Star Wars: The Last Jedi (12A)
That time of the year is upon us once again, when the gentle jingle-jangle of sleigh bells is joined in harmonic unison by the exhilarating and thunderous pew-pew of laser beams. Yes, Christmas is just around the corner and with it comes the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode VIII ' The Last Jedi.
General Leia Organa-Solo (Carrie Fisher) and Alliance heroes Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega) continue the fight against General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) and the overwhelming army of The First Order. On the other side of the galaxy, having discovered her true destiny and the power she possesses after battling Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), young scavenger Rey (Daisy Ridley) undertakes her training in the ways of The Force from solitary Jedi Master Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). Sensing her growing knowledge and power, Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) and the Knights of Ren scheme to defeat Rey, Luke and the Jedi once and for all.
After the phenomenal success of 2015's The Force Awakens, J.J. Abrams stays on as Executive Producer, handing over the directing reins to Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper) for the penultimate episode in cinema's greatest sci-fi saga. While the untimely death of Carrie Fisher adds a little sadness to this instalment of the Star Wars cinematic universe, there can be no denying that The Last Jedi is sure to be the perfect family adventure to enjoy during the festive period.
This event has now passed.
