After the release of The Force Awakens at the end of 2015, Disney and Lucas films didn't mess around delivering the general public its first announcement/teaser for The Last Jedi back at the start of 2016. Now, well over a year later, we finally get to see some proper footage from the upcoming movie.
Many of the key cast from Star Wars: The Force Awakens will feature in The Last Jedi including Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron and Adam Driver as Kylo Ren who famously slaughtered his much-loved father in a face to face battle that made for one of the most pivotal scenes in the history of Star Wars.
As ever with new Star Wars releases, the scrip and the story outline is one of Hollywood's most closely guarded secrets and few official details have been released to the public. We do know that the story will pick up where The Force Awakens ended with Rey going off into a mountainous setting to hunt down Luke Skywalker in a bid to train with him and learn his knowledge.

Critics haven't a bad word to say about the Oscar winner's performance.
It feels cruel that we haven't seen much of Lupita Nyong'o on the big screen since she won an Academy Award for her first film role in '12 Years A Slave', but it's worth the long wait to see her in her latest venture, Disney's 'Queen Of Katwe'.
Madina Nalwanga and Lupita Nyong'o star in 'Queen Of Katwe'
She's yet to grace the screen with a leading part, but her supporting role in this film about Ugandan chess champion Phiona Mutesi is star quality. She plays Phiona's firm but affectionate mother Nakku Harriet, while Phiona is played by newcomer Madina Nalwanga.

After winning an Oscar for her first role in a feature film (2013's 12 Years a Slave), Lupita Nyong'o has picked her projects carefully.
Lupita jumped at a chance to work with her longtime friend, filmmaker Mira Nair, shooting Queen of Katwe in Uganda, next door to Kenya, where she grew up. Most films set in Africa, she says, are about "wars or political dictators or what-have-you. But this is a view of Africa told with Africans front and centre. It's their narrative, and that means that you have layered characters. Yes, you have struggle, but it is also a story about perseverance, vision and the magic of realising your dream."
In the film, Nyong'o is Harriet, the mother of child chess prodigy Phiona, played by newcomer Madina Nalwanga. Nyong'o loved working with the young actors. "Children remind you what the heart of the matter is," she says. "They work from a truthfulness. I mean, I watched Madina develop her craft as we went along. She was always so curious about what we were doing and why we were doing it. I would be warming up and she would ask me what I was doing, and the next thing I knew she was doing it. With every take, I'd see she would have a deeper understanding of what the dynamics were, what was at stake, what the subtext was. And she may not even be able to articulate that. But I could see her growing as an actor."

Disney's Queen of Katwe is set in the slum of Katwe in Kampala, Uganda where we follow Phiona Mutesi on her journey to dream big and create a better life for her and her family. Her mother Harriet works on the market selling vegetables in order to just provide enough money to keep a roof over the family's head and says to Phiona that she will be disappointed if she 'dares to dream'.
Model and actress Lupita Nyong'o chats about some of the benefits to playing a motion capture character (Lupita even spoke to Andy Serkis, the master of motion capture, for some advice) and what attracted her to the role of Moz in the first place. Speaking about the character, she says there's a great heart at the centre of the character and what might become of the role.

Appealing both to a new generation of viewers and fans of the series since the beginning, this 30-years-later sequel to 1983's Return of the Jedi is a thrilling adventure. Filmmaker J.J. Abrams has managed to capture the tone of the original trilogy while telling a story about young, vibrant new characters whose connection to the overall saga deepens intriguingly as events unfurl.
Over the past three decades, the Empire has regrouped, forming the First Order to crush the Old Republic for good. And the plucky Rebellion hasn't offered much resistance since leader Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) disappeared. The Empire's top henchman Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is searching for him just as diligently as the rebel leader General Leia (Carrie Fisher). But the real action is happening out of their grasp, as disaffected storm trooper Finn (John Boyega) teams up with rebel pilot Poe (Oscar Isaac) and then feisty scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley) and expressive droid BB-8. Along the way, Han Solo and Chewbacca (Harrison Ford and Peter Mayhew) find themselves back in the fray. And everyone is startled when there's a strong stirring in the force.
Abrams beautifully recreates the scruffy, clanky mechanical atmosphere of the original trilogy, infusing scenes with witty banter and John William's soaring score to throw us right back into that familiar galaxy. This includes the saga's main themes: the temptation of power, how true heroism is often accidental, and the tension between parents and children. Combine this with a plot that propels itself with a series of unexpected adventures and battles, all centred on the characters, and the film taps strongly into the teen in all of us.

While the new trailer has given away little secrets, fans are freaking out in anticipation for ‘The Force Awakens’.
On Monday evening the new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit and the internet nearly broke, thanks to the reactions of excited fans. The new clip is our third look at the upcoming film, but this trailer is by far the most interesting for fans, even if it gives little away.
Han Solo and Chewbacca in Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Newcomer Daisy Ridley is heavily featured as Rey, a scavenger who is thought to be the daughter of Han Solo and Princess Leia. The actress herself was just as emotional as the franchises’ legion of fans on Monday, while watching the trailer from her bed.
It's been thirty years since the Rebel Alliance; led by the noble Luke Skywalker, the intrepid Princess Leia and the lionhearted Han Solo; finally defeated Emperor Palpatine of the Galactic Empire, alongside his redeemed assistant Darth Vader. The second Death Star was reduced to rubble, and the galaxy was free from a tyrannous evil once more. If only that were true. For there can never be good without evil, and sure enough another Dark Lord, Supreme Leader Snoke, has arisen to take the Emperor's place, with even more brutal plans for the civilians across the stars. But this time there are also new heroes, better equipped to deal with the ever looming terror thanks to an example set by the now ageing former Han, Luke and Leia. They are now preparing to help a vindicated former stormtrooper named Finn, an independent scavenger called Rey, and Poe Dameron who is a Resistance X-Wing pilot.

Mowgli is a human boy known as a man-cub to his peers, among which are an array of jungle beasts. Left in the jungle as a baby, he was taken in by a family of wolves who raised him as their own. However, the older he grows, the more of a threat he becomes to a formidable villain named Shere Khan; a Bengal tiger with a deep fear of fire and loathing of man. Led by an impatient black panther named Bagheera, he is sent away from his jungle home to the safety of a nearby man village, though the journey becomes less straight-forward the further they stray. Mowgli befriends a fun-loving bear named Baloo, but finds Khan is not the only jungle menace as he is set upon by a gang of monkeys led by the orangutan King Louie, and hypnotised by a vicious snake named Kaa.
