Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Release Date in the Philippines

The first official trailer of the epic space opera film Star Wars: The Last Jedi (a.k.a. Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi), has been released yesterday in the United States. Here's the clip from YouTube.


But maybe you're asking when the movie will finally come out to the big screen? In the United States, it's scheduled to be released on December 15, 2017. In the Philippines though, there's no final date yet but it is likely that we will be able to see the soon blockbuster movie on the same date, December 15, 2018.

The Premise

From the Internet Movie Data Base (IMDB): "Having taken her first steps into a larger world in Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), Rey continues her epic journey with Finn, Poe, and Luke Skywalker in the next chapter of the saga."

From Google's Knowledge Graph: "Luke Skywalker's peaceful and solitary existence gets upended when he meets Rey, a young woman who shows strong signs of the Force."



If you don't understand any of the above statements, then you must watch the last episode, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. There, you'll meet the main characters Rey, Finn, Poe, and Luke Skywalker. 

If you don't know Luke Skywalker, then it is a must that you watch the original series, from Episode 1 to 6 that will bring you back to the 1970s when George Lucas first presented his epic work in Episode 5 - A New Hope.

Star Wars Episode VIII and the Metro Manila Film Festival 2017

One thing you must take note of is the amount of time that you have an opportunity to watch the movie. I don't advise anyone to watch on the opening day because I'm quite sure that you'll end up in a very long line in ticket booths. It's just like that for movies like Star Wars. But you should not relax either because of the MMFF or the Metro Manila Film Festival.

During the festival, which runs from Christmas Day (December 25) to the first weekend of January the following year, no foreign movies will be shown in regular theaters, with exception of 3D and IMAX, which, of course, cost significantly higher. The movie might be shown again after the first weekend of January 2018 but it's not guaranteed. So, check your calendars and watch it sometime between December 15 to 24, 2017.

  1. There is nothing more important than giving our best effort, all of the time. On an exam day, a good effort means that students attempt everything, even if that means they need to come back at lunch or after school. Show a work ethic, students, and you will not only do better on the test....you will do better in every aspect of your life.

  2. I am overpowered by your post with such a decent theme. Typically I visit your web journals and get refreshed through the data you incorporate yet the present blog would be the most obvious. Well done!

  3. I get to share my thoughts through my own blog and in sermons most Sunday mornings. Those people who serve the congregation as Worship Weavers often have an opportunity to share their thoughts on things that matter. And people who are a part of a covenant group can talk with each other, Yet there is no good way for most of us to share our thoughts, opinions, musings, and meditations with the wider congregation.
