Today, it was announced that the next installment of the Star Wars franchise—Episode VIII—will be called “The Last Jedi” and will hit theaters in December. But, who exactly is the the title referring to? There are a lot of theories, not to mention that “jedi” can be plural.
But, as some observant fans have noted, there’s reason to believe that the movie is about Luke Skywalker, because the opening crawl of The Force Awakens (which you can see here) uses the exact phrase when referencing him.
Intentional plot clue, or misdirection? We may have to wait a few months to find out.
Looking for a different kind of “hotel” experience? A German travel company called Null Stern (it translates to "zero stars") has created a hotel room with a comfortable bed, reading lamps and modern design—everything you’d expect, that is, besides walls or a roof over your head. But, considering the location, high in the scenic Swiss Alps, you might not want one.
The bathroom is about a five-minute walk down the mountain, but, guests do get the services of butler, who will prepare meals and get the bed ready, all for just over $200 a night. Though, if you want the open-air sleeping experience, you’ll need to be willing to wait. The “room” is already booked through the end of the year. Discuss
