It’s been three years since we last saw Luke Skywalker in a Star Wars film, but there’s one more to look forward to: a live-action movie from Lucasfilm.
In November, the studio announced the Star Wars: Episode VIII film, which will reunite the original cast for a movie based on the 1977 animated classic, and feature an all-new trilogy.
Here’s everything you need to know about the movie.
Star Wars Rebels: ‘The Last Jedi,’ ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ star Ben Mendelsohn stars in this new Netflix original series.
The movie’s synopsis reads: The galaxy is in turmoil, and the last Jedi must lead the Resistance to save the day.
A battle against the dark side, as experienced in the prequel trilogy, will reunites the Original Six.
The Force Awakens introduced new heroes, villains, and villains to the series, including new characters and villains that we’ll soon learn are part of a larger dark plot.
The new trilogy also features characters from both the original trilogy and The Last Knight, but the latter will be a much more significant presence.
As we know, Luke Skywalker and Rey, Han Solo and Chewbacca, and Poe Dameron will all be back in the series.
This means new members of the Resistance, such as Kylo Ren and Rey’s droid C-3PO, will be on the scene.
The most notable addition to the movie series, though, will likely be Rey’s cousin Kylo.
The actor, best known for playing Han Solo on the TV series Star Wars Rebels, will play the younger version of the Jedi Knight.
The film will also introduce a new villain, Kylo’s father, Darth Vader.
The new villain will likely play a key role in the story of the film, and he’ll have a major role in what’s happening to Rey and the Resistance.
The villain will be played by Oscar Isaac, and it sounds like he’s going to be a big part of the movie as well.
As with the Star Trek: Voyager episode, fans will be able to watch the film online.
Netflix is also streaming Star Wars episodes through the company’s new Sling TV service, which launches this fall.
For fans who want to watch it live, Netflix will be streaming the film from the San Diego Comic-Con International, which kicks off July 13.
Netflix also has an option for fans to watch all the episodes of the Star War: The Force Unleashed animated series, as well as other Star Wars movies and TV shows.
