Star Wars: The Last Jedi release date brought forward

The release date for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been brought forward. 

The movie was due to hit cinemas on December 15th this year, but will now come a day earlier on December 14th, a day ahead of the US release. 

The Last Jedi sees Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis and the late Carrie Fisher return for the new movie, while Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran join the cast. 

Looper director Rian Johnson writes and directs this new movie. 

The movie is the follow-up to the hugely successful Star Wars: The Force Awakens and picks up directly after that movie with Rey having finally completed the search for Luke Skywalker. You can see the first trailer here.
