Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy promises 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' will answer questions in 'wonderfully provocative way'

Last week Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy gave us some insight into the 10-year plan for the "Star Wars" franchise.

Now in an extended interview with "The Star Wars Show," Kennedy gives a bit more on "The Last Jedi" and its director Rian Johnson.

"He wrote the script, which I'm sure a lot of people don't necessarily realize," Kennedy said of Johnson. "I think it's something that he thought about for a long time before he ever put pen to paper. And then he went off. I remember he was driving in a snowstorm up in the mountains putting the final touches on the script and then he came back just bubbling over with ideas and excitement.

"So he has this interesting way that he works where he needs that time alone and then he's so incredibly collaborative when he comes into the process of making a movie."

Kennedy also confirmed that there will be some major revelations in "Last Jedi," something fans won't see coming.

"He doesn't answer all the questions," said Kennedy. "I will say that up front. But there are certain questions he *does* answer in a really, wonderfully provocative way. I think there will be some surprises that people aren't expecting."

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi," is due to release Dec. 15.
