Win tickets for Star Wars: The Last Jedi
PUBLISHED: 20:00 11 December 2017
Sci-fi franchise Star Wars returns to the big screen on Thursday and Weston's Odeon is offering Mercury readers a chance to win tickets to see the keenly-anticipated release.
After a two-year wait, episode eight in the blockbuster series, The Last Jedi, will be released on December 14, and three family tickets are up for grabs.
The Last Jedi follows on immediately from the end of the previous episode, The Force Awakens.
Starkiller Base may have been destroyed, but the First Order is far from defeated and the war between its legions and the Resistance grows ever more fierce.
The Resistance could really use a Jedi Knight on their side – but Luke Skywalker has decided that it’s time for the Jedi to end.
A new generation of heroes has risen up to fight the revived Dark Side, joined by some old hands who fought in the rebellion.
Returning to the silver screen will be British actors Daisy Ridley and John Boyega.
Rey (Ridley) develops her newly discovered abilities with the guidance of Luke (Mark Hamill) who is unsettled by the strength of her powers.
The film will be notable as one of the late Carrie Fisher’s final performances – her character Princess Leia was an icon of the original trilogy in the 1970s and 1980s.
Various teaser trailers and clips have whet fans’ appetites over the past few months, as anticipation has steadily built up.
The eighth episode is written and directed by Rihas Johnson, an American filmmaker best known for 2012 American neo-noir sci-fi thriller Looper.
The Mercury has teamed up with Weston Odeon, in The Centre, to offer three lucky families the chance to win tickets to see The Last Jedi at a time of your choice.
This competition will end at 10am on December 22. Archant rules apply and the editor’s decision is final.
Thanks for your interest but this competition has now closed
