New Epic ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Trailer is here

By AI Creative Media

“It’s time for the Jedi to end,” Luke tells Rey at the end of the epic first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which premiered at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando on Friday before it was released online. The trailer was live streamed on the YouTube channel of Star Wars.

The Last Jedi is the follow-up to a small relatively unknown movie “The Force Awakens”, and continues to where Awakens left off. Of course that small movie is currently the highest grossing domestic film of all time.

Here we see Rey (Daisy Ridley) on a remote island where she first met the legendary Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), as well as intergalactic space battles, the Millenium Falcon, glimpses of Finn and Kylo Ren, and what seem like an epic battle between the Resistance and The First Order.

Directed by Rian Johnson (“Looper”), also features Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Finn (John Boyega) Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). Later this year, we will find out if “The Last Jedi” lives up to the hype. “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” arrives in theaters on Dec. 15. Watch the trailer below:

Star Wars Land will open 2019 at Disneyland

By AI Creative Media

During Walt Disney’s first quarter 2017 earnings call on Tuesday, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that the Star Wars-themed parks at Disneyland and Walt Disney World will be opening in 2019. The company also made the announcement via Disney Parks blog. Until today, the company remained quiet about the theme parks following its August 2015 D23 Expo announcement.

2019 should be a big year for Star Wars fans; Star Wars: Episode IX, the final chapter in the Star Wars “Skywalker” sequel trilogy, is scheduled for release in the same year.

“As we’ve shared, the Star Wars-themed lands are the largest-ever, single-themed land expansions at Disneyland and Walt Disney World Resorts. At each location, guests will be transported to a never-before-seen planet – a remote trading port and one of the last stops before wild space – where Star Wars characters and their stories come to life.”

But before the 14-acre parks open its gates, “Pandora – The World of Avatar” will open at Disney World’s Animal Kingdom in Orlando on May 27, eight years after James Cameron’s “Avatar” hit theaters.

By AI Creative Media

The sequel to the massively successful 2015 film Star Wars: The Force Awakens finally has a title: Star Wars: The Last Jedi; Disney has just announced on Monday alongside a new poster.

“We have the greatest fans in this or any other galaxy. In appreciation of the fans, we wanted them to be the first to know the title of the next chapter in the Skywalker saga: STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI,” the company said in a statement on the official Star Wars website.

And with the reveal of the title comes the teaser poster, which features the logo in red, not the classic yellow the world has known for decades. No one knows at this point what this means if nothing at all but a teaser. We may have to wait for the first trailer to get some answers.

The film stars Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis. The Last Jedi will also be the late Carrie Fisher’s final film, who died late 2016 on Dec.27. Fisher played General Leia.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, written and directed by Rian Johnson, will hit theaters on December 15, 2017.

By Armando

After many years of searching, “Star Wars” creator George Lucas’s museum has finally found its home: Los Angeles; the project’s directors and the city of Los Angeles announced on Tuesday. The museum is targetting a May 4, 2020, launch, according to LA Mayor Eric Garcetti.

In 2014, it was announced that Lucas would build the 275,000-square-foot museum in Chicago, home to Lucas’ wife Mellody Hobson. A few years later the decision came down between choosing Los Angeles or San Francisco.

For LA, this is another high profile project to be built in its booming architectural landscape, and its expected to provide new jobs as Lucas is expected to spend $1 billion to the construction of the museum.

“After extensive due diligence and deliberation, the Board of Directors of the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art is pleased to announce plans to build the museum in Exposition Park in Los Angeles. We have been humbled by the overwhelmingly positive support we received from both San Francisco and Los Angeles during our selection process. Settling on a location proved to be an extremely difficult decision precisely because of the desirability of both sites and cities.”

The museum will be built in Exposition Park, near other museums such as the California Science Center and Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, while across the street is the the University of Southern California, where Lucas is an alumnus to its film school.

He is planning to finance the project and has been trying to build the museum for almost a decade.

According to, the collection will be a process of continuous expansion, and will focus on “three lenses”: The History of Narrative Art, The Art of Cinema, and Digital Art, which features various digital art form categories such as cinema, illustration, fine art, sculpture, and architecture. The museum plans to complete its new building and open its doors by 2021.
