The Last Jedi is Almost Here!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes out at the end of the week and I am tremendously excited for it. I don’t have a complete post for this week, but I do have a couple of Last Jedi related posts to share.

I wrote a post for Areo Magazine a few weeks ago titled “The Consumerism of Cute: How Merchandise Governs the Star Wars Franchise.” It covered how the merchandise sales affects the character design in characters like Porg and BB-8.

More recently, I wrote a post for No Coast Bias about how just days before the movie hits theaters, we don’t actually know what it’s about.

 

So before I go in, I just want to make a couple of predictions about the movie. Probably none of which are gonna be right, but let’s see:

  1. As I mentioned in my Rian Johnson post, I think there will be a cameo by Joseph Gordon Levitt
  2. Mark Hamill will give the best performance, and it will probably be the best of his career.
  3. Kylo Ren will save Rey from Commander Snoke.
  4. BB-8 and BB-9e will have a fight and it will be adorable and they’ll do a fake-out where they make you think BB-8 died, but he’s fine.
  5. Nothing from Rogue One will be relevant.
  6. We find out who Rey’s parents are.
  7. There’s a scene involving Carrie Fischer that makes me tear up.

 

Good luck avoiding spoilers on the internet, everyone. May the force be with you.
