The long-awaited sequel to Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens finally has an official title. Rian Johnson’s offering to from the Star Wars saga will be called “The Last Jedi” and hits theatres in December. There is plenty of speculation happening online already about just who the title refers to. Is it Luke, or Rey, or maybe “Jedi” is actually plural and refers to both of the above. Maybe it’s neither and we’re in for a big surprise! All we need now is a teaser trailer for the film and we’ll be happy bunnies. What should we make of that red logo, too? That’s ominous, eh?
Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is scheduled for release at midnight on 15th December 2017. I, however, will not be in line for that first showing. I’ll be missing it due to the 15th being my son’s first birthday. I also had to miss the UK midnight release of Rogue One – released on the same day last year – because he was being born. Still, how cool is it that the release of these movies happen to coincide with his own important dates?! Rogue One was also the first movie he “saw” in the cinema, aged just one month.
