On the heels of the release of the amazing behind-the-scenes video for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, character posters are here! The General — she’ll always be royalty to us! — Finn, and Rey are the first to be revealed. Should more be released, this post will be updated. For now, enjoy!
**UPDATED** to add Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, and Poe Dameron.
There is much on my mind as the burgeoning spoils of spring emerge. I’m restless, antsy, ready for change. Full of new hope. Here in Western Pennsylvania, USA, the change of seasons can be dramatic, but even years like this one in which the winter is barely existent, the coming of spring has this effect. (WARNING! Major Deadpool SPOILERS!!)
“I’m hoping Lor San Tekka knows where to find my brother, Poe. And Luke Skywalker may be the only hope we have left.”- General Leia Organa, ‘Before the Awakening’
In the past 38 years between A New Hope and The Force Awakens, the former Princess Leia, now dubbed General Organa, has found herself right back where she started, searching for her Only Hope. Granted, in A New Hope we are led to believe that Ben Kenobi is the only hope she is looking for, when in fact, it is Luke Skywalker. It’s always been him. They were separated in order to remain safe, safely anonymous and in time, when it was right, they were to be reunited. The force is a calling and when it calls, you cannot deny your destiny or that which is your family, especially if you happen to be a Skywalker.
