Friday’s openings: One more Jedi story

Note: The original version of this post said that the new "Ferdinand" movie was a Disney production. It is not. The management regrets the error.

And then it was Jedi time. Looking ahead to Friday's movie openings, we anticipate the latest "Star Wars" offering.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi": Rey (Daisy Ridley) joins Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) as the Resistance takes on the First Order. Hmmm, where have we heard the kind of plot before? Rebels? Empire?

"Ferdinand": Based on the 1936 children's story about a bull that would rather smell flowers than fight, Blue Sky Studios ("Rio," "Ice Age") and Fox adapt the book into a complete feature film. It's kiddie time.

I'll update further when the local theaters finalize their respective schedules.
