“This is not going to go the way you think.” Luke Skywalker’s weighty words seem like a mantra for The Last Jedi. Rian Johnson’s vision promises to take 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 is confirmed to play 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 this December in the event movie of the year.
