We all kind of expected to see her death. First we did … and then we didn’t. The Last Jedi made unmistakably clear that Leia Organa still has one last mission to complete. In a sense, just like Carrie Fisher.

We are once again back with another closer look at one of the characters in the latest instalment of the Star Wars franchise; The Last Jedi.

We need to talk about Armitage Hux! In our fourth instalment of this series after Luke, Finn and Rey it is time we face the question: who is the Red General? This will contains massive spoilers for The Last Jedi if you haven’t seen it yet!
