Nine Things About The Last Jedi that Failed Audiences

SPOILERS AHEAD – Don’t read on if you haven’t seen The Last Jedi yet!

Disney just released the latest Star Wars film The Last Jedi, a film that is receiving a mixed reception from ardent fans who feel that this installment is a major misstep in this iconic film franchise. I, myself, was dismayed and disappointed by this film. Let down by the supernova sized plot problems, unanswered questions, and abrupt deaths that are casually glossed over, I am at a loss as to how this film was ever allowed to become the final product that it is. Here are nine key reasons why I, a lifelong Star Wars fan, am dubious of the direction that the franchise is headed.

The Last Jedi: What We’ll Be Looking For

The premiere of Episode VIII in the Star Wars franchise is still about seven months away, but with the recent release of teaser trailer for The Last Jedi, we cannot help but drool at the tempting snippets that have been shared. Not much has been revealed in the teaser, and we didn’t assume we’d be able to glean too much from it. From what we know from The Force Awakens, however, we can surmise that the film will be a much darker installment in the Star Wars saga. As we move ahead, here are some of things we hope to see in The Last Jedi.

Star Wars and Broadway

In case you have missed it somehow, a few weeks ago a little movie called Star Wars: The Force Awakens opened in the movie theatres and it has been getting a lot of buzz. I decided to look at the stage credits of the actors in the Star Wars franchise and was surprised (or perhaps, not surprised) to find that many of these actors have appeared on Broadway. Today’s blog is a celebration of those actors who inhabited the characters of “a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away” and who also came down from the stars to light up Broadway.
