Star Wars The Last Jedi (2017) Promo Art

I haven’t written any reviews for some time. But I guess writing about Star Wars is a must, especially since reception of the latest movie, the second episode in the third trilogy, has been mixed. Why is that? Apparently it’s not a bad movie, but something seems to be off. Let’s dive into it.
