    • Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser trailer

      The first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was screened to convention goers at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando on 14 April 2017.
      Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) is the only only character with dialogue in the trailer, which also shows scenes of Rey practicing her lightsaber moves.
      Although the trailer does not reveal much, Luke's words hint that he no longer believes that the Jedi should be the guardians of peace and justice in the galaxy.
      Captain Phasma was also shown, presumably meting out some Empire Strikes Back style retribution.
      Kylo Renn appears to have dumped his helmet as we see it shattered on the floor, although the trailer alludes to him still being a major villain for the film.
      General Leia Organa is also seen, confirming previous speculation that she would play a pivotal role in the film, guiding the Resistance forces.
      Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled for release on 15 December 2017.
    • The Last Jedi reviews

      Star Wars: The Last Jedi has officially hit theatres around the world, and the critics reviews have been overwhelmingly positive about Rian Johnson's new direction for the Star Wars saga.
      Rotten Tomatoes currently has a critics score of 93% - certified fresh - but the general public has been much more divided, with only 56% being satisfied by The Last Jedi. Metacritic is currently scoring The Last Jedi with a very positive 86.
       
      Empire gave The Last Jedi four stars, saying that the film "delivers everything you want from a Star Wars movie" and comments on the surprising ways it delivers thrills and feels.
      Rolling Stone branded it "The Empire Strikes Back for the next generation". Their 3.5 star review commented on the crowded plot, but applauded the performances of Mark Hamill and the late Carrie Fisher.
      "There are fan-pleasing moments, for sure, but nothing is included without a purpose", said IGN as they awarded a 9.7/10 rating. They also pointed out that too many subplots weighed the film down in the middle but called it "quintessentially Star Wars".
