It’s Star Wars Celebration this weekend in London, and much of the action at the event will be livestreamed at StarWars.com and on Youtube. You can find out more about the livestream here.

The focus will no doubt revolve around Rogue One, but who knows, perhaps we will get some info on Episode VIII!

Episode VIII, written and directed by Rian Johnson, will be released December 15 2017. 

FILM RATING

I live by the sea near my original hometown Portsmouth – the UK’s only island city! (That makes it sound way better than it really is.) When I say I’m ‘near Portsmouth’, I’m actually over the water on the Isle of Wight. My parents moved here when I was three. They took me with them. I loved books and wanted to be a writer or an actress. When I was ten my dad told my mother to stop buying me books because he didn’t want me to get “big-headed”. I left school at 13 (I have something in common with Jennifer Lawrence!) and then shortly after I went back to The Mainland. Amazingly, I went to university, where I acted in plays. I wanted to be an actress but stage fright nixed that. I’m currently stranded back on the Isle of Wight. After university, I went to live with my dad again. I was his caretaker through his depression, cancer and pulmonary fibrosis. He died October 2018. Slow to the Party was born the following year. I’d blogged on and off for a bit, but it helped me after his death to dedicate myself to it, while I rebuild (hopefully) my new life. I’m always a little slow to the party. Stuff just gets in the way.

REVIEW:

I know what you’re all thinking, why didn’t I go to see this in the cinema? I didn’t, life got in the way. So, I’ve finally been able to settled down and watch it on Now TV. And what a movie!! It ties in so well with the ‘Star Wars’ franchise while still being a stand alone story. The introduction to the main character is intense, but vital to the storyline. The story is constantly driving forward, there are no slow parts, yet it perfectly tells the story. ‘Rogue One,’ has everything in it. It’ll make you laugh, cry, be sad then happy. There are plenty of “Oh no” moments, as well as “Ahh” moments. The cast of ‘Rogue One’ has chemistry and play off each other well. This movie is definitely a must watch if you haven’t seen it yet. So what are you playing at? Give it a chance, you might be pleasantly surprised. Until next time folks!!

LUCASFILM & DISNEY ANNOUNCE A NEW STAR WARS TRILOGY

Published

on

Lucasfilm and Disney Pictures have announced a new Star Wars trilogy in the works. The company has entrusted Episode VIII Director Rian Johnson to helm the story. The New trilogy will not follow the Skywalker family and will take us an entirely new direction in Star Wars lore. Some have speculated we will see stories revolving around the old republic. Others believe we will see the return of Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan. A Star Wars television series is also expected to be launched by the end of 2019.

“We all loved working with Rian on ‘The Last Jedi,’” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “He’s a creative force, and watching him craft ‘The Last Jedi’ from start to finish was one of the great joys of my career. Rian will do amazing things with the blank canvas of this new trilogy.”

Rian Johnson and his long time partner Ram Bergman reciprocated their feelings about working with Lucasfilm and Disney:

“We had the time of our lives collaborating with Lucasfilm and Disney on ‘The Last Jedi,’ ” Johnson and Bergman said in a joint statement. “ ‘Star Wars’ is the greatest modern mythology and we feel very lucky to have contributed to it. We can’t wait to continue with this new series of films.”
