Star Wars: The Last Jedi!
Unlike The Force Awakens or Rogue One, Disney and Lucasfilms made us wait and wait and wait for the Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser. I guess the first tastes were free and now they’ve got us hooked on new Star Wars, we’re gonna have to work for it. The teaser is a wonderful taste of what’s to come and brings back Rey, Poe, Finn, Luke, Leia, Ren, and the droids. In all honesty, they could have showed me nothing but a desert landscape with a single spaceship in the sky and I would have been reduced to tears, but luckily we get to see shots of Rey’s training, gorgeous cinematography, some space battle action, and a taste of some new planets, vehicles, and secrets.
The panel before the teaser featured Josh Gad chatting with Kathleen Kennedy and director Rian Johnson about the progress of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, what Johnson brings to the franchise, Carrie Fisher’s legacy, and the plethora of photographs Johnson took which I would like in a book for Christmas please and thank you. There were also special appearances by Daisy Ridley, BB-8, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, and Mark Hamill as well as a whole host of questions about Rey’s lineage, the future of the franchise, and whether or not Luke has any dialogue this time. I’ve never been so jealous of a crowd in my life. We’re over two hundred days away from Star Wars: The Last Jedi being in theaters on the 15th of December but the real hype has now begun.
