Star Wars: The Last Jedi Gets An Early UK Release Date

We get to find out Rey's secret origin before the US

We're getting used to feeling a bit spoiled in the UK when it comes to blockbuster movies, which increasingly come out on this side of the Atlantic ahead of the US.

We can now add Star Wars: The Last Jedi to that list, as it will be arriving a day earlier than originally scheduled.

Rian Johnson's film will now be released on Thursday, 14 December, rather than Friday, 15 December.

With the film arriving in the UK first, this will give us a chance to find out the answers to our big questions, like who are Rey's parents and where did Supreme Leader Snoke come from (assuming the film does the decent thing and doesn't keep us hanging until Episode 9).

Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran will star in the movie.

Disney has promised an increased role for Carrie Fisher, who completed filming before her death in December 2016.
