Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer has just been released and we have so many questions; Does Princess Leia say her final goodbye? Does Luke train Rey to become a powerful Jedi? Will Rey betray Luke and join Kylo Ren on the dark side? Will Poe and Finn win their battle against the First Order? How will Supreme Leader Snoke make his mark on the movie? And what the hell is that little thing next to Chewbacca? All of these questions and I don’t know if can wait until December 15th to find out the answers!
The trailer for the eighth instalment of the Star Wars saga, the second after Lucasfilm was purchased by Disney and released The Force Awakens in 2015, was released this morning and fans around the world have gone crazy for it. Their rebooted film certainly raised and recaptured fan’s love for the franchise and left us all wanting more. The release has also been accompanied with an awesome movie poster.
It follows on from where The Force Awakens ends, with Rey & Luke Skywalkker meting face-to-face on an isolated island, with Ray’s hope that Luke is the savior she desires. Ray is then seen training with a lightsaber, presumably under the guidance of Luke, a very similar situation to Yoda training Luke on Dagobah in the earlier Star Wars films. I got goosebumps when Luke says “I’ve seen this raw strength only once before. It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now”.
We then jump to a battle between The Rebels & the First Order, where we are exposed to the dramatic scene of Leia standing worryingly in the control room of a space ship, as Kylo Ren aims his guns towards her. We also see Poe & Finn fighting both by ship and on the ground.
Strangely, before the trailer was unveiled, the Last Jedi director Rian Johnson took to twitter to inform people who did not want to see spoilers to avoid watching it. He tweeted: “I am legitimately torn. If you want to come in clean, absolutely avoid it”. Like that is going to stop people from watching it. It could be a misleading trick from the director and the trailer could put all kinds of theories in fan’s minds. But, if you tell people not to watch the trailer, reverse psychology kicks in and you’re tempted to watch it even more.
Well, if you want to follow Rian’s advice, I suggest you stop reading now. But if like me, you can’t wait for the new film and want to watch the trailer over and over again, take a look below:
