Five Things You NEED To Know Before Seeing STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI!
By Emmett Cawley, Programming Intern
Getting ready head down to the Prince Theater to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi?
Well, here is a short list of things you will need to know before you grab your popcorn and enter the theater!
The Last Jedi Gets Right into the Action
If the thing you want most from The Last Jedi is to see what’s next for Rey and Luke, you’re in luck! The cliffhanger of The Force Awakens will be immediately wrapped up after the iconic yellow scroll.
This is a Darker Film
Many fans will be eager to liken The Last Jedi to The Empire Strikes Back because it takes on a much darker tone than The Force Awakens. This means there’s less room for romance and relationships so unfortunately we’ll have to put our hopes for a Poe and Finn storyline on the back burner!
The Score Will be Music To Our Ears
The only Star Wars score which was not composed by John Williams was Rogue One. For The Last Jedi, Williams is back with another original score so get ready to be humming your favorite iconic theme before, during and after the action!
Rey and Finn Will Be Out On Their Own
Daisy Ridley and John Boyega were brilliant together in The Force Awakens but their on-screen compatibility won’t be so present in The Last Jedi as Rey and Finn find themselves playing different roles in the rebellion. Don’t worry though! The Last Jedi introduces a handful of new characters alongside our old heroes.
The Film is Officially Dedicated to Carrie Fisher
Fisher made great contributions to Star Wars, Hollywood and the world. Her intelligence, independence and compassion weren’t exclusive to her role as Leia. While we don’t know the fate of the beloved rebel princess, we know there is a dedication to Carrie Fisher when the ending credits roll.
