Now that Star Wars’ first anthology film Rogue One has already proven its mettle in the cinemas last year, legion of fans are now setting their eyes on this year’s next big Star Wars film – Episode VIII The Last Jedi. But before we march into theaters on December 15, the month of September will showcase several new Star Wars toys and product lines that will pay help propel the marketing of the film. September’s Force Friday is sure to attract throngs of Star Wars fans, and LEGO will be at the heat of action with sets that are dedicated to the 8th film instalment from the Disney and Lucas Films.
Brickset has already listed seven LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi sets, and now, we have an idea on how the branding of these box arts will look like as you can see from the image below.
The box art reveals Rey sporting a new hairstyle that gives her a somewhat more sober look. The fact that she seems to be confidently wielding Luke Skywalker’s blue lightsaber also presents a very interesting angle to how events will unfold in The Last Jedi. There has been little change in how Poe and Finn were portrayed, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are not significantly affected by how things will turn out in the film.
We have very little information as of this time regarding the details of The Last Jedi, nor the sets that LEGO has in store for Episode VIII. September is still a bit far off and until then, we will excitingly wait for what Disney and LEGO has in store for us.
What LEGO Star Wars The Last Jedi sets are you eager to see? Any ideas for what these sets could be? Let us know in the comments below or join in the discussion on our Facebook page. Thanks to Brickset for the heads up.
