Report: The Last Jedi world premiere will be December 8

Buried in a look at the Oscar hopefuls, Variety reports that The Last Jedi will have its world-premiere on December 8, a week before the U.S. release. That’s pretty much in line with past premieres. For those of us at home, all we can hope for is a red carpet livestream, which Lucasfilm did for The Force Awakens and Rogue One.

Lucasfilm’s Last Jedi promotional partners includes… Louboutin?

Lucasfilm has annouced some of their promotional partners for The Last Jedi, and they include some unsurprising names – Nissan, Verizon, General Mills. The real surprise? Christian Louboutin, which is best-known for their distinctive red-soled high heels. But they do have have a beauty line now that they’re playing up in the press release.

But speaking of beauty, Cargo Cosmetics will be debuting a Star Wars line for the holidays. It’ll debut in Kohl’s stores next month.

We can probably expect to hear about more partners and products in the coming weeks.
