Star Wars: The Last Jedi (film) Episode 8. Luke Skywalker’s hermit-like existence on a distant planet is endangered when he encounters Rey, a young woman who just may be the one to continue the Jedi order. Her desire to learn the ways of the Jedi meets with resistance from Luke. Meanwhile, Kylo Ren and General Hux, under Supreme Leader Snoke, lead the First Order in an all-out assault against General Leia Organa and the Resistance for supremacy of the galaxy.
