Star Wars: The Last Jedi • December 13, 2017 Page 4 Star WarS © & tM 2017 LucaSfiLM Ltd. "Let the past die. Kill it, if you have to. That's the only way to become what you were meant to be." - Kylo Ren This brings us to Kylo Ren's journey in the film. "The Force Awakens" showed us that the Force- wielding villain had his own inner conflicts. Footage from the latest trailer shows him flying an attack craft toward a Resistance capital ship containing his mother, General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher). With his finger on the trigger, he hesitates. It's not clear whether he fires or not. Though he did dispatch his father Han Solo (Harrison Ford) during the climax of the previous film, there does still seem to be good in him. Perhaps "The Last Jedi" will involve a journey back from the darkness for the character. Any mention of Fisher must include a note of sadness at the actress's premature death in 2016. Though she had completed the vast majority of her filming for "The Last Jedi," there were rumored plans to feature her heavily in future films. Both Johnson and Kennedy have said that her performance in "The Last Jedi" is one of the strongest of her career, so it looks like her final bow will be worthy of her legacy. As Star Wars fans get ready for the premiere, the future of the franchise looks bright. Director Ron Howard is moving ahead on a Han Solocentric prequel film, while J.J. Abrams will return to finish the sequel trilogy with a sequel to "The Last Jedi." No matter what twists and turns are in store for us – and there are sure to be many – it's a wonderful time to be a Star Wars fan.
