Who is the Last Jedi

Following the release of the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, there were plenty of details for fans to obsess about in the new footage (check out our trailer breakdown for a closer look). But perhaps the most shocking part of the trailer comes from the end when we hear Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker say, “I only know one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end.”

This detail about the movie has been there this whole time in the title The Last Jedi, but at the same time, fans have also been wondering who the title is referring to. It was thought that the international titles revealed that the title was plural, either referring to Luke and Rey (Daisy Ridley) or maybe Luke and either some Jedi who are still alive, or the Jedi who were killed by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the Knights of Ren. But it turns out, the title isn’t plural.

In a recent interview following the premiere of the teaser trailer, director Rian Johnson seemingly confirmed the title is specifically referring to Luke Skywalker, which may provide some insight into what we can expect from the Jedi master in this movie. Furthermore, with Luke Skywalker coming to the belief that the Jedi must end, Mark Hamill doesn’t rule out the possibility that our hero takes a turn to the dark side. Find out more after the jump.

Carrie Fisher in Star Wars Episode 9

Ever since Carrie Fisher passed away before the end of 2016, Star Wars fans have wondered how her character General Leia would be handled as the Star Wars saga continued. Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that Star Wars: The Last Jedi would not have to be altered following her passing, despite reports indicating that Carrie Fisher was meant to play a bigger role in Star Wars: Episode 9. Part of the solution was to use existing footage of Carrie Fisher in Episode 9 that was shot during production of The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, according to Carrie Fisher’s brother Todd Fisher. But now Lucasfilm has done a complete 180 on that proposed plan.

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy recently sat down for an interview after debuting the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi (watch it over and over again right here, and then check out our trailer breakdown), and she said that we will not see Carrie Fisher in Star Wars Episode 9 after all. Find out what Kathleen Kennedy said about the matter after the jump. Read More »

Kathleen Kennedy

While the development of new Star Wars films remains shrouded in mystery, fans are certain of at least two things: Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi and Colin Trevorrow’s Episode IX will continue the tale of the Skywalker saga, and anything with “A Star Wars Story” in the title is considered a standalone spinoff film. We’ve been wondering what will happen after Episode IX for a while, and now Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has given us some insight into what she might have planned beyond 2019.

Star Wars The Last Jedi Planet

Tatooine. Geonosis. Hoth. Alderaan. Naboo. Coruscant. The names of the Star Wars planets have become so embedded in fans’ collective consciousness that I’d guess many of us could name more attributes about these fictional locations than we could about actual countries on Earth. Now Rian Johnson, the writer/director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, has revealed a new name for fans to commit to memory. Read on to discover the name of the newest Star Wars planet.
