The anticipation for the latest film in the Star Wars saga is growing more and more with every day.
Ever since the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released at Celebration a couple of months ago, fans have been poring over every detail trying to figure out where the next entry could possibly lead.
Though Lucasfilm had previously announced the release date of December 15 for the movie, it looks like fans in the United Kingdom will have an opportunity to see the film earlier. Disney revealed the film will now be released in theaters one day earlier on December 14.
The Last Jedi is still scheduled for December 15 in the United States and everywhere else—the new date is only for the UK.
So if you’re absolutely dying to see the film as soon as you possibly can, you might want to book a flight to somewhere in the UK. And make sure you get your passport ready for the trip.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the highly anticipated second entry in the brand new trilogy, written and directed by Rian Johnson. While details of the film’s plot have been shrouded in secrecy, some tidbits have trickled out here and there—most recently in a profile from Vanity Fair where we learned more about the major players and their motivations in the new film.
We’re excited to see Rey’s journey continue under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker, as well as what’s sure to be an emotional experience for viewers when the late Carrie Fisher reprises the role of Leia Organa for the last time.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters December 15 (unless you live in the UK).
