Star Wars Celebration 2017 revealed a lot about upcoming instalment ‘The Last Jedi’ but also treated fans to some classic tidbits, too. The huge event that took place last weekend was not only a globally covered celebration, but it gave us our first glimpse at a ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ teaser trailer, as well as a touching tribute to the late Carrie Fisher. One part of Star Wars Celebration 2017 was the airing of some ultra rare archival footage from the 1970s – specifically outtakes from the first film that very few people – let alone ‘Star Wars’ fans had ever seen.
As expected, the ‘Star Wars’ team won’t be wasting much time in getting underway on the third chapter in the new trilogy. Evidence has emerged that ‘Star Wars Episode IX’ will commence principal photography this July at Pinewood Studios, West London.
The title has obviously left fans deep in thought as to just who it might refer, the obvious candidates being either Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker or Daisy Ridley’s Rey – but we shouldn’t forget that Jedi is one of those nouns for which the singular and plural are the same, like samurai, ninja, or, erm, sheep and moose. Now, IGN have figured out that the ‘Jedi’ in ‘The Last Jedi’ is in fact plural – thanks to the film’s German title.
Director Rian Johnson has shared a picture from the editing suite of ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ following yesterday’s (23 January) announcement of film’s full title.
