Star Wars: Explaining Jedi: Fallen Order’s Villain

The upcoming video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order will introduce Star Wars fans to a brand new hero named Cal Kestis, one of the few Jedi to survive the events of Revenge of the Sith. But it turns out the game’s main villain is someone we’ve met before. Fallen Order will pit players against Second Sister, a member of the Jedi-slaying order known as the Inquisitorius.

If you’re not familiar with Second Sister and her fellow Inquisitors, here’s everything you need to know about this branch of the Star Wars mythos before playing Fallen Order.

Adam Driver Had No Problem with That Shirtless Scene in Star Wars: The Last Jedi: ‘He Knew He Looked Good’

Warning: SPOILERS ahead for those who have NOT yet seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Proceed with caution!

After 40 years of Star Wars films, the franchise’s loyal fanbase have come to expect and rely on seeing certain elements in each new film. Things like: lightsaber battles, The Force, cute creatures, Droids, etc.

One of the scenes that fans did not expect to see in Star Wars: The Last Jedi is what writer/director Rian Johnson calls its “beefcake” moment. i.e. when, during one of their surprisingly intimate, Force-enhanced, mind-over-matter-time-and-space conversations, Adam Driver‘s Kylo Ren surprises Daisy Ridley‘s Rey by appearing shirtless.

Rey’s startled reaction — a request that he cover himself with a towel or something — is as appropriate as it is hilarious, for the characters and the audience. But how did we get here, exactly? PEOPLE recently caught up with Johnson to ask him how that scene came to be and whether or not Driver was shy about that “beefcake” moment.

 

“It’s all about those Force connection scenes,” Johnson says. “The keyword being intimacy. And the idea that this was a way to just, why not step that up? The idea that, what’s even more uncomfortable having a conversation face to face with a person you don’t want to, is if they’re half-naked during it, while you’re having to do it. And so it was just another way of kind of disrobing Kylo literally and figuratively a little bit more, and pushing that sense of these conversations becoming increasingly more intimate.”

Not to mention the fact that by this point during filming, Driver’s physique was particularly photogenic.

“Adam looks so damn good because he’d been training hardcore for the past six months for those fight scenes. I’m like, ‘Eh. He looks so good. We should put him up there.’ ”

And how did Driver feel about his beefcake moment? Was he shy about it?

“No, no, he’s good. He’s great,” assures Johnson. “He knew he looked good.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now playing in theaters everywhere.

Star Wars: Gwendoline Christie on Going ‘Deeper’ with Captain Phasma in The Last Jedi

Captain Phasma may finally get to show why she’s the shiniest of Stormtroopers in The Last Jedi.

The character is back with a vengeance in Episode VIII and literally ready to fight. Phasma’s signature armor “was redesigned and made for movement,” says Gwendoline Christie, the 6-foot-3 Game of Thrones knight who has a gift for playing towering fighters. “It has been completely made-to-measure for me, and every part of my body, to make it as flexible as possible.”

Watch our full Star Wars: The Last Jedi special, streaming now on PeopleTV! Download the PeopleTV app on your favorite device or go to PEOPLE.com/peopletv.

That change is already clear in The Last Jedi scenes of Phasma’s rematch with her nemesis Finn (John Boyega), who forced her to shut down the shields to Starkiller Base near the end of The Force Awakens. Phasma moves fast and fierce.

But this time, Christie hints that the audience will see more of what’s under all that chrome in a “deeper” side of Phasma (could the character simply be a misunderstood phantom menace?).

“The dark side has very little humanity and empathy, so I’m looking forward to seeing the human ,” she says.

Will we see the actual human in Phasma, with Christie unmasked on screen? That’s difficult to see since always in motion the future is.

But for more clues to Episode VIII, pick up PEOPLE’s new special issue Star Wars: The Ultimate Guide to The Last Jedi (on newsstands now) and watch the exclusive PeopleTV special.

The Last Jedi is now in theaters.

Out of This World: Cast Sparkles on the Red Carpet at Star Wars: The Last Jedi Premiere

There’s no dark side to this red carpet.

The ladies of Star Wars: The Last Jedi came out in full force for the movie’s world premiere at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles on Saturday, dazzling in looks inspired by the beloved series.

Daisy Ridley, who again plays Rey in the latest installment, took the celestial theme literally, donning a dark strapless Monse dress adored with sequins and white star embellishments. Starting at the thigh, the 25-year-old’s floor-length dress became fringe — which showed off glimpses of her legs and strappy metallic heels as she made her way into the screening.

And because Lupita Nyong’o voices the animated Maz Kanata, the actress took full advantage of showing her face — and her legs! — at the movie’s premiere. The Oscar-winner turned heads in a seafoam green dress by Halpern. The strapless number featured a high slit that flaunted her frame — and a touch of purple lipstick sealed the deal.

Billie Lourd was a can’t-miss in metallic, donning a sleeveless silver gown on the red carpet. Her hair was styled in an elaborate up-do, reminiscent of a look her late mother Carrie Fisher wore in The Force Awakens.

Her turn in The Last Jedi marks the final appearance in the iconic franchise for Fisher, who wrapped filming for the movie last year prior to her December 2016 death. Lourd, who plays Lieutenant Connix, walked the red carpet alongside her father, Hollywood talent agent Bryan Lourd.

Laura Dern traded her character’s purple hair for her signature blonde locks at the premiere. The new addition to the Star Wars family stepped out in a strapless black lace dress.

Gwendoline Christie didn’t let her 6’3″ frame stop her from rocking some beige heels along with her Gucci gown. The silver dress with long-sleeves featured a high slit for Captain Phasma to give a peek of what’s under her armor.

The eighth Star Wars installment also sees the return of Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson and Andy Serkis.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters Dec. 15.
