Disney’s D23 Expo will begin at the end of this week and Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has confirmed that he will attend the event.
Johnson confirmed his attendance through his official Twitter account in response to a fan question. However, the director did not reveal if he will be attending as a fan or if he will be involved in Lucasfilm’s presentation.
Details on what new information will be announced at the convention are unknown at this point, but it has been speculated that there will be news and possibly a behind-the-scenes reel on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. If so, it would certainly make sense for Johnson to be involved in the presentation, though fans will have to wait and see.
