX_23__32896.1570122708.jpg

    So this is confirmed by
    She "has a past connection with Poe Dameron". - Keri Russell

    More of the same...

    Stormtrooper Infantry, Officer and Sergeant
    2965_StormtrooperInfantry_SWIX_34__91083.1570119712.jpg 2966_StormtrooperOfficer_SWIX_40__50467.1570119894.jpg 2967_StormtrooperSergeant_SWIX_40__42046.1570120110.jpg

    Sith Trooper and Sith Jet Trooper
    2984_SithTrooper_SWIX_28__26980.1570123355.jpg 2982_SithJetTrooper_SWIX_28__96801.1570193770.jpg
    "The First Order Sith troopers are an elite army created with a single purpose - to complete the conquest of the galaxy. They are inspired by and draw their power form a dark and ancient legacy. Sith troopers are fanatically loyal, are highly trained in all forms of combat, and carry a devastating arsenal of heavy weapons." - Ultimate Star Wars book
    "Kylo has an army of elite stormtroopers, They all wear intimidating suits of red armour." - TROS sticker book leak

    Knight of Ren Blaster Warrior
    2976_KnightofRen_SWIX_34__42554.1570121836.jpg
    "The Knights of Ren are Kylo Ren's most deadly and mysterious servants. With their bodies encased in rusty, battered armour and their faces permanently concealed beneath ominous masks - echoing that of the new Supreme Leaser himself - even their species remains a mystery. What is obvious to anyone who witnesses them in action is that their fighting skills and martial prowess are without equal. Each Knight is armed with a lethally effective and unique weapon, suited to either long range or close-quarter combat." - Ultimate Star Wars book

    And some familliar faces...
    2975_KyloRen_SWIX_34__30002.1570121664.jpg 2964_GeneralHux_SWIX_23__56397.1570119519.jpg
    --- Double Post Merged, Oct 6, 2019, Original Post Date: Oct 6, 2019 ---
    Yeah, I think it was revealed at the D23 Expo 2019 panel, and in a more recent interview she said Zorii is "an old fried of Poe's" with a "chequered past".

    https://ew.com/books/2019/10/05/star-wars-force-collector-excerpt-exclusive/ has an answer:
    Karr watched as Kenobi crossed to something that had caught his eye. He pulled from a compartment the very orb Karr was holding. For a moment, Karr felt he was sharing something with the Jedi Master. Not just the vision. Not just a lesson. But a connection.

    “Try and defend yourself against this,” Kenobi suggested.

    “What if I can’t?”

    “The bigger question is, What if you can? Besides, it’s a training remote. It is equipped with nonlethal blasters specifically for those who wish to practice. I’m guessing our pilot handles that blaster better than we imagine.”

    “Unless this belongs to the Wookiee,” Skywalker joked.

    Reminds me of that time, when epic downvotes happened after one poster said Rey looks likes she is holding a light saber Staff that once belonged to a Muun.



    Can confirm: The circle always gets completed.
