The wait is over and the saga continues! STAR WARS “The Last Jedi” Trailer is something to celebrate! Oh glorious fans!
Orlando is currently hosting the biggest and most profound fan convention of any genre with Star Wars Celebration 2017 taking over the greatest tourist destination in the world. Expectations have been high and only escalating since Disney purchased Lucasfilms, Ltd. and promised an entire new generation of stories from a galaxy far, far away!
The Star Wars saga reignited interest with the announcement that the original saga would continue with a third trilogy. 2016’s Star Wars: Episode VI — The Force Awakens brought back old favorites first introduced in the original trilogy continuing the adventures of the Skywalker family, and launched the new heroes that would eventually carry the torch forward.
By the end of The Force Awakens audiences of all ages, dedicated and inspired by the world of George Lucas, or entirely uninitiated had come to the realization — the Force is strong! No doubt among all the highlights of the weekend long celebration in Orlando, which included a reunion of some of the original cast 40 later returning to remember and honor Carrie Fisher who recently passed away, everyone was waiting with bated breath for the first glimpse from the next installment…and here it is finally — the trailer to Star Wars: Episode VIII — The Last Jedi.
Though there is very little to draw on as far as large themes or narrative goes, one thing is for sure Mark Hamill’s heroic Luke Skywalker will be playing a pivotal role in training the Force sensitive Rey played by Daisy Ridley as the mystery continues to unfold around who this young woman is and what her role in the coming battle between good and evil! The remnant of the evil Empire, the First Order is launching an attack against the Resistance armies but are they shifting balance in their favor? In the end, does Luke Skywalker have it in him to restore balance once and for all?
Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi opens in theaters everywhere in December.
