When leaving the theater after watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the first time, many fans had the exact same thought: "I can't wait to see more of these characters." Unfortunately, satisfaction for this feeling took a full two years to arrive, but now it's finally here. Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi (a.k.a. Star Wars: Episode VIII) is only mere days from hitting theaters around the globe, and is ready to tell the next chapter of the legendary big screen saga. Of course, because it's a sequel it will be helpful for audiences to remember what went down last time around, and it's in that department that we're here to help.

Do you plan on seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi this weekend, but have a schedule so busy that it prevents you from watching Star Wars: The Force Awakens again? Don't worry, because we have you covered. Below and across the next few pages we've gone over everything you need to know and remember about the canon so that you'll be fully caught up and on top of ever beat in the new blockbuster. Read on!

Rey Is Taking A Long, Hard Look Into Her Future

As the central heroine of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Rey (Daisy Ridley) saw her life completely change over the course of J.J. Abrams' film -- despite the fact that not a great deal of time passes from beginning to end of the story. She was a simple scrapper living on the desert planet Jakku when we first met her, but a fateful introduction to BB-8 led her on an amazing adventure that saw her meet characters like Finn (John Boyega), Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew); become a member of The Resistance; and discover incredible gifts that have been with her for her entire life.

With that last part we are, of course, referring to the fact Rey is revealed to be Force sensitive: a potential Jedi able to tap into the special energy that binds all things together in the universe. It's while being held captive by Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and the First Order that she first discovers this, and it doesn't take her long to try and learn more about it. After the destruction of the Starkiller Base and a brief return to the Resistance base on D'Qar, Rey joins Chewbacca and R2-D2 for a trip to Ahch-To -- an isolated planet where she comes face-to-face with the legendary Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), and presents him with his long-lost lightsaber.
