Director: Rian Johnson.
Starring: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac. USA 2017. 152 mins.

"This is not going to go the way you think." Luke Skywalker's weighty words are a mantra for The Last Jedi. Rian Johnson's vision takes the Skywalker saga in very unexpected and exciting new directions, delving deep into the mythology of the Force and challenging Star Wars heroes old and new. The late Carrie Fisher plays a major role, but the film's beating heart is the relationship between Rey (Ridley) and Luke (Hamill). The young scavenger finally comes face to face with the Jedi master, but he's not the man she was expecting to find. Why did Luke go into exile? Why is Rey so strong with the Force? Find out in the event movie of the year.
