Maz Kanata Has Smaller Role In 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'

"But she's showing up on this island to talk to this hero from the past".

The director says he didn't make the film with closure in mind, for Leia, so we'll be waiting until Episode IX to see how Colin Trevorrow will send her off, without Fisher being onscreen.

Last Jedi director Rian Johnson tells the magazine in this final run, Leia is still in command of the Resistance, but "cut off", after the Republic was nearly completely destroyed in 2015's The Force Awakens by the powerful First Order weapon Starkiller Base. While the motion capture character brought to life by Lupita Nyong'o only made her first appearance in 2015's The Force Awakens, it was immediately clear she held a significant place in the larger Star Wars story.

Johnson also said he hopes this final film leaves Leia and all Star Wars fans satisfied.

"She has a smaller part in this than she has in The Force Awakens, but it's a really fun part, and Lupita is so awesome, I'm just happy I got to work with her..."

First Midwest Bank Trust Division Invests $450000 in Lamar Advertising Company (LAMR)
The sale was disclosed in a document filed with the Securities & Exchange Commission, which is available through this link . Finally, SPC Financial Inc. bought a new position in shares of Lamar Advertising during the second quarter worth $221,000.

Her character to some degree or another has been defined by loss through this whole saga, starting with the loss of her home planet. "This was my first time working with mo-cap characters and working with actors in that way, I feel like I got such an incredible education watching Lupita work".

When you consider that Maz doesn't have a lot of screentime in The Force Awakens, I can only imagine that she's in one or two scenes tops in The Last Jedi, which is fine.

However, Maz will have a smaller role in the upcoming film.

Answers will come when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15, 2017.
