The moment has finally arrived! Tonight in movie theaters throughout the country The Last Jedi will debut and while I won’t be one of the many thousands of Star Wars fans to see it tonight I am going to see it tomorrow and it’s a stunning realization. For two years I have waited for this moment and now that it’s here I can’t believe it. *squeal* The time has finally for me to see this movie and I am so excited.
Here’s the teaser for today.
I’m putting up the official trailer because, well, the movie is coming out tomorrow and what better teaser to celebrate this milestone with than the trailer that started this incredible journey a few months ago.
This isn’t just a fantastic trailer but it implies so many things. I can’t wait to see if this trailer was just a giant trick that’s misleading us to think one thing when really something else entirely different happens or if this trailer is very accurate. And I’m excited to see what Luke’s words, “This is not going to go the way you think” will truly mean. The moment we have all been waiting for has finally arrived and I am patiently waiting to see this highly anticipated sequel to The Force Awakens.
And the Character Today Is…
Of course, everyone’s favorite scavenger turned new Jedi prodigy, Rey.
The Force Awakens was a tale about the Force literally awaking in each of the major characters of the last movie. Kylo Ren, while he already knew and had trained in the ways of the Force, was still learning to tap into his full power. I believe Finn has a slight amount of the Force and there is proof that he does within the movie but that’s another topic. And then you had Rey, this scavenger who was waiting on this desolate planet for her parents to return and take her from that horrible place.
When you first meet her in the movie she didn’t even know she had the Force but as soon as she came into contact with Luke’s old lightsaber everything changed for her and we’ll still witnessing the aftereffects of that first encounter. At the end of The Force Awakens she seemed to be the second Luke coming but after seeing the marketing and some interviews for The Last Jedi I’m not so sure she’s going to take the route that I thought she would.
It’s been implied that she’s going to team up with Kylo Ren but what does that tell us about Rey’s journey in this film? Are they basically telling us that she is going to turn to the dark side or is it, like Luke said, “Something bigger.”? Rey’s journey ahead of her is only going to become a lot more complicated and I’m anxious to see where she will stand, allegiance wise, by the end of this next film.
Tomorrow I’m going to share my first reaction of the film and I’m hoping it’s mostly positive, which I think it will be. You definitely won’t want to miss it. I also made some bold predictions on the directions The Last Jedi might take and I’m excited to see if they actually come true or not. If I get any of my predictions correct I am going to be a very excited woman.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have an absolutely splendid day. May the Force Be With You!
I’m finally going to see The Last Jedi tomorrow!!!! *fist pump* Yes!
