Have you seen Star Wars yet?
If not, let me warn you now that this post will have spoilers. Click here if you don’t want to know what happens in The Last Jedi which came out last Friday December 15th. Today we’re going to dive deep into the Star Wars universe. May the force be with you.
Luke Skywalker and his personal island
As you’ll remember from the end of The Force Awakens, Rey finds Luke on his own secluded planet all alone and a little cranky. Well, we don’t know he’s cranky until The Last Jedi when he refuses to teach Rey anything. That is until she wears him down by following him around as he fishes and drinks very strange-looking milk from some new Star Wars creature.
Ben Solo/Kylo Ren makes his return to the big screen with even more of an emo look and feel. This time, we learn more on how he turned to the dark side. But wait, there’s a twist! Is there hope that he could turn back to the light side? Could Rey change his mind? Or is he just a slave to Snoke?
This is the last time we’ll see General Leia Organa on the big screen, but did she nail her role or what! Despite her forces decreasing, she never gave up hope or humor. Man how I miss Carrie Fisher. Anyone else tear up a little and let out a sigh when they saw her in this movie?
Finn and the love triangle
As Rey is out of sight, out of mind, Finn finds himself mingling with another female character, Rose Tico. She’s a maintenance worker for the resistance and finds herself having a crush on Finn. She saves his life and kisses him before passing out. All the while, I’m wondering how he’s gonna explain that one to Rey.
Cute and classic robots!
Not only do we get to see a lot of BB-8 screen-time, we also get a little bit of R2-D2 reuniting with Luke Skywalker action! BB-8 is awesome in this movie, helping out Poe and even shows off a sense of humor and personality.
Overall, I loved the movie. I think Disney did a great job with this installment, adding in great humor and interesting character development. It made me wanting to watch the next movie in the series (likely due out late 2019).
