This is the eighth installment in the series and has beaten Revenge of the Sith which clocked at 2 hours 20 minutes and The Force Awakens at 2 hours 15 minutes, while the shortest film was the original offering A New Hope from 1977 at 2 hours and 5 minutes.

The latest Star Wars film is expected to answer a lot of burning questions about the franchise while tackling at least three plot lines and a multi-layered story with many twists and turns thrown in. The film will also be a worthy bridge between The Force Awakens and the ninth installment.

As per the CNET report, in other interesting updates, Rogue One director Gareth Edwards has a cameo in The Last Jedi, and that Johnson had asked JJ Abrams to tweak the ending of The Force Awakens so that R2-D2 would accompany Rey to meet Luke rather than BB-8.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, starring Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Adam Driver, is slated to release on 15 December.
