The first movie under the Disney Company, The Force Awakens, seemed more like a soft reboot of the franchise with the same plot devices and established characters.
Throughout thefilm, Rian Johnson explores the idea of generational conflict, in old characters wrestling with the younger characters for power.
They dislike it so much, at least one of them has started a petition to gain support for erasing the movie from Star Wars continuity. While some fans commend Johnson for the risks that he took in creating the movie, some feel offended by some of his characterizations. BB-8 is also in there, as he is quickly zipping his way into our hearts as this generation's beloved R2-D2.
A list of interesting Star Wars moments is incomplete without the glorious lightsaber battles.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars:The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro. The Force propels her to run even faster. No matter. People will love it. And then, two years later, they will say it was a disappointment.
The concept of the novel is this: allow four recognized, sci-fi/fantasy authors to expand upon the new and potentially delightful casino city, Canto Bight. They are chased. They get off the planet. We obviously want Luke to join the rebels and train Rey, but he has good reasons not to. Having praised The Phantom Menace is like having spoken favorably of Sarah Palin in 2008. He had let down his sister, best friend, and the nephew who was just a boy he should have been protecting. Maybe he's Jake Skywalker. Still, she highlights something about Rey that's important to remember. The Last Jedi surrounds our heroine with equally heroic women-women like Rose, and Admiral Holdo, and of course the legendary General Leia Organa. For one thing, the loudest voices are naturally getting themost attention, and there's plenty of Star Wars nerds kicking up all sorts of dust about their issues with the film online. When you think about it, did any of the main characters in the original trilogy make a mistake?
The future King of England, Prince William, and his brother, Prince Harry, also play Stormtroopers on Snoke's ship.
