“Star Wars” fans got some great news Monday when Disney revealed the official title for “Star Wars: Episode VIII.”
The film will officially be known as “Star Wars: The Last Jedi.” To celebrate the next episode in the “Star Wars” saga, we’re going to take a look back at the last one, “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” We’ve ranked a whole ton of characters from that one, including fan favorites Rey, Finn and the deceased Han Solo (RIP).
We’re remembering the past because plot details for “The Last Jedi” remain extremely scarce, but director Rian Johnson previously said that “Episode VIII” will delve into the journey that Rey (Daisy Ridley) will take as she begins her training under Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). He said that Luke will be the “emotional entry point” into the film and that he will explore what empowers the newcomers from “The Force Awakens” and what makes them weak.
Random dude who gets jacked up by those stormtroopers
These troopers are hilarious, just running around this little shantytown firing wildly and bowling over random people like whatever this guy is.
He died on “Game of Thrones” and then was reborn in the “Star Wars” galaxy only to get killed again after uttering his first line. Next stop: “The Maze Runner.”
Supreme Leader Snoke.
George Lucas caught a lot of shit for bad character names in the prequels, but he never would have dreamed of calling his villain “Supreme Leader Snoke.” It’s a name that makes “General Grievous” look really well thought out.
I like Finn as a person, sure, but he’s mostly just along for the ride and not contributing much until somebody, like clockwork, kicks his ass in every battle.
Maybe the hottest dude in the whole movie.
She’s just happy to be here. Plays with dolls, which is not cool. Kicks a lot of ass, which is cool.
What can I say about Han Solo? He’s the guy we liked from those other movies, except old now.
I would say something snarky here, but I’m having a hard time conjuring anything since I chose like the saddest possible screenshot to use for Chewbacca. Whoops. I’ll do better next time.
