I was able to attend an early screening of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Here’s where I admit that I’me sure I’ve seen all of the original movies, I really should watch them again. So, i might not know all of the history and I enjoyed the movie. I also am not allowed to tell you any spoilers.
Plan on being super tense. Like I was on the edge of my seat and had to tell myself to relax a couple times. It’s 2.5 hours and I was engaged the entire time.
So…go see it Friday already!
“In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past. Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in U.S. theaters on December 15, 2017.”
Yes, secrets are revealed. Kind of. Stories are told. But, what I can tell you is reasons I think you should see it without spoiling the movie.
The Force Awakens definitely started a trend of showing more women and more women in amazing roles. That doesn’t stop here. Laura Dern is Amilyn Holdo in THE LAST JEDI. And she plays quite an important role as a very knowledgable leader.
And of course, Leia as Carrie Fisher’s final role before passing. It will surely be interesting to see where IX takes us with her no longer here.
Rose Tico, played by Kelly Marie Tran is the ultimate new character. She’s raw and emotional and energetic. You can’t help but be enamored with her and want more.
Rey so much turmoil and struggle and questioning. What is she going to do with The Force?
I need a Porg in my life. Just wait until you see them with their big, expressive eyes. There are some other fun new creatures, too that you will get to meet.
Maybe it’s my old age, or lack of memory, but I feel like they definitely added in more humor to this movie than previous movies. After the movie and talking with two friends, we couldn’t decide if it was appreciated, or if it was too much, so you’ll have to be the judge.
It’s rated PG-13. If your children have seen the other movies, I think this one really won’t be a problem for them. There’s a couple dark scenes, but nothing too scary or gross. I feel like I recall one “bad word” but it wasn’t worthy of an R-rating.
I will remind you though, it’s 2.5 hours which is A LONG time for a little kid to sit in the theater. So, consider that when you decide if your kids will go see it.
I think I might have to go see it again to see if I missed things or can put pieces together in a different way. It comes out December 15th. Do you have plans to see it?
