After a lot of discussions on the latest Star Wars film both here and in our forums, and not being overly happy with the film the first time, I decided to let the dust settle a bit before seeing it again. And now that I have, my opinion on the movie is much better than it was a week ago at this time.
Thoughts? If you’ve seen it more than once, has your opinion changed any after seeing it again? Share your feelings (for better or for worse) on the latest chapter in the saga after the jump!
As we approach the official release of The Last Jedi, kicking off with the red carpet event this weekend, now may be the time to check out of casual online browsing, especially social media. Entire image galleries from the Visual Dictionary book (released on Dec. 15) have hit sites and even some of the new official TV spots have some pretty surprising reveals (a big one just today) that you may wish to experience in the context of the entire film rather than in a quick clip. Again, official TV spots and trailers are fair game to talk about but if you’re sensitive to “spoilers” the onus is on you to avoid them or seek them out. It is our responsibility to give you the option. If you wish to discuss spoilers, head to our forums.
With every new Star Wars release, there is a plethora of reference material and resource publications that go along with it. For me, they are some of my favorite gifts to give and receive for the holidays. The Last Jedi hits theaters next week, and DK will be releasing their Visual Dictionaryand Incredible Cross-Sections books plus Abrams’ The Art of The Last Jedi book. All three are available for preorder now on Amazon at up to 51% off their retail price and ship next week.
Based on the our report from yesterday regarding the new Hero Series product names (Zeus and Vesta) found online, there is speculation/coincidence that these may be the first indicators that products for the untitled Han Solo movie could rely on Greek/Roman mythology to mask the character names from the film. Thoughts?
UPDATE 01/5/18: Names found so far: Zeus (Han), Athena (Qi’Ra), Vesta, Hercules (Chewbacca), Hermes (Lando), Artemis, Minotaur (Mimban), Gorgon, Cyclops, Perseus, Pegasus (Millennium Falcon), and Cronus (Moloch)
