The long-awaited, eighth installment of the Star Wars franchise, The Last Jedi, was a huge hit at the box office, performing only slightly behind its forerunner, The Force Awakens. The movie was satisfying and exciting, a constant barrage of color and sound from beginning to end. The story continues to follow the adventures of Rey, Finn, and Poe, who were introduced in the seventh picture. It also includes Leia, as she attempts to lead a failing Resistance, and Luke, as he interacts with Rey. It does a good job of staying with the tone of Star Wars while introducing twists and turns along the way. One significant new character, Rose, is a Resistance fighter. The characters are thrown through many challenging circumstances, and the viewers are introduced to a new side in the force with interesting capabilities. Even more interesting are the repercussions this will have on the characters. How will they choose to use the force’s strength in the future? The implications of the film take time to process. and there are many unanswered questions, but that is part of the fun in Star Wars. Fans can fill in the blanks for themselves. The story takes some turns not approved by everyone, but it is still full of beloved characters with surprising decisions. The Star Wars franchise continues to make an impact for a new generation.
