Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi

Categories: [ TV/Cinema/Star Wars ]



The Resistance evacuates their base when attacked by the First Order. Poe leads a reckless attack against a dreadnought, loosing all bombers and many fighters. Despite jumping to hyperspace, the First Order fleet manages to follow them, and, low on fuel, they have no hope to escape them as long as their tracking device is operational. Despite his orders Poe, Finn and Rose plans to infiltrate Snoke's star dreadnought, but they first need a hacker able to break the various locks on the way to the tracking device's circuit breakers. Finn and Rose find a hacker on Canto Bight and make a narrow escape to the star dreadnought, where they are caught before being able to disable the tracking device. In the meanwhile, Rey meets Luke on Ahch-To, but he refuses to teach her about the ways of the Jedi. Luke is afraid of losing Rey just like he lost Ben Solo to the dark side, who became then Kylo Ren, killing all the other Jedis in training. Luke eventually changes his mind and teaches Rey. During that period, Rey and Kylo are telepathically put in contact, and Rey is convinced that Kylo can be redeemed. She then leaves without Luke and confronts Kylo, who takes her prisoner on the dreadnought and present her to Snoke. While Snoke gloats, Kylo kills Snoke and asks Rey to join him on the dark side. The last rebels escape their last cruiser on small transports that cannot be tracked, while the cruiser rams the dreadnought. In the ensuing chaos, Finn and Rose on one side and Rey and the other escape and join the remaing rebels on an abandonned base on Crait. Their calls for help remain unaswered. Kylo Ren's troops attack the base, but they are distracted by the sudden apparition of Luke (actually a angible projection, Luke having never left Ahch-To), who eventualy dies of exhaustion. The last rebels escape from the base and board the Falcon with Rey.
