Here’s your first look at Star Wars: The Last Jedi’s opening crawl
Our first glimpse at the traditional Star Wars opening crawl for the upcoming episode VIII is here.
It was announced two days ago that the official title for the eighth instalment in the Star Wars franchise would be The Last Jedi. Now, we’re getting our first glimpse at the opening crawl for the new film…
We can’t see exactly what will be said, but it still gives us a chill to see the new title confirmed.
Fans have speculated extensively on the meaning of the title of the new film, with some believing in refers to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) – who was referred to as ‘The Last Jedi’ in the Force Awakens opening crawl.
Others have argued that since ‘Jedi’ is both the singular and plural form of the word, it could be referring to both Luke and new hero Rey (Daisy Ridley), or any number of people.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will continue on from where The Force Awakens left off in 2015, with Rey finally discovering an older Luke Skywalker.
General Leia Organa will also play a larger role in the sequel, with all of her scenes being filmed before Carrie Fisher’s tragic death in December 2016.
Episode VII alum John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson and Andy Serkis are all scheduled to return to the franchise for The Last Jedi.
