This 'Star Wars' fan wanted to take these heroes on an unexpected journey.
Getting to direct a 'Star Wars' movie would be the opportunity of a lifetime for any filmmaker out there, but for Rian Johnson - who was a die-hard fan of the franchise before he even got involved - this was more than just a major a career break.

The director came on to helm the 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' movie with the enthusiasm of any huge fan of the movie series. He did not expect to be picked for such a major deal, following in the footsteps of someone like J.J. Abrams, it was just a dream come true.

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' is set to hit theatres this weekend, and star John Boyega reflects on how his life has changed since becoming a part of such a major cinematic legacy. After all, it was only two years ago that he was a small-time TV actor.

The 25-year-old returns as Finn in 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'; the second installment of the new trilogy, following 2015's 'The Force Awakens' which was John's break-out role in his acting career. The fame is still something he's trying to get used to, but he's certainly grateful about what it's brought him.

She thinks the new movie has taken a Kurosawa turn.
'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' has been one of the most anticipated films of the year, with millions of people set to flock to cinemas this weekend to see Rey on her latest space adventure. Daisy Ridley reveals what we can expect from her much-loved character.

First of all, everything we need to know about Rey is laid out in front of us; nothing has changed since we last saw her on 'The Force Awakens' as this sequel continues immediately after. However, there will certainly be a more badass transformation in the next film, with Daisy comparing the new look to that of typical Akira Kurosawa movies.
The film looks like it's going to be a major success.
Rian Johnson looks set to enjoy huge success with his upcoming 'Star Wars' movie, 'The Last Jedi'. Critics have been taking to their social media accounts after the embargo was lifted on them making their initial impressions taken from the movie known, and the overwhelming majority are promising one of the best romps through space there has ever been.
'The Last Jedi' hits cinemas on Friday, December 15
Whilst not much is known about the plot set to be followed in 'The Last Jedi', we do know that Daisy Ridley's character Rey will be successful in her quest of finding the self-exiled Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), whilst John Boyega's own character Finn will be waking up from his coma, following the intense battle he partook in during the final events of J.J. Abrams-directed seventh episode, 'The Force Awakens'.
The 25 year old star quit Instagram earlier this year.
The 25 year old star, who plays Rey in the upcoming eighth Star Wars film The Last Jedi, quit Instagram earlier this year and said she’ll “never go back on”. She spoke about why she did so, and about the negative impacts of being on social media on young people, in a new interview with Radio Times.
“The more I read about teenage anxiety, the more I think it's highly unhealthy for people's mental health,” she said this week. “It's such a weird thing for young people to look at distorted images of things they should be.”

With a new trilogy of films planned after Episode IX in 2019, the franchise's current star Daisy Ridley has said she doesn't see herself continuing as Rey.
With the eighth instalment in the Star Wars franchise just around the corner and excitement building about the recently announced new trilogy, Daisy Ridley has revealed that she will very likely not be taking part in any more Star Wars films beyond Episode IX.
Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine as part of a feature concerning Episode VIII, The Last Jedi, the English actress told the publication she is very unsure about returning to play her character Rey beyond her contractually obliged appearance in the ninth film in 2019, to be directed by JJ Abrams.
Asked whether she wants to portray Rey in the future, Ridley reportedly replied “no”.
The film will be the eighth episodic instalment to the sci-fi series.
'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' is already looking like it could be a major success in North America, with tracking services making an early prediction that the film will take in around $200 million across its opening weekend, from December 15-17. That would be slightly lower that the record set by 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' which took in $248 million across 4,134 movie theatres, but would still be considered a box office smash.

The $200 million figure would also make the film that with the biggest debut of the year, beating the current movie at the top of that list: Disney's live-action adaptation of their classic 'Beauty and the Beast'.

Johnson, the director of 'The Last Jedi', spoke at a fan event in Mexico about being on board for Disney's planned fourth Star Wars trilogy.
With the world about to be introduced to his take on the Star Wars universe in less than a month with The Last Jedi, director Rian Johnson has spoken for the first time about Disney’s planned new trilogy of Star Wars films.
The studio confirmed earlier this month that, as well as a stand-alone TV series, Johnson would be helming three more Star Wars movies in the coming years, which would be “separate from the episodic Skywalker saga” and “will introduce new characters from a corner of the galaxy that Star Wars lore has never before explored.”
Now, the 43 year old director has spoken publicly for the first time about the proposition of directing the fourth official Star Wars trilogy. “I’m just in the very beginning of starting to come up with what the new trilogy is going to be,” he told a fan event in Mexico this week.

The film is almost half an hour longer than 'The Force Awakens'.
The hype for new 'Star Wars' episodic instalment 'The Last Jedi' just continues to grow, and will do so even more now that director Rian Johnson has confirmed it will be the longest entry into the 'Star Wars' franchise to-date.
John Boyega's character Finn will be waking up in 'The Last Jedi'
Including credits, the film clocks in at 150 minutes (two and a half hours), meaning it'll be a full 26 minutes longer than 2015 release 'The Force Awakens', even pipping 'The Revenge of the Sith' and its 140-minute runtime to the pipeline.
