Happy Monday

The Last Jedi trailer is here…

I think a few people will see Star Wars: The Last Jedi in movie theaters this Christmas. The film’s director and screenwriter Rian Johnson continues to show that he’s the real deal within the beloved fictional cinematic world of Star Wars.

Is it Christmas yet?

Have a Better Week Than Last Week.

That ’70s Movie

May 25th, 1977.

On this day, 40 years ago, movie fans (equally excited and curious) flocked to theaters across the United States to see this new movie called Star Wars. The end result was the beginning of a cinematic revolution surpassed only by Steven Spielberg’s portfolio of brilliance and influence. While there are seemingly countless characters within the ever-expansive Star Wars universe, there’s one name that rises above the rest.

Thanks to “Heroes Fan Productions” on YouTube, Luke Skywalker has been given a great tribute to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Wars: A New Hope’s theatrical release.

It took 40 years to go from a far, far off world’s new hope to its last Jedi. Has any other movie character ever had that long of a dramatic shelf life?

Luke Skywalker is a cinematic force unlike any other.

P.S. Ever wonder what it was like for people when they first saw Star Wars back in 1977?

Luke is Skywalking the Line Between Good and Bad?

Why wasn’t this clip from a Mark Hamill interview attached to the first teaser trailer for The Last Jedi?

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s clear as a glass of water that Star Wars is kind of a big deal. Even if you aren’t a fan, the cultural impact of Star Wars has and will cross your path somehow, someway. If you follow Jimmy’s Daily Planet (thank you if you do!), then you saw the very first teaser trailer for The Last Jedi last Friday just minutes after 12:00 p.m. ET right here on this blog immediately after it debuted and was officially posted online. The teaser trailer appropriately followed a Last Jedi panel discussion at the 40 Years of Star Wars celebration.

Writer and director Rian Johnson and superstar producer Kathleen Kennedy knew how to treat their audience.

The Last Jedi teaser trailer is awesome. And in the Star Wars mania surrounding this trailer, Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker) and Daisy Ridley (Rey) recently did a joint interview with ABC News. The teaser trailer revealed limited details while the aforementioned interview, well, just watch below.

That’s what you call the second teaser trailer for The Last Jedi.

The Last Jedi (Trailer) Has Awakened

The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi is here.

What’s your first reaction?

My reaction can be summarized with three words hyphenated in perfect harmony:

Crazy-awesome-amazing.

The Jedi has to end? Who is Supreme Leader Snoke? Is “Jedi” in the title intended to be singular or plural? Who is Rey related to? Is this Luke Skywalker’s final Star Wars adventure?

While much of the film’s story and crucial details are well under wrap (thankfully), fans have been given a spectacular glimpse into the (potentially) masterful work by director Rian Johnson. The intensity level for The Last Jedi will continue to rise to fever pitch and beyond with 8 months still to go until its theatrical release that will likely make a few more bucks than that Shia LaBeouf’s film Man Down one week ago (sold one ticket in England).

Thank you, 40 Years of Star Wars Celebration. This wonderful event brought together most of the primary cast of the original trilogy, its famed creator George Lucas, a sensational first look at The Last Jedi and a sweet, emotional video tribute to Carrie Fisher.

We’ll always remember Carrie Fisher as a princess.

Romantics say that time makes the heart grow fonder, whereas Star Wars fans say that teasingly mesmerizing questions with answers to be discovered on a definitive cinematic release date makes the heart grow at a rate of 12 parsecs.
