With Rogue One now out, Disney and Lucasfilm will now focus on the next chapter in the Star Wars franchise. Here is what we know so far. Most of the cast, except Harrison Ford, will be back for episode 8. There will be some new faces in the mix. It will continue off from the Force Awakens cliff hanger. This will be Carrie Fisher’s last movie when she passed away in 2016, even though she had completed all of her shots before her death. January 23rd was the day they released the title “The Last Jedi”. So far there might be a trailer, that is going to be revealed during Super Bowl LI(51). We might see more along the way with Star Wars Celebration, which is coming up on April 13 to the 16 in Orlando, Florida.
There are some people trying to get some details about the movie, even Josh Gad(Olaf) tried to get some info from Daisy Ridley, twice and failed to get any info from her.
Lets talk about the title, The Last Jedi. What does it mean, and why is the font color red instead of yellow? He is what I think. Luke is the last “trained” Jedi from experienced Jedi, like Obi-Wan and Yoda in the original trilogy before he trained his fallen nephew/apprentice. There are some theories about this movie involving Luke, Rey, and Kylo Ren being the last Jedi. One of the theories is if they should bring back Anakin Skywalker in ghost form. It would make sense because in The Force Awakens, we heard Yoda and Obi-Wan’s voice in Rey’s vision. Lets hope Hayden Christensen can come back to play him again.
About the red color font. It makes you think something bad is going to happen. Take the Clone Wars for example, they used a red color font for the title when Darth Maul took over Mandalore and killed Duchess Satine in front of Kenobi’s eyes.
If there is any other theories out there, or if you have some theories of your own, comment them below.
Mark your calanders. The release date is in theatres December 15, 2017.
