Mark Hamill in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) TV Spot “LUKE IS ON THE FALCON!!!”

36 DAYS TO GO, PEOPLE!!!  This latest TV spot offers a little new footage, the most significant of which is Luke on the Falcon for the first time in who knows when.  Some people may consider this a spoiler, but …..the ship is on the island…..we know he’s going to get his cranky butt off the island at some point…..THE SHIP IS ALREADY ON THE ISLAND!  It also gives a loot at what appears to be Snoke’s throne room for the first time.  Why isn’t this movie already here????

In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past. The film stars Mark Hamill, the late 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.

  1. Sorry, not watching this trailer. No more, even if the only thing I’ll see is more of that throne room. I’m doing the opposite of spoiling myself with this movie. It’s going to be like when I saw Return of the Jedi back in 1983. We’ll see if the movie delivers, but whether it does or not, I can safely say that I’ll be genuinely surprised by most of the goings on.

      1. 35 days! There might be cynics on the internet, but in the real world SW is actually popular again. Can you feel it? When I went and saw Thor, TLJ was the one coming attraction people were really into. The entire energy in the theater changed. It feels so good to be a fan of something popular again. For a while there it was pretty bad, wasn’t it? It must be what Trekkies feel like, most of the time. I don’t want to go back. I can’t, I won’t.

  2. Hey! Rian Johnson! New trilogy, new galaxy (if that’s to be believed)! An area of the SW universe never seen before! This ameliorates the approaching glut of OT character spinoffs! This will make people forget Solo, if it turns out to be bad! And this means Disney has total confidence in TLJ! That last part is not definite evidence that the film will deliver, but it’s good to know! This just reenergized my faith in the future of the franchise!

    1. WOW. Well, more Rian Johnson and more Star Wars are all good things and we’ll have absolutely no idea what to expect. The spin-offs can keep exploring the current galaxy and, who knows, maybe this is just a break from the Skywalker Saga, but I think it’s a great idea, and I’m so encouraged Disney is planning ahead and mimicking the long-term vision that made the MCU work so well. I have a feeling that this trilogy will not preclude more adventures with the characters from this trilogy as that’s something Kathleen Kennedy specifically mentioned earlier last week, that there were more stories to tell. But I can see them taking a six year break from their story while they do Rian’s trilogy and some spin-offs while carefully crafting where they might want an Episode X-XII to go. The point is: they’re thinking long-term, far ahead, and this just took us to 2027, assuming we get a spinoff in 2020 (probably the Obi-Wan) and then they start Rian’s trilogy alternating each year with a spinoff, by 2027 they may have a fantastic story in place for Episode X. Or they may do something else, but the point is they’re thinking about keeping the quality going that long, and that’s the kind of thinking that worked so well with Marvel.

      1. Deep down I did not think Disney was going to break free from the confines of the familiar, and the stuff they could package in an obvious way. Maybe Johnson turns out to be the prophet who takes the message of Lucas and truly brings it into the future. What do you think the subject matter of his new trilogy could possibly be? Frankly I want to see something that has never been touched on before, not even by the EU, and given what’s being reported, that seems to be in line with reality. If TLJ really does touch on the origins of the Jedi, maybe Johnson is setting up his new trilogy in a stealth way. Wouldn’t it be fascinating to see a kind of Book of Genesis for the Jedi religion?

        I know I’m being ridiculous right now, because no one knows anything, but I’m feeling a sense of possibility I have not felt since the days when the prequels were first announced. Do you remember those days? Qui-Gon Jinn walked a dangerous line between the light and dark sides, and had twelve disciples. Obi-Wan Kenobi was going to turn out to be a clone with the numerical designation OB-1. We counted down the days until Jar Jar Binks would become as beloved a character in our minds as R2-D2, and there was going to be an entire army of Vader-like Sith, goddammt. I will always defend the prequels, to the death if necessary, but they did not exactly live up to the dream.

        Right now, tonight, Disney seems to be showing some vision along with their foresight. I think TLJ turns out to be really, really good and surprising. I think Johnson has really impressed his bosses. I wonder if they think they have an old-school turkey on their hands with Solo? Maybe they’re realizing that they need new blood (RESPECTFUL new blood, mind you, not the L&M brand of new blood) to energize the franchise. Maybe they think they made a huge mistake with the concept of Solo, and the choice of Howard, and they want to make sure the franchise pivots afterwards, really fast. Insight like that is rare in Hollywood, but the news of this new trilogy is so good, I want to believe.
