The film also marks the last appearance of late Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia) as she returns as the leader of the Resistance, now finds itself one of the few remaining bulwarks against the First Order in the wake of the New Republic’s decimation in The Force Awakens.
The question going into The Last Jedi isn’t whether the First Order will strike back but what the scope of its vengeance will be. The villains are smarting from defeat, but they, led by the sinister Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis), will certainly have a plan to strike back with a fury. Everyone — including the Resistance and Organa — knows that this is coming, regardless of whether they’re prepared.
In The Force Awakens, we learned that after the galactic civil war some 30 years ago — which served as the basis for the first Star Wars trilogy — the villainous First Order has risen up and wants to get rid of the democratic state currently known as the New Republic. Wary of an all-out war and not fully aware of the threat that the First Order presents, the New Republic is discreetly supporting the Resistance, led by General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher).
Starring Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, and Gwendoline Christie in returning roles, with Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, and Benicio del Toro joining the cast, the film has been directed by Rian Johnson.

With new characters on board and on a mission to save the galaxy from the dark force, it'll be interesting to see what Last Jedi has in store. Will it be able to follow up on Force Awakens' success? Will the new film justify Rey's power? Is she the last Jedi to walk the galaxy? Will Kylo Ren be saved or will he follow his grandfather Darth Vader's footsteps? Sameeksha from News18 is inside the theatre to get all the answers.
