Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has confirmed that the upcoming film features an alien creature that is inspired by the Carrie Fisher’s Gary the French bulldog.

A fan spotted the being in the background of new stills from the movie and asked Johnson if it is SpaceGary.

Johnson immediately confirmed the appearance.

The image is in the casino of Canto Bight and behind John Boyega’s Finn and Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose is an otherworldly being who is holding a rumpled alien pet with bugging eyes.
