On January 23, 2017 the official blog site of Star Wars has revealed the news of the title for the next chapter in the Star Wars Skywalker Saga.
“We have the greatest fans in this or any other galaxy. In appreciation of the fans, we wanted them to be the first to know the title of the next chapter in the Skywalker saga: STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI.”
As you can see the post goes of from the start to thank the fans for the continued support through all the years. From there they wanted to let them, as well as us who are just slightly interested in the movie what the title was going to be named. In this case it’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
The post then goes on to say; “THE LAST JEDI is written and directed by Rian Johnson” with the last important piece being; “STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is scheduled for release December 15, 2017.”
Firstly, I’m not too familiar with the director but I can only remember him making the movie Looper back in 2012 as well as a some episodes in Breaking Bad. So with only a few movies under his belt, it’s quite a step towards the humongous franchise known as Star Wars. We can only hope with the directions of the producers and writers, he will be able to make a good continuation on the story from Episode VII: The Force Awakens.
Secondly, the movie is coming out December which in a way points to rumors that has been floating aorund forums and social media that Disney are planning on making Star Wars a December, ultimately a Christmas special to come out every year. Where the main story will come out every second or third year, though the small stories like Rogue One the years in between.
You can read it all on the blog, but it’s honestly not much which is also why this post is so small.
So tell me guys, what are your thoughts on these news? I personally are not keen on the name of the movie but that’s also because it won’t make sense with the universe within the franchise itself. However, I’m interested in seeing if Rian Johnson can rise above what the previous movie never made possible.
However, I’m still interested in what your perspectives on this is. Write it in the comments and we will see how much we are in the same booth.
Stay Cozy and have a nice day!
