Just a bit ago, a new trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropped, and I have some thoughts about it. Directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi continues the story began in JJ Abram’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Picking up where The Force Awakens left off, The Last Jedi finds Rey (Daisy Ridley) having just found Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) on the planet Ahch-To. With Rey having taken her first steps into the larger Star Wars universe, The Last Jedi follows her as she continues her journey alongside Finn (John Boyega), Poe (Oscar Isaac), and General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher). As always, further details on the plot are under lock and key, though this trailer seems to provide some more information on that front. (more…)
It’s finally here! A trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and HOLY CRAP. It doesn’t show much, but what it shows is all kinds of incredible. We, finally, hear Luke talk for the first time in these sequel movies, we see Rey doing some training in the Force, there’s a shot of Leia, a shot of what looks like Kylo Ren’s helmet shattered into pieces, some battle footage, some more of that flashback with the Knights of Ren (maybe?) and it all ends with Luke ominously saying, “It’s time for the Jedi to end.”
I mean, talk about a teaser trailer. I couldn’t be more excited for this movie right now. A+ to Disney and Lucasfilm for this trailer. It’s incredible and I can only hope that the actual movie is as good as this trailer looks.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is released in theaters on December 15, 2017.
