I wasn't at Star Wars Celebration Orlando over the weekend but thanks to the live stream, there were many times when I felt like I was. It was nice being able to enjoy the panels I had on my list to watch in the comfort of my own bed though nothing can compare to experiencing a Star Wars panel with your husband and thousands of fans all in the same room. But even still I woke up earlier than usual for The Last Jedi panel. I was so excited that I couldn't sleep, much like my ten-year-old self on Christmas morning. Your body just knows.
The panel was such an emotional delight and there were many moments of ear-to-ear grinning, gasps from the photos (including the poster above!) they shared throughout, and even teary-eyedness when Daisy Ridley walked out on stage. I wasn't very familiar with Rian Johnson beforehand so to see his passion for Star Wars and kindness towards the fans was just very reassuring, especially after watching the teaser trailer. It left me with goosebumps on my arms for just as long as The Force Awakens trailer did if not longer. It looks absolutely exquisite and quite honestly like the perfect continuation to this new trilogy. I will be discussing in further detail my thoughts on the trailer on Force Cult this week (look for it on April 23rd) but in the mean time, you can watch my reaction to the trailer below.
What do you think of The Last Jedi poster and trailer?
