So sort of surprisingly, we got a new Last Jedi trailer following New York Comic Con and well hey, a new Star Wars trailer is always welcome, anyway let’s get right in. We open to Supreme leader snoke talking about someone (probably…. Kylo Ren I imagine), as he and the first order march into somewhere, that looks quite like the Jedi hideout place look was in.
Rey utilises Lukes lightsaber and hands it to him, doing some training of her own with Luke by her side and she’s powerful all right, enough to sort of surprise Luke it seems (maybe Snoke was talking about Rey?) but what do you know, Luke is a bit scared of her because of her power and potential to go the Dark side and with Vaders and Kylo Rens pasts, who would blame him. Is this Luke turning his back on Rey already? The First Order attacks a rebel fleet and Kylo Ren seemingly is about to out General Leia.
War and conflict seem to be major themes here and speaking of returning characters, Finn and the Chrometrooper are both back and they duke it out, while some new weird but cool looking aliens debut, including a plushy thing and some ice wolves (on the planet the AT-ATs are attacking maybe). And finally we do see Lord Snoke up close and he is talking to an incapacitated Rey as he does some force stuff on her, maybe he’s trying to influence her or something along those lines…. And the final shot is Rey asking for guidance on what she needs to do, sure she’s talking to Luke right…. Nope, she’s talking to Kylo Ren, wait what? Is she going to the dark side just like that? All because Luke rejected her in a way?
It’s very strange but intriguing, I think Rey isn’t straight up evil but she’s a bit confused and just wants guidance from somewhere, Luke being reluctant makes sense but if he abandons Rey altogether, it seems a bit out of character (though he is thinking of Kylo Ren), so yeah interesting stuff, a pretty dark trailer for what is set to be a dark but intriguing film. Luke wants the Jedi to end and won’t train Rey seemingly, Rey seems to want to join with Kylo Ren and the First Order is back. I can’t wait to see it!
