Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi Trailer – HD Screenshots and Breakdown

Having watched it about ten times now, the first teaser for The Last Jedi is a decidedly different roll out than either The Force Awakens or Rogue One got.  It’s definitely a teaser; not a full trailer and still gives very little away on plot, but what it does give is pretty jaw-dropping.  It looks like Luke did indeed find the first Jedi Temple, and agrees to train Rey (remember, this film will pick up exactly where Episode VII ended).  Kylo Ren/Ben Solo is on the teaser poster sporting a new scar courtesy of Rey and it looks like he’s ditched the helmet (what would grandfather think?).  Aside from that, the shots are very cryptic; new ships, Finn still recovering, a brief look at the new Super AT-ATs, but the shocker is the end of the teaser and Luke’s opinion of the Jedi.  Far from restarting the order, Luke says, “It’s time for the Jedi….to end.”  Stills from the trailer and more speculation below.

Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi!!! Episode VIII’s Title Finally Revealed!!!

Star Wars Episode VIII’s official title has finally been revealed and the eighth episode is Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  I love it.  It’s so fitting given where Episode VII left off with us finally getting to Luke (to whom I’m supposing the title refers as he is called the last Jedi in The Force Awakens’ crawl), and we know from director Rian Johnson that we’re going to pick up exactly where we left Luke and Rey.  No more details released than the details below from Coming Soon and a stark teaser poster, but the timing of the release seems to indicate that the rumors that we’ll get our first look at The Last Jedi during Super Bowl LI in two weeks are true.  MAN I LOVE THIS TITLE!

My Favorite Scene: Star Wars Episode VII The Force Awakens (2015) “Jedi Steps”

It seems surreal that a year ago, we were all poised on a knife’s edge to see if Episode VII would be the Star Wars film we hoped it would be.  A year later, we find ourselves a little (ok a lot) more confident going into the first Star Wars spin-off film, but there’s still that tinge of nervousness that fans won’t be able to exorcise until we all see Rogue One for ourselves.  Even if it’s everything that we hope it will be, it won’t make nearly as much as The Force Awakens or be the global phenomenon that was.  The Force Awakens united a fractured Star Wars fanbase and opened a doorway for seeming infinite visits to a galaxy far, far away (which is fortunate as Disney definitely is going to give us one a year).  I lost count of how many times I’ve watched it this year before it even came to Blu Ray so picking a favorite scene is every bit as tough with this installment as it is in the other Saga films.  In the end, I chose the end.

Star Wars: Anakin Skywalker “Rise”

I am a huge fan of TheBatBoy12345 on YouTube and his Star Wars retrospectives.  As the Saga grows next month from seven to eight films, even more material to show the threads woven through all of the Star Wars films is available to talented YouTubers like BB (who if you aren’t following, you should be).  He offers an epic, three-chapter look at Anakin Skywalker including footage from Rogue One (a film that I think is really going to enlighten fans on exactly how Vader became known to the Rebellion and why he instantly became their most feared adversary).  Check it out and head over to YouTube to look at some of the other retrospectives.  It’s a good time to escape reality, and Star Wars has always been my go-to place for such times.
