The Last Jedi Season 1 TV Preview
Now that Rey has finally located the whereabouts of Luke Skywalker, she brings him back to join the battle against the dark forces. But Skywalker sees powers in her, powers unlike anything he has seen before, and he decides to train her in the ways of the Jedi.
In this eighth episode of the Star Wars franchise, we also discover how Luke became the teacher of his nephew, Kylo Ren, and the errors he made which resulted in Kylo turning to the dark side with Snoke, the head of the First Order. Fans of previous films will be pleased to see returning characters such as Chewbacca, R2-D2 and even Yoda, along with lots of lightsaber swinging action.
Starring Daisy Ridley (Silent Witness), John Boyega (Detroit), Mark Hammill (Knightfall), and Pedro Pascal (Ex Macina), The Last Jedi movie arrived in Australia on December.

Must See TV for fans of The Last Jedi
As Disney Plus has exclusive rights to all of their own productions, much of the content is only available via their platform. There are many movies and series that are shared with other services, such as Deadpool and the Avengers films, but new and future Disney programming will be premiered exclusively on their streaming platform.
This means that recent productions such as Avengers Endgame and The Last Jedi will not be available on any other streaming platform or TV channel for the foreseeable future. So with this in mind, here’s a list of similar TV Shows that fans of Encore may also enjoy watching.

Luke Skywalker has gone missing, and there is a new evil on the rise in the shape of the First Order and Kylo Ren, a member of the dark side with Jedi-like powers. But the Force is strong in a scavenger called Rey, who seemingly has the promising mindset of a Jedi knight. The Force Awakens is available to watch and stream now on Disney Plus.

Marvel Hero Project is a documentary series that looks at some of the most remarkable young children that have brought positive change to their communities in the USA. And, as homage, Marvel creates comic books based on their stories, giving a legacy to their work. Marvel Hero Project is exclusively available now on Disney Plus.
