One of 2017’s most anticipated movies hit silver screens everywhere this month and it’s doing a lot more than entertain super fans of all ages. Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a culmination of hope, illuminating performances and more – all powered by Nissan. Discover my exciting Star Wars experience before the film opened to audiences worldwide below!
A week ago, I had the unique opportunity to experience “The Force” and fandom of Star Wars with Nissan in Los Angeles. During the 3-day experience, journalists and Star Wars super fans were challenged to explore the City of Angels, through a unique scavenger hunt inspired by the Star Wars “light side” and “dark side” theme.

The Light Side
Powered by the all new 2018 Nissan Leaf, we left on our mission to explore the way of the Jedi with on our quest to find lost Star Wars sidekick BB-8 in L.A. Our stops included a journey to the famed Griffin Observatory for galaxy exploration and Jedi light saber training at the American School of Martial Arts.

Nissan offers innovative technologies to help keep you safe on and off the road. Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, Blind Spot warning and ProPILOT Assist with Intelligent Cruise Control are just a few ways Nissan’s innovative intelligence is helping you master the drive. Whether you’re conquering the dark side in the 2018 Rogue or the light side in the 2018 Leaf – Nissan is powering drivers to rule the world (and the galaxy).
A fleet of 2018 Nissan Rogue await to take us on our Star Wars “dark side” journey.
The Dark Side
Powered by the all new 2018 Nissan Rogue, we traveled to the top of Los Angeles for an panoramic OUE Skyspace Los Angeles experience which included an alternate universe experience of lights, sounds and even a stunning 360-views of Los Angeles ending with skyslide 1000 feet above LA.

Imagine the height of all things Jedi coming together in a place where super fans converge for a Star Wars marathon screening event to watch “The Phantom Menace”, “Attack of the Clones”, “A New Hope”, “The Empire Strikes Back”, “Return of the Jedi”, “The Force Awakens” all leading up to the premiere of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”. The red carpet experience at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood hosted a variety of iconic Star Wars characters and character-inspired Nissan vehicles. I even got in on the action and dressed up as my favorite Star Wars heroine – Princess Leia.
