Coming from someone who was lukewarm on The Force Awakens, this new teaser for Rian Johnson’s The Last Jedi is looking pretty stellar. Already, the teaser is an about-face from Abrams’ scattershot, fanboy installment, focusing more on tone, story and character struggle rather than spectacle porn. If this is any indication of what the film will be like, I think we’re in good hands here. Johnson is a true auteur in my opinion, and from the look of things, he’s given the series his own spin and will steer the ship in a way that fans aren’t expecting.
We’re in the position, no hyperbole, to get the best Star Wars film ever made – no pressure!
Added bonus! This beautiful tribute to Carrie Fisher from yesterday’s 40 Anniversary panel at Star Wars Celebration.
