No point in wasting you’re time. Here’s the trailer:
Well, that’s a fucking trailer.
There’s certainly a ton to unpack here. Lot’s of big action set-pieces, as is status-quo for trailers like this (the desert planet with the walkers is particularly striking). But there also a surprising amount of character moments shown off here. Luke talking about being scared, Kylo exhibiting mommy issues, Finn facing off against Phasma, and of course, the potential foreshadowing of Rey turning to the dark side.
I’d also be remiss if I didn’t mention the porg. Porgs rule.
I gotta say, I’m honestly surprised we’re seeing this much of the film. Disney played their cards pretty close to the vest with The Force Awakens. Here, we actually see Snoke. What a change of pace. Not that I’m complaining.
The trailer leans pretty hard into Rey’s potential turn to the dark side, which leads me to believe this is a misdirection. Hell, I’m sure half of the character beats I pointed out in this trailer were intentionally cut to mislead. Either way, it looks like Rian Johnson has created something truly incredible here. I can’t wait.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters December 15th. You should probably try to buy your tickets now.
