So, something pretty big happened while I was in Los Angeles last weekend...I went to the STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Press Event! I KNOW, RIGHT?! It was so exciting! I also participated in interviews with some of the cast afterwards (Laura Dern (“Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo”), Gwendoline Christie (“Captain Phasma”), Domhnall Gleeson (“General Hux”) and Kelly Marie Tran (“Rose Tico”), so make sure that you come back next week and check out my posts about those conversations!
STAR WARS: The Last Jedi Press Event
Where do I even begin? There is so much to say about this experience...sitting there in the same room with the amazing cast, listening to these incredibly talented actors discussing what it was like to work on such an iconic film...words can not adequately express what it was like to attend in person!
Oh...I even got a Star Wars present when I checked in! I am so happy that I was given Leia! Could I have been any luckier?!
Director Rian Johnson had a collection of photographs that he took on the set of the new film on display, we got to meet a few super cute characters from the film, have customized tee shirts made right there!
I also got to see all of the super cool Star Wars: The Last Jedi consumer products that will be available in stores and online!
Love that little - well, BIG, life-sized Porg? Find it on Amazon here!
You can also find this adorable Porg mug here!

I got to take a cute photo with BB-8, isn't he just adorable? This was so cool because he was interactive!
Of course, I also had to take a photo with BB-9E....

There are some good parts, but it was a bit "try hard" on how many items/characters they could interject from the earlier movies that mostly seemed out of place. Most of the humour was lame. Have not been this disappointed in a Star Wars movie since Jaja Binks took some of my life that I will never get back
