‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Opening Crawl Contest!

With the release of the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, excitement for the latest Star Wars film for us at The Drop is at an all-time high. As we assume everyone else is just as excited for the next Star Wars as we are, we would like to get involved with you all and host a contest. We are asking our readers to write their own opening crawl for The Last Jedi, one which is predictive of what the actual crawl will read this December, and also one that is both creative and interesting. When you think you have a winner, send it to us (contact info listed at the bottom)! The best three entries we receive will be awarded the following prizes:

Third Place – Kylo Ren Funko Pop

Second Place  – Digital HD Code For Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

First Place – The Last Jedi (27×40″) Poster & $15 Fandango Gift Card for The Last Jedi

To help contestants have a general idea of what we are deciding winners on, refer to the following rubric, containing characteristics of what we would consider a winning crawl:


Entries can be submitted and will be considered until Saturday, April 29th at 5:00 CST. Once the deadline has passed, winners will be announced on social media and notified individually!

To submit an entry, emails can be sent to Alexander@thedropnews.com. Any questions can be directed to the same email or via direct messages on Twitter to @Seiborg0.
