Star Wars Episode 8 – The Last Jedi
Star Wars Episode 8 is due for UK release on the Author of this blog’s birthday. Although the author also expects to be working on his birthday. So what does the next, the eighth Star Wars Movie in the series have in store for us. No doubt there will be some amazing special effects and a story line to follow on from Star Wars Episode 7. Lego are on board again with the Star Wars Franchise and Silly Billy’s received their delivery of Star Wars Episode 8 products from the Danish Toy Company earlier than most, August in fact, prompting one very keen Star Wars and LEGO fan to drive from London to purchase a Resistance Bomber 75188.
It is mentioned that Princes Harry and William have cameo roles in the latest Star Wars movie, the royal pair visited the set of The Last Jedi in April 2016 and were rumoured to have filmed a scene in disguise. Now lead actor John Boyega, who plays reformed stormtrooper Finn, has confirmed that he shared a scene with the royal duo “wrapped in stormtroopers costumes”
So another date for your diary will be December 15th 2017, not only to buy the author of this blog a birthday present, but also to get to the Cinema and watch the opening of Star Wars Episode 8 – The Last Jedi
Official Trailer Below
Star Wars The Force Awakens 2015, scored a pretty reasonable 8.1 on IMDB and personally I though the return of Star Wars was pretty impressive. Rogue One (2016), on the other hand slipped a couple of notches at only 7.9 on IMDB and again released on the author’s birthday, 15/12/2016.
As far as the new Star Wars Episode 8 – The Last Jedi goes it is anyone’s guess as to whether it will be a hit or get massively slated by the critics. A Customer today said of Star Wars Episode 8, “I’m not holding out much hope..”
Personally, as the Film is being released on one of the most auspicious days of the year (the author’s birthday) then we believe it will be a great hit, however only time will tell.

With the LEGO Ninjago movie only recently released, internet pundits are already looking at the LEGO Movie 2 which is supposedly going to be released in 2019
An excellent movie’s structure blocks come from solid plot products. Take the example of The LEGO Film, which turned what might have been a crass movie franchise capitalising the toy brand into something with actual emotional depth. So naturally, with The LEGO Film 2 in the works, people are beginning to question simply where that movie might go to mine the same depths that the very first film finished with father/son relationships. Well, as it turns out, the follow up has currently been set up to deal with one specific social construct: gender concerns. Speaking up at a recent junket with other producer Dan Lin, Chris McKay exposed precisely what The Lego Motion picture 2 is going to check out.
The Duplo represents Finn’s sister, Finn being the little boy from the live-action. The Duplo is her. The man upstairs stated, ‘You’ve got ta play with your sister. That’s the important things you have actually got ta assure me. I’ll let you have fun with my world, however now you have actually got ta let your sister been available in and have fun with your world.’ Now, she’s coming in, which’s the major thing that the movie has to do with. What’s different and comparable about gender, when a young boy plays vs. how a girl plays? What type of stories are there? Chris and Phil are super fucking smart and really thoughtful and sensitive writers. The kinds of questions and the interesting ideas that they’re getting into with this movie, it’s going to resemble the very first LEGO Movie was, where it’s about something else that’s truly profound.During an interview with producers Chris McKay and
Dan Lin ahead of The LEGO Ninjago Film, McKay told Collider how The LEGO Movie 2 will approach the concerns of gender, through a setup that was consisted of in the first movie’s ending. If you saw the film, you might remember the Male Upstairs allowing both of his kids to have fun with the Brickburg playset. We found out previously that the brand-new motion picture would be a story about the young boy getting a little bit older, and thanks to the gap in between The LEGO Movie 2 and its forbearer, this also indicates that a lot is probably going to change with the now blended community of Duplos and Legos. Not only will Finn’s LEGO toys now have to discover how to get along with the Duplos’similar, but not absolutely compatible play system, they’ll have to discover the ways of their intruders’ custom-mades of play.At the end of The LEGO Motion picture, the setup for the sequel may have seemed like the type of situation that would generally
be thrown out, only to be mentioned briefly when subsequent follows up entered into play. Believe back to when Toy Story exposed that Andy got a puppy at Christmas in its finale, only to have the pet dog look like a small side character in both of the movie’s follows up. Thankfully, McKay and Lin are using the script for The LEGO Motion picture 2 in order to take on an interesting topic, and likewise to tell a cohesive story in between the 2 sequels.If you don’t truly remember how the first film closed out– we have seen The LEGO Batman Film because then– you can inspect
it out, below.It’s quite possible that rather of simply viewing an entire LEGO Motion picture narrative worldwide of Bricksburg, with the twist of a live action narrative creeping in, both sides may be more organically mixed this time around. It’s something that definitely seems to be
