Once upon a time in a galaxy far far away, one particular family brought disturbance to the Force. You exactly know what we are talking about when you read those words. December has come to be a special time for Star Wars fans, as all the new movies are released during that time. Rogue One: A Star Wars story was the first movie to diverge from the Skywalker timeline and was much loved by the fans. But they all want to know what happens after the events of The Force Awakens. Some footage from the unreleased Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer was released last week and it has got the fans raising their expectations of the movie. If you are one of them, here is what you need to know.
The Leaked Footage
The leaked footage answered a few questions and gave rise to many more. The movie is going to start at the same point, the last one ended. It starts with Luke asking Rey, "Who are you?". We then see flashes of other characters like Po, Finn and Kylo Ren also making a comeback. We also see a glimpse of Princess Leia who will be a part of this movie since Carrie Fisher filmed all her scenes before her death.
There was much speculation on what the title meant since it was announced. Before being announced, the project was giving the code name Space Bear (some bears still refer to the title as Space Bear). Jedi can be singular and plural, and this is what led to speculations among fans. The debate was between people who believed it was about Luke, people who believed that it was about Rey and Luke and also people who hoped this meant a new era of the Jedi.
Known for delivering excellent movies like Looper and Brick, Rian Johnson is writing and directing this next movie. He is known for his details when it comes to characters and exploring new themes. By the way, things are progressing, he seems to be the right choice for the project.
The origins and the legend of Force have not been explained much apart from how it could help the plot. The makers are teasing the audience with the idea that this is going to change soon with the new movie, where the mythology and legends behind the Force will be explored.
Rey, a Skywalker? Millenium Falcon, back?
Rey being a Skywalker has been discussed since the time the character was introduced. The answer to that is going to be revealed in the new movie. After Han Solo's death, the fate of Millenium Falcon was unknown until it was confirmed that the Falcon was very much a part of it.
