After what seems to have been an eternity we will finally see the next chapter in the Star Wars saga Dec 15th. We had the opportunity to collaborate with Film Foodie Ozzy and screen the film Monday and here is my SPOILER FREE review
The Last Jedi is the second film in the new Star Wars trilogy, following J.J Abram’s The Force Awakens. The second chapter of the Skywalker saga is led by none other than Rian Johnson. With so much speculation about what direction this film would follow, Rian Johnson knocked it out of the ball park. Whether you liked The Force Awakens or not, this brand-new chapter will catch your attention right from the start. It will make you question everything you thought you knew about the Jedi, the Force, the Dark Side and Luke Skywalker.
The Last Jedi was a perfect start to the holiday season. Rian Johnson is a mastermind. He took us to unknown reaches of this far away galaxy we all love so much. He answered so many questions and yet left us with so many more. He pushed each character’s boundaries to the limit in ways we could have never imagined.
The Last Jedi captivated our imaginations with amazing visuals. We were introduced to amazing new creatures and characters. Scene after scene will leave you speechless, other scenes will make you cry, and yet there are still many moments of laughter and joy. We are once again able enjoy Carrie Fisher’s brilliance, our beloved Princess Leia. Rian found beautiful and unique moments to pay homage to her that will send chills down your spine.
This blockbuster was filled with a roller coaster of emotions that leave us wondering how this chapter will end. We now understand why it was so easy for Kathleen Kennedy to ask Rian to write and direct a new trilogy. He understands Star Wars, and even though this was different, it was a direction that I believe most people will enjoy and look forward to seeing more of.
