Die-hard fans will be among the first to revisit a galaxy far, far away at just after midnight on December 14, when The Last Jedi is finally released.

And to get people into the mood, the first film produced by Disney since it bought the franchise, The Force Awakens, will be shown first – and you could win tickets to enjoy both movies in Weston.

The Force Awakens, which will start at 9pm on December 13, is set 30 years after the death of the Emperor and the destruction of the second Death Star.

A new generation of heroes has risen up to fight the revived Dark Side, joined by some old hands who fought in the original rebellion.

The film broke box office records when it was released two years ago, and made household names of British stars Daisy Ridley and John Boyega.

The Last Jedi will pick up where The Force Awakens left off, with Rey (Ridley) finding Luke Skywalker and starting her Jedi training.

The war between the First Order and the Resistance is growing more fierce, and heroes and villains will collide, with the fate of the whole galaxy at stake.

And there are numerous burning questions fans will hope to have answered about what happened in the 30 years after the Rebel Alliance’s victory.

It will also include some of the last scenes filmed by the late Carrie Fisher, who was made famous by her turn as Princess Leia in the original trilogy.

The Mercury has teamed up with the Odeon to offer three pairs of tickets to the Star Wars double-bill at the Odeon, in Walliscote Grove Road.

To enter the competition, simply answer the following question: How many years after the death of the Emperor is The Force Awakens set?

Send your answer, along with your name, address and telephone number to: Star Wars competition, Weston & Somerset Mercury, 32 Waterloo Street, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1LW, or alternatively, log onto www.westonmercury.co.uk by 10am on December 11.
