I like to think that I live in a world where everyone else—or at least most people—are as completely and utterly obsessed with the Star Wars movies. Two years ago, I saw The Force Awakens in theaters three times. I saw Rogue One twice in theaters this past winter. When I spoke a couple weeks ago with former-SNL star Taran Killam, I was more excited to talk about Star Wars with him than when he told me that the President could barely read when they were on the same show together. I am currently living for Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac, and now, they’re back.

This new installment is called Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and it’s directed by Rian Johnson, who did films like Brick and Looper, along with the best episode of television ever made, Breaking Bad‘s “Ozymandias” episode. This movie is guaranteed to be amazing.

And Mark Fucking Hamill is in this thing, full-stop. LUKE SKYWALKER. Mark Hamill with lines as Luke Skywalker in this fucking trailer. Watch this trailer, please. And then maybe talk to me about it, because I’ll be talking about this nonstop until it drops. This movie is out in December, and it’s going to make a zillion dollars, and deserve every penny of it.

Here’s the trailer, please watch it:

 

And for good measure, look at the poster, which I will be buying and pasting up onto my wall like a 10-year-old.

  1. I think you’ve already seen us get 90% of the way there with Rogue One. Yes you see Leia, yes you see the Death Star and Vader, because those are elements of that story and they belong there, you can’t tell that story without those characters. But for the most part, 90% of that story is completely new characters. Completely new planets and places you’ve never seen before. It’s a Star Wars movie with no Jedi! You don’t see a lightsaber once until Vader pops it out at the end.
