It’s recently been announced that the new Star Wars film is going to be subtitled, The Last Jedi. It’s been confirmed that The Last Jedi will directly follow on from the extremely popular The Force Awakens, where Rey finally discovers Luke Skywalker on the edge of a small island, commonly thought of the last Jedi temple.
Luke Skywalker at the moment is the last Jedi Knight in the Star Wars Universe, and it was hinted that Rey was actually force sensitive during the final quarter of The Force Awakens. So does this title mean that the last Jedi title is some kind of plural, meaning Skywalker and Rey, or is there going to be someone else all together?
Don’t forget that it’s also been hinted at that Finn could be force sensitive too. He does have that vicious sabre battle at the end of The Force Awakens, but unfortunately we didn’t get to see the young actor use any force powers like Rey, who used a Jedi mind trick to free herself from Kylo Ren’s captivity.
There hasn’t been too much hinted at the moment from Disney or Lucasfilm, and we’re expected to see a lot more of Luke Skywalker in this title as the Production Announcement trailer shows.
Here is a list of confirmed members of cast that are going to appear in the new Star Wars movie:
Luke (Mark Hamill), Rey (Daisy Ridley), Leia (Carrie Fisher), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), C-3PO (Anthony Daniels), plus returning characters Snoke (Andy Serkis), Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Finn (John Boyega) Maz Kanata (Lupita Nyong’o)
So who’s looking forward to the new Star Wars film? We definitely are.
