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. 

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:


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.

Is The Force Strong in This One?

Talk about the ultimate tease.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a record-breaking Goliath at the box office and an instant fan favorite. The long-awaited epic return to an epic saga hit all the major notes in a new, yet nostalgic fashion. Appropriately, the next/final two episodes in the new trilogy are in full blaster production mode.

Episode VIII started filming yesterday. That would be Day 1. The very first step towards another awesome Star Wars movie slated for release in December…of next year…in 2017.

Why the emphasis on the fact that Episode VIII won’t arrive in theaters until the end of 2017? Because the marketing strategy for studios engaging with fans for a highly-anticipated blockbuster just flew into another galaxy. Rian Johnson (the director) and Co. have sped past the teaser promotion barrier of one year out from a film’s premiere to a time-frame of more than 20 months from the release date.

SPOILER ALERT: The following groundbreaking teaser announcement includes a major spoiler/scene from The Force Awakens.

Leave it to Star Wars to promote a movie to its fans after the first day of filming.

This is the teaser 6+ million people have been looking for…
