Students Already Anticipating the Next Installment of the Star Wars Story

Ever since Disney purchased Star Wars they have been on a roll with films, TV shows and games. Since the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens they have released a spin off film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and this December they are releasing the highly anticipated eighth film, titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Who are Rey’s parents? What will become of Kylo Ren through his training? What has Luke been doing on the island? Star Wars:The Force Awakens left us with some questions and somewhat of a cliffhanger ending, and fans are extremely excited to see where the story goes.

Senior Donavon Key said “I hope to see an original plot. The last film was by no means disappointing, but it was sort of familiar with the Death Star being destroyed in the original.”

(Spoilers) Ben Solo or Kylo Ren has killed his father,  then Kylo Ren is defeated by Rey and left scarred; he has to finish his training and he wants to destroy Luke Skywalker the Jedi for good, but in the trailer it seems as if Luke wants the same thing.

“I want to see something new and exciting, and I want them to develop the new characters more,” said senior Anthony Devincentis. Not only will the existing characters such as Rey, Finn, Kylo Ren, Poe Dameron, and Princess Leia continue to grow, but there are a few new additions to the cast of this movie including Benicio Del Toro and Kelly Marie Tran. Little is known about their characters.

Senior Emma Crouch said “I want to see a lot of Luke in the next movie and figure about Rey’s importance to the story and her connections.”

Rey’s lineage and Luke Skywalker seem to be what fans are most interested in and it seems we will get answers. Go watch Star Wars: The Last Jedi on December 15, 2017 and see what Director Rian Johnson has in store for fans.
