Star Wars is everywhere.
Now that that’s settled, let’s move forward.
The Last Jedi writer and director Rian Johnson (Looper, The Brothers Bloom, Brick) has promised a new twist (or two…) for Star Wars: Episode VIII. As fans all over the world prepare for the December premiere of the eighth chapter in one of the greatest sagas concerning good vs. evil, we are looking for little tidbits of information to whet our theatrical appetite. Not the full meal or anything close to it, but just a delicious tasting menu. And in doing so, we’ve discovered that the highly-anticipated Last Jedi was written and directed not only by a brilliant moviemaker but by a lifelong Star Wars fan.
As the video after the jump shows, Rian Johnson’s enthusiasm is infectiously inspiring. Tapping into his excitement of being involved in a Star Wars film is more powerful than any Red Bull or triple latte.
The Last Jedi is a Star Wars movie made by one of its biggest fans. Therefore, this forthcoming film will be eight kinds of awesome, especially since Rian Johnson has already been hired to write an entirely new trilogy after this current trilogy.
Have a Better Week Than Last Week.
P.S. How does your Wookiee impersonation sound?
