'Star Wars: The Last Jedi': Maz Kanata Will Have a Smaller Role

The final reveal from EW finally addresses a character we've seen very little of in marketing for The Last Jedi - Maz Kanata.

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. The Force Awakens really made a missed opportunity - Phasma could have been a good villain if she was just given a chance to show off her skills as a chrometrooper and a captain. "While I was figuring out what her deal was going to be in this film, it's one of the things I talked about with Carrie before I started writing: where the character would go". "And I think it's important to her in terms of what is her place in all of this?"

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

Her character to some degree or another has been defined by loss through this whole saga, starting with the loss of her home planet. She was told in the last movie that the answer's not in the past; it's looking forward. Besides, even Yoda, who's role Maz's is understandably compared to, ultimately didn't have much screentime in Empire Strikes Back, and even less in Return of the Jedi, yet his mark was clearly left on the franchise.

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