Finally a teaser of Star Wars: The Last Jedi is available to view. There’s a lot to take in from this brief teaser. It looks like most of the story will take place on Ahch-To, the planet where Rey found Luke on at the end of Star Wars: Episode 7 The Force Awakens, where Rey will receive some hardcore Jedi training from Master Luke.
I see Finn in a pod with his eyes closed, I am wondering is he still recovering? Poe Dameron running away from an explosion and a couple of battles in space and on ground. At the end, I had a bad feeling about Luke’s horrifying message: “It’s time for the Jedi to end.” What does that mean? Is he joining the dark side? Could that mean his life will end like how Yoda did? Disappearing into thin air.
Not much I can hypothesize from the trailer of episode 8, but I heard there will be a few new casts. Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker finally makes an appearance and get more film time. Kelly Marie Tran is introduced as a new character, Rose, who I don’t know what her role is. According to her film resume, Tran is a comedian actress. Maybe she will bring some humor to this film. Hopefully she isn’t placed in the film to fulfill the diversity checklist.
For episode 8, I look forward to know more about Rey’s story in The Last Jedi and her training with Luke. Also, I would like to know where did they film the location where Rey found Luke in the end of The Force Awakens. Is there such a place? An island with high elevation and bushes. How did the entire Star Wars crew manage to go up there and film the movie? That would be an interesting behind the scene to look forward to.
The trailer of The Last Jedi is certainly getting me excited to watch the film. We’ll find out on December 15, 2017. Meanwhile, check out other movies in theaters from Fandango here. Also, save up to 60% on Movie Tickets and Concessions with Dealflicks here.
