With fewer than three months until the worldwide premiere of the theatrical debut of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, post-production on the film has officially wrapped…
Director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson, has announced, via his Instagram account, that post-production on the film has officially wrapped, meaning the official cinematic trailer for Episode VIII is not too far behind.
With speculation that Star Wars fans will see the cinematic trailer sometime in early October, during the usual Monday Night Football game on ESPN (a Disney owned property), and with the announcement that the film is already generating early Oscar buzz, the excitement for The Last Jedi has never been higher.
