the bridge of the ship, killing many Resistance leaders, including Admiral Ackbar.
Leia saves herself using the Force but is incapacitated, leaving Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo in command. Disapproving of her
passive strategy, Poe, Finn, BB-8, and mechanic Rose Tico embark on a secret plan to disable the tracking device.

Having arrived on Ahch-To with Chewbacca and R2-D2 aboard the Millennium Falcon, Rey meets Luke Skywalker. Luke initially
refuses to teach her, saying the Jedi should end for their failures. Unbeknownst to Luke, Rey and Kylo begin communicating with
each other through telepathic visions. Prompted by R2-D2, Luke eventually agrees to teach Rey, but Luke and Kylo give Rey
differing accounts of the incident that turned Kylo evil, with Luke confessing that he contemplated killing Kylo upon discovering his
corruption by Snoke. Unable to convince Luke to join the Resistance, Rey leaves Ahch-To without him to confront Kylo. While
preparing to burn down the Ahch-To Jedi temple and its library, Luke encounters Yoda's Force ghost, who destroys the sanctuary
instead and tells Luke that failure is the greatest teacher

Holdo plans to discreetly evacuate the remaining Resistance members using small transports. Believing she intends to desert the
Resistance, Poe instigates a mutiny. Finn, Rose, and BB-8 recruit the pirate and computer hacker DJ at a casino on Canto Bight to
help them disable the tracking device. They infiltrate Snoke's ship, but are captured by Captain Phasma, though BB-8 manages to
escape. Meanwhile, Rey lands on Snoke's ship and is seized by Kylo, who takes her to Snoke. During a confrontation with Snoke,
Rey tries to turn Kylo to the side of the Resistance. Snoke reveals that he controlled the mental connection between her and Kylo as
part of a plan to destroy Luke. Ordered to kill Rey, Kylo instead kills Snoke and works together with Rey to kill Snoke's guards. Kylo
invites Rey to rule the galaxy with him, but Rey refuses. Using the Force, they struggle for possession of Anakin Skywalker's
lightsaber until it splits in two.

Leia, having recovered, stuns Poe and allows the evacuation to begin. Holdo remains on the main ship to mislead Snoke's fleet as all
others escape to an old Rebel Alliance base on the nearby planet Crait. However, DJ reveals the Resistance's plan to the First Order,
and the evacuation transports are targeted with heavy losses; Holdo sacrifices herself by ramming Snoke's flagship at lightspeed to
stop the barrage. Rey escapes in the chaos, while Kylo declares himself new Supreme Leader to the disdain of General Hux. BB-8
frees Rose and Finn, who escape after defeating Captain Phasma, who perishes with Snokes flagship, and join the survivors of the
evacuation. When the First Order arrives, Poe, Finn, and Rose lead a charge with old speeders, but suffer heavy losses. Rey arrives in
the Millennium Falcon and draws the TIE fighters away, while Rose saves Finn from a suicide run against the main enemy cannon,
which then blasts a hole in the Resistance fortress.

Luke appears and confronts Kylo, giving the surviving Resistance fighters time to escape. Kylo strikes Luke with his lightsaber, but
learns that he has been fighting a Force projection, and Luke is still on Ahch-To. Luke defiantly tells Kylo that he will not be the last
Jedi, as Rey clears a blocked tunnel behind the base so the remaining Resistance fighters can escape. Luke, spent from the strain,
peacefully dies and becomes one with the Force. The remaining Resistance fighters escape aboard the Falcon, and Leia reassures
everyone that the rebellion has all that is needed to rise again. On Canto Bight, one of the children that helped Finn and Rose escape
grabs a broom with the Force and gazes up into space with hope in his heart.

In October 2012, Star Wars creator George Lucas sold his production company Lucasfilm, and with it the Star Wars franchise, to The
Walt Disney Company. Disney announced a new trilogy of Star Wars films.[43] J. J. Abrams was named director of the first episode
in the trilogy, The Force Awakens, in January 2013.[44][45] In June 2014, director Rian Johnson was reported to be in talks to write
and direct its sequel, dubbed Episode VIII, and to write a treatment for the third film, Episode IX, with Ram Bergman producing both
[46][47] [48]
films.[46][47] Johnson confirmed in August 2014 that he would direct Episode VIII.[48] In
September, filmmaker Terry Gilliam asked Johnson about what it felt like to take over something
that was made famous by another filmmaker,to which Johnson responded:

I'm just starting into it, but so far, honestly, it's the most fun I've ever had writing.
It's just joyous. But also for me personally, I grew up not just watching those
movies but playing with those toys, so as a little kid, the first movies I was making
in my head were set in this world. A big part of it is that direct connection, almost
like an automatic jacking back into childhood in a weird way. But I don't know,
ask me again in a few years and we'll be able to talk about that. Writer and director Rian

According to Johnson, the story begins immediately after the last scene ofThe Force Awakens.[38]
He had his story group watch films such as Twelve O'Clock High, The Bridge on the River Kwai, Gunga Din, Three Outlaw Samurai,
Sahara, and Letter Never Sent for inspiration while developing ideas.[38][50] He felt it was difficult to work on the film while The
Force Awakens was being finished.[38]

In December 2015, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy stated that "we haven't mapped out every single detail [of the sequel
trilogy] yet". She said that Abrams was collaborating with Johnson and that Johnson would in turn work with (then) Episode IX
director Colin Trevorrow to ensure a smooth transition.[51] Abrams is an executive producer along with Jason McGatlin and Tom
Karnowski.[52] Lucasfilm announced the film's title,Star Wars: The Last Jedi, on January 23, 2017.[53]

In September 2015, Disney shortlisted the female cast members toGina Rodriguez, Tatiana Maslany, and Olivia Cooke.[54] Later that
[55] and Mark Hamill was also confirmed.[11] In October
month, Benicio del Toro confirmed that he would play the villain in the film,
2015, Gugu Mbatha-Raw was rumored to have been cast in the film.[56] In November, Jimmy Vee was cast as R2-D2.[33] In
November, Kennedy announced at the London premiere for The Force Awakens that the entire cast would return for Episode VIII,
along with "a handful" of new cast members.[12] In February 2016, at the start of filming, it was confirmed thatLaura Dern and Kelly
Marie Tran had been cast in unspecified roles.[2] In April 2017, at Star Wars Celebration Orlando, Lucasfilm announced that Tran
plays Resistance maintenance worker Rose Tico, which Johnson described as the film's largest new role.[20][21] To maintain Frank
Oz's return as Yoda a secret, producers excluded Oz's name in the billing for the film's marketing and ensured that Oz stay on set
during filming.[23]

Second unit photography began during pre-production at Skellig Michael in
Ireland on September 14, 2015, due to the difficulties of filming at that
location during other seasons. It would have lasted four days,[57][58][59] but
filming was canceled for the first day due to poor weather and rough
conditions.[60] In November 2014, Ivan Dunleavy, chief executive of
Pinewood Studios, confirmed that the film would be shot at Pinewood,[61]
with filming also occurring in Mexico.[17] In September 2015, del Toro
revealed that principal photography would begin in March 2016;[55] however,
Kennedy later stated that filming would begin in January 2016.[12] The
Skellig Michael, one of the film's main
production began work on the 007 Stage at Pinewood Studios on November locations
15, 2015.[62] Rick Heinrichs served as production designer.[63]

In January 2016, production of Episode VIII was delayed until February 2016, due to script rewrites.[64] Additionally, filming was
potentially in danger of being delayed further due to an upcoming strike between the Producers Alliance for Cinema and Television
.[65] On February 10, 2016, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed
and the Broadcasting, Entertainment, Cinematograph and Theatre Union
that principal photography had begun,[66] under the working title Space Bear.[38] Additional filming took place in Dubrovnik from
March 9 to 16, 2016,[67][68] as well as in Ireland in May.[69] Malin Head in County Donegal and a mountain headland, Ceann Sibeal
in County Kerry, served as additional filming locations.[70] Principal photography wrapped on July 22, 2016,[71] though as of early
September 2016, Nyong'o had not filmed her scenes.[72] In February 2017, it was announced that sequences from the film were shot
in IMAX.[73] Production designer Rick Heinrichs said the original screenplay called for 160 sets, double what might be expected, but
sound stages at Pinewood Studios.[74]
that Johnson did some "trimming and cutting". Ultimately 125 sets were created on 14

According to creature designer Neal Scanlan, "[t]here are more practical effects in this film than any Star Wars film", as the film
implements 180 to 200 creatures created with practical effects, some of which were cut from the final edit.[75] For Yoda's appearance
in the film as a Force ghost, the character was created using puppetry, as was done in the original Star Wars trilogy (as opposed to
computer-generated imagery, which was used to create Yoda in most of the prequel trilogy).[76]

In July 2013, Kennedy announced at Star Wars Celebration Europe that John Williams would return to score the Star Wars sequel
trilogy.[1][77] At a Tanglewood concert in August 2016, Williams confirmed he was scheduled to start scoring Episode VIII.[78]
Williams said he would begin recording the score "off and on" in December 2016 until March or April 2017.[79] On February 21,
, with Williams conducting.[80]
2017, it was confirmed that recording was underway

In January 2015, Disney CEO Bob Iger stated that Episode VIII would be released in 2017,[81] and in March, Lucasfilm announced a
release date of May 26, 2017.[82][83] In January 2016, The Last Jedi was rescheduled for December 15, 2017 in 3D and IMAX
3D.[52][84] On January 23, 2017, the film's title was announced asStar Wars: The Last Jedi.[53] Similarly to The Empire Strikes Back,
Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, "Episode VIII" was included in the film's opening crawl, although not in its official

The Last Jedi had its world premiere in Los Angeles on December 9, 2017.[86] The European premiere was held at London's Royal
Albert Hall on December 12, 2017, with a red carpet event.[87]

A set of eight promotionalpostage stamps were released on October 12, 2017 in the UK by the Royal Mail with artwork by Malcolm
Tween.[88] On September 19, 2017,Australia Post released a set of stamp packs.[89]

Critical response
On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has an approval rating of 93% based on 296 reviews, with
an average rating of 8.2/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi honors the saga's rich legacy while
adding some surprising twistsand delivering all the emotion-rich action fans could hope for." By contrast, the audience score for
the film displays an approval rating of 56%, the lowest of all of the Star Wars films in the online aggregator.[97] On Metacritic, the
film has a weighted average score of 86 out of 100, based on 54 critics, indicating "universal acclaim".[98] Audiences polled by
CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A" on an A+ to F scale,[94] while ComScore reported audiences gave an average
five-out-of-five stars to the film, with an 89% overall positive score and a 79% definite recommend.

Writing for Rolling Stone, Peter Travers gave the film 3.5 out of 4 stars, praising the cast and the direction: "You're in hyper-skilled
hands with Johnson who makes sure you leave the multiplex feeling euphoric. The middle part of the current trilogy, The Last Jedi
ranks with the very best Star Wars epics (even the pinnacle that is The Empire Strikes Back) by pointing the way ahead to a next
generation of skywalkers and, thrillingly, to a new hope."[99] Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times gave the same rating,
saying, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi...doesn't pack quite the same emotional punch [as The Force Awakens] and it lags a bit in the
second half, [but] this is still a worthy chapter in the Star Wars franchise, popping with exciting action sequences, sprinkled with
good humor and containing more than a few nifty 'callbacks' to previous characters and iconic moments."

Conversely, Richard Brody of The New Yorker wrote, "Despite a few stunning decorative touches (most of which involve the color
red) and that brief central sequence of multiple Reys, the movie comes off as a work thats ironed out, flattened down, appallingly
purified. Above all, it delivers a terrifyingly calculated consensus storytelling, an artificial universality that is achieved, in part,
through express religious references."[101] Kate Taylor of The Globe and Mail gave the film 2/4 stars, saying the film suffered from
too many new additions and writing, "Nifty new animals, a maturing villain, a flagging heroine, muffled humour as it seeks to
uphold a giant cultural legacy, this unfolding trilogy struggles to maintain a balance that often seems just out of reach."

Episode IX, the final installment of the sequel trilogy, is scheduled to be released on December 20, 2019.[103] Principal photography
of on the film is set to begin in June 2018.[104] Prior to her death in December 2016, Carrie Fisher had been expected to appear in
Episode IX.[105][106] Though Fisher's family granted the rights to use recent footage of Fisher for Star Wars: Episode IX,[107] Fisher
will not appear in the film[108][109] and Lucasfilm will not digitally generate new footage of her

Although Colin Trevorrow had initially been attached to direct the film, on September 5, 2017, Lucasfilm announced that Trevorrow
had stepped down as director.[111] A week later, Lucasfilm announced that J. J. Abrams would return to direct Episode IX and co-
write it with Chris Terrio, with the co-writers stating that Episode IX will bring together all three trilogies, with elements from
