    The Last Jedi coverage continues over at EW, as Anthony Breznican brings us information about the elusive, mystical crystal foxes of Crait. We learn what they are called, and how they were brought to life in the film.







    The crystal fox is known as a vulptex. A pack of them is referred to as vulptices.



    As Breznican explains in the Entertainment Weekly piece, the foxes are inhabitants of the planet Crait, since deserted by the Rebellion against the Empire years ago. As many of you may know the new comic 'Storms of Crait', shows Luke and Leia on the one time Rebel base during the time of the original trilogy.



    As Ian Malcolm states in Jurassic Park, 'life finds a way.' The vulptices would be a perfect example of this, as Breznican explains their ability to live and prosper in an otherwise unlivable world:




    INSPIRATION FOR THEIR DESIGN AND NAME



    The head of Lucasfilm's creature workshop, Neal Scanlan, explained how they came to create these beautiful creatures:
    [​IMG]



    The most interesting part about how this creature came to fruition is the old-school manner in which they tangibly conceptualized it:
    [​IMG]



    That sounds like something right out of a documentary about the making of 1983's Return of the Jedi!



    The name for the foxes was created by Lucasfilm story group's Pablo Hidalgo, who put a Star Wars-ish verbiage spin on the term 'vulpes', Latin for 'fox'.



    [​IMG]



    It sounds like the vulptices will serve more than as beautiful scene-filling, depth-adding creatures, they will actually wind up aiding the Resistance fighters, whether that be inadvertently or willingly:

    We will have more from Breznican's EW coverage of The Last Jedi later today, which we'll update right here so stay tuned!









    UPDATE!





    Kelly Marie Tran's Dream Realized 



    Anthony Breznican's coverage of The Last Jedi continues <a style='color: #ffcc00;' href='http://ew.com/movies/2017/11/20/kelly-marie-tran-star-wars-the-last-jedi/?utm_campaign=entertainmentweekly&amp;utm_source=twitter.com&amp;utm_medium=social&amp;xid=entertainment-weekly_socialflow_twitter' rel='noopener']here[/url]. This time focusing on the actor, instead of the character, and you'll understand why!



    [​IMG]



    Struggling to break through in an almost impossible industry, Kelly Marie Tran was working at a typical office job when she finally got the news that changed everything.

    Imagine having to go back to taking calls for a company at a 9-to-5 office job after hearing you will be in Star Wars? I wouldn't be able to think. Kudos to her for even going back! It evidently took a while for it all to really hit Tran even after production was underway, still unsure of her status or life-changing role's effect on her, but as Breznican perfectly points out, she was breaking ground, perhaps without initially even realizing it, nor it's massive impact:

    Tran explains how she was almost (and sadly) used to the fact that she didn't often see herself represented in pop culture.
    [​IMG]



    We are looking forward to seeing Kelly Marie Tran's Rose Tico in The Last Jedi, being a part of the Resistance, joining Finn on what looks to be a fun adventure in the middle chapter of this trilogy!







    UPDATE 2!



    Anthony Breznican's Entertainment Weekly coverage of The Last Jedi rolls on!



    Although the Resistance rocked the First Order with a big blow, destroying the Starkiller base, we can't forget that before it met its demise, Starkiller destroyed several planets of the New Republic, including its capital. The Republic is DECIMATED, and it appears new leadership is on its way to make some changes. Enter Laura Dern's Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo:
    [​IMG] Star Wars: The Last Jedi



    Oscar Isaac explains the complicated relationship he has with Holdo, being that he is, and has always been, a faithful supporter of his General, Leia Organa. This can obviously lead to some tension between a devoted fighter and a new leader.



    [​IMG]

    It certainly seems as though Holdo is not showing up to make friends, well at least not to worry about people liking her anyway. She is there for business, business being doing what she feels is necessary to keep the Resistance alive against the First Order:
    [​IMG]



    Holdo certainly seems like she is a more measured leader, thinking about strategy and how to handle things less than being active or reactionary. We know Poe likes to 'blow stuff up' and get into the mix, so he may not gel well with her reserved approach, which we are assuming is in place in a direct contrast to tactics Poe is familiar with under Leia's leadership.

    We know that Holdo has known Leia since they were kids from Claudia Gray's novel Leia: Princess of Alderaan, so we shouldn't take this as some brand new brash leader stepping in to change and undermine Leia. That's not the plot device here. No this is someone who has actually followed Leia's lead in the past, but perhaps due to recent events a shift in policy, or at least another voice is necessary, and this is something Poe and the rest of the Resistance will have to adjust towards.



    [​IMG]



    Although Holdo has known Leia and followed her lead over the years, as Breznican puts it:

    We expect more EW coverage from Anthony Breznican tomorrow, so stay tuned!

    Vulpix? Well, both originate from the same word - vulpes, which is a Latin word for a fox.

    I hope Snoke can't send a hologram to the bathroom. He seems to be able to send one anywhere.

    Snoke on loud speaker"Hux I need to see you. Very important. And hurry, boy!"

    Hux on the toilet speaks into his walkie talkie thingy"I'm busy running some data to find the next planet to destroy, sir.

    Snoke appears on hologram in the bathroom stall"I said hurry you liar! Now pull up your pants and get to my room!"

    I've been wondering if the foxes make a distinct sound as they move, and if all the findings of the straw experiment were taken into consideration, they actually do. I bet they sound like wind chimes!

    I thought that was pretty hilarious. I don't know how you got a dislike there bud.

    I can almost imagine them having a light, tinkling sound as their crystal hairs bump into each other as they run. Similiiar to the sound when a crystal chandelier may move and the crystals bump into each other.
