I'm looking forward to the new movie. My 4 1/2 year old is all in on Star Wars. Listens to all 7 soundtracks in the car, plays with it, talks about it, draws about it, theorizes about it.....he's all in. It's weird. I was a fan as a kid...but never went all in like this. He hasn't seen Rogue 9ne yet...but we will soon.
He has a good theory....he said that the new big Emperor guy from Force Awakens...is Anikin's dad! He may have something with that!
Last Jedi will be perfect for hi. He'll be almost a year older...Xmas time.....and his favourite character is Luke..who could have a big role in the new film.
I thought May 4th was the Star Wars day? Why the April days for celebration? Why not hold off till May?
I'm curious to see what The Last Jedi is going to be. Force Awakens was good, far better than the Lucas prequels, but I also felt I'd seen the story before this being the third time they've had to blow up the Death Star/Planet.
Rogue One was excellent, showing you can put story ahead of special effects and make a decent movie. If Last Jedi feels like another remake I question how long they'll be able to keep this alive.

Episode VIII picks up right after the ending of episode VII. Since you are all my very, deep, close, personal friends. I'll give you a sneak peek at the beginning of the movie, right after Rey meets crusty old Luke.
