Besides the main cast, filmmakers, and some Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Co. brass, no one saw "The Last Jedi" until the Los Angeles premiere this past Saturday. When they spot an opportunity to capitalise on people's desires, they pounce. "I feel like he ticked off his 'Star Wars' fanboy theories just one by one with this film".
The breakout beast of Star Wars' latest installment, The Last Jedi, seems to be the adorable porgs. Around the same time Han, Chewie and Finn plan a Rey rescue, and Poe leads an attack on Death Star 3.0 (a.k.a Starkiller Base), Rey escapes and reunites with the trio. Kylo spends the rest of the film acting like a sulking, spurned lover, shrieking for the First Order to shoot Rey out of the sky after she dares to reject him. Luke is only projecting himself using the Force.
Good thing we have two long years to speculate.
The film's big Thursday suggests that it's on track to easily clear $200 million for its opening weekend domestic total. It's her power and strength that attracts Kylo to her.
Daniela's bright-orange resistance pilot costume stood out from the crowd, and although her teeth were chattering, she said standing outside in the jumpsuit will be worth the wait when the movie starts. While the porgs - extremely cute tiny birds featured in the trailer - might get a bit grating, most of the creatures add to the story without becoming a distraction.
"There's always conversations", he admitted to me then. The problem? She doesn't want to accept the truth. If she hadn't shut him down so quickly and thoroughly when he begged for her to join him ("please"), we could have written several think pieces about what Twilight-esque bad messages The Last Jedi is sending young women.
Very little is known about the journey Luke took to find this island in the middle of nowhere. In The Last Jedi, Snoke says that Rey has risen with the Force to counteract Kylo's power. Who says he isn't lying to Rey for his own personal gain? You have to play to advance within the game and so it is creating a need. Rey had filthy, poor parents on Jakku who sold her for drinking money. They weren't Skywalkers or Solos or Palpatines - they were nobody. "It was her saying, 'Is this something you'd be interested in doing?'" Though Anakin was conceived of midi-chlorians, Rey seems to have two parents, though both lie in a pauper's grave on a desert planet, possibly similar to the unmarked grave where Shmi Skywalker inhabits on Tatooine.
But if you're ready to roll, you can stream the whole thing here.
Yes, you read that correctly. Unless Luke found this in the mirror cave below the island, there's really no reasonable explanation for why Luke has it or where he got it from. This ship lies just under the water in a shallow inlet of the island.
