Plot details are being kept under wraps for now, but The Last Jedi is the sequel to 2015’s The Force Awakens and picks up moments after Episode VII. Rey has travelled to Ahch-to with Chewbacca and R2-D2 to find the exiled Luke Skywalker and begin her formal Force training. However, the Luke Rey meets is not necessarily what she imagined, as Skywalker believes it is time for the Jedi to end. Meanwhile, the war between the Resistance and First Order rages on, with both sides looking for whatever upper hand they can get. General Leia Organa regroups with trusted allies Poe Dameron and Finn, while Supreme Leader Snoke looks to complete Kylo Ren’s training.

The Last Jedi is the eighth episode of the famous Skywalker saga that began with the original Star Wars film in 1977 and serves as the middle chapter of the sequel trilogy. It is arriving in theaters in time to commemorate the franchise’s 40th anniversary and promises to be more ominous in tone when compared to its predecessor. In addition to the returning characters from The Force AwakensLast Jedi introduces the likes of Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose and mystery characters played by Benicio del Toro and Laura Dern to the series.

Star Wars: Episode IX, the followup to Last Jedi, has been scheduled for a May 2019 premiere. At this point, Lucasfilm is unsure if the saga will continue beyond that point or end with director Colin Trevorrow’s film.
