The Last Jedi celebrates the fact of forgetting the past and going on to build up a new future. The Force Awakens marked the celebration of the original saga but Last Jedi bid a farewell to it.

Star Wars – The Last Jedi Movie Review
The Last Jedi is a movie packed with action, humour and drama and is engaging enough to keep the audience stick to the movie. The Last Jedi has the most serious yet the funniest moments with silliest dialogue deliveries and the most stupid interactions among the characters. However, The Last Jedi offers a lot of questions that needed an answer essential for the first and last part of the trilogy. Even in this part, the victory has been on the favour of the intergalactic heroes and the last few scenes throw a glimpse about the future of these heroes.
This movie has received 5/5 stars by Hindustan Time and has earned an IMDb rating of 8.2/10 which is quite a good score. It has earned 93% on Rotten Tomatoes making it one of the highest grossing movie. The movie is being doing a good business in all the countries where it has been released. The sequel to this, Star Wars: Episode IX is scheduled for December 20, 2019.
For a movie, that has earned such great critical acclaims and such higher rankings, it is a must watch for the audience. The movie released today in India and it would be great to see how the Indian Audience praises the movie.
