Fulfill your destiny! Star Wars Episode VIII will be here before Christmas!


All of us Star Wars fans have been waiting for Disney to release Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. It will hit the theatres on 15 December, 2017!

So where were we in the story? Where we left off Episode VII, we knew that Kylo Ren was Princess Leia and Han Solo’s son. The Force was very strong in Kylo Ren, and he was training to be a Jedi under his uncle, Luke Skywalker. However, we learn, during the movie, that he in fact turned to the Dark Side and wiped out all the new Jedis in training under Luke. Luke Skywalker then vanished! We are introduced to new characters, Rey, Poe, Finn and BB8.

It is not clear to us who Rey is from Episode VII. We know she has the power of the Force and that she is looking for Luke Skywalker. Poe is an X-Wing fighter pilot. BB8 is the new droid who belongs to Resistance fighter Poe. Finn starts off as a Stormtrooper but then fights against the Empire.

Disney released the new Trailer on Sunday, 8 October, 2017. Here it is. Write in with what you think!
