Rian Johnson Wraps ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Without Any Production Drama

     September 22, 2017


While the rest of the Star Wars cinematic universe is busy shuffling directors and release dates, Rian Johnson has quietly been putting the finishing touches on Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The drama-free production has now come to a complete and final finish, as celebrated by Johnson and his crew, and further confirmed over social media. The eighth installment in the Skywalker Saga is well and truly locked, so fans can almost certainly expect a new trailer ahead of the film’s December 15th release date.

Rey (Daisy Ridley), Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Finn (John Boyega), Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) and Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) will do battle against Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson), and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) when the highly anticipated film drops in just a few months. The film also stars Carrie FisherAndy SerkisLupita Nyong’oAnthony DanielsBenicio Del Toro, and Laura Dern.
