Yet another film in the endless ‘Star Wars’ franchise is coming your way: ‘The Last Jedi’ is slated to hit theaters on December 15, 2017.
The film’s two and a half minute trailer aired on Monday Night Football, which tonight was a snoozefest featuring the hapless Minnesota Vikings against the rudderless Chicago Bears. The Vikings won 20-17, by the way.
In Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens return to unlock ancient secrets of the Force and reveal mysteries from the past.
The new film stars Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher, Lupita Nyong’o, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.
The Star Wars movie franchise is the second highest grossing film franchise of all-time, with a value reported at $42 billion–second only to Pokemon at $55 billion.
