Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Postby Andrew on Tue Jan 24, 2017 9:20 am

The official title for Episode VIII has been revealed.

We have the greatest fans in this or any other galaxy. In appreciation of the fans, we wanted them to be the first to know the title of the next chapter in the Skywalker saga: STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI.

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is scheduled for release December 15, 2017.


Maybe not the most original or creative title, but I'm not bothered by it. I enjoyed The Force Awakens, and Rogue One, so I'm looking forward to this as well. The way the years fly by these days, December 15th will probably be here before we know it, too.

I enjoyed TFA, too. I hope this time they don't bank on too much nostalgia, and I also hope Luke does not die.

At this point, one of the leads should lose a right hand. And would Luke piggyback on Rey for her Jedi training?

Yeah, I'm definitely hoping this isn't the end for Luke, too. It made sense to hit on some of the same story points as one of the themes of TFA was history repeating itself, and it didn't ruin the movie for me, but I agree they have to be careful about that moving forward.

What I do hope, though, is for the new canon ghost Anakin to appear in some degree to give Luke advice or whatever. Just to give the prequels a callback.

For the stand-alone movies, I'd like to see an Obi-Wan solo film with Ewan reprising the role.

Yeah, I think he has to have some presence or acknowledgement, beyond his charred Vader helmet in TFA.

Has to, surely. We should have more experienced people fighting with them this time around.

I'm really looking forward to what they're gonna do with Kylo Ren and in which direction they're gonna take him.

That's a bit harsh. I think it's a decent character choice, a misguided young man who's trying to be badass and evil, but he's not really a villain. Or maybe not; maybe, unlike his grandfather, he doesn't redeem himself, and does fully embrace the Dark Side and dies as a true bad guy in the end.

A new trailer, gentlemen.

It's a big misdirection, but I'm sensing a double-turn. My theory is that no matter what happens, Luke will always be the last Jedi.

It's certainly teasing something like that, but I'm just not sure. Remember how everyone was convinced that Luke was going to be revealed as having gone to the Dark Side? Well, maybe not everyone, but it was a popular theory, and some of the dialogue in Episode 7 sure played it up, such as Han's wistful "Yeah, I knew Luke". The trailer's going to be cut in such a way to invite speculation and wild theories, most of which will probably be wide of the mark, so I'm not buying into that one just yet.

Remember, the Rogue One trailer that got the most hype was not only edited in a specific way but full of shots of scenes that never even appeared in the film.

There's a high chance that dramatic shot everyone is speculating about in the trailer is from two scenes two hours apart.

Also, gotta love that long scene in a trailer of all things with the Kylo/Leia back and forth, that shit ain't in the movie like that I can tell you right off the bat. Let alone cut like that lol.
