Has it really been two years since THE FORCE AWAKENS went bananas at the box office and made 99 percent of all diehard STAR WARS fans forget about the hot toddy George Lucas took on the franchise between 1999 and 2005?
THE LAST JEDI is 49 days away, folks. Not even World War III with North Korea could rain on the soon-to-come parade of joy in a galaxy far, far away. Only one of those two sentences is true, of course, but in the era of Trump…um…always look at the bright side of life?
Here’s what I’m not going to do: Speculate on the story. I don’t care if Rey is bad or good, if her dad is Jar Jar Binks or Prune Face, if Kylo Ren has a magic bacta band aid on his face, or if the ageless Chewbacca has smuggled the galaxy’s entire supply of Just for Men on to the Millinium Falcon. I’ve stayed away from theories and spoilers and I can’t wait for the story to unfold.
Here’s what I am going to do: Say one thing about this trailer. It. Is. GORGEOUS.
Bravo to Rian Johnson. If this extended trailer for THE LAST JEDI is what we can expect in theaters on December 15th, then we’re all in for a treat.
