Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Release Date: December 15th!!

Who else is dying to see the newest Star Wars saga? The Last Jedi is the second episode in this current Star Wars Sequel Trilogy. The first episode, released December 2015, was The Force Awakens and ended with Rey presenting Luke Skywalker with a Lightsaber. What an epic moment, right?

The Last Jedi continues where The Force Awakens left off. Luke joins the Resistance, as they prepare to battle with the First Order. Skywalker also helps Rey discover new abilities, which are even more powerful than he anticipated.

This newest episode also marks the last film for Carrie Fisher. She passed shortly after completing her work on the film.

The Last Jedi unites new and old cast members as they prepare to do battle. Returning cast members include Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver (Kylo Ren), Daisy Ridley (Rey), John Boyega (Finn), Oscar Isaac (Poe Dameron), Andy Serkis (Supreme Leader Snoke), Lupita Nyong’o (Maz Kanata), Domhnall Gleeson (General Hux), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO), and Gwendoline Christie (Captain Phasma). Joining the cast of Star Wars are Kelly Marie Tran (as Rose Tico), Laura Dern (as Vice Admiral Holdo), and Benicio del Toro (as DJ).
