LUKE IS SCARED. REY IS CONFLICTED. AND KYLO IS STILL AS DAMAGED AS EVER.
“When I found you, I saw raw untamed power.”That’s what Supreme Leader Snoke’s disembodied voice say in the beginning of the trailer.
Star Wars releases first official trailer of ‘The Last Jedi’. After watching it, you’ll wonder what’s really going to happen in the movie.
In The Force Awakens, we know that Rey (Daisy Ridley) is someone powerful that can even match with the Dark Side’s Kylo Ren’s (Adam Driver). And in the trailer, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) terrifyingly states that he only has seen that much power once.
Such power drives Rey in looking for answers in the wrong places. The trailer has made it look like that she is asking desperately for guidance from the Kylo Ren. A seemingly sympathetic Kylo holds out his hand to her.
We might see Rey having second thoughts in accepting Kylo’s help in the movie. Or is that scene not really what it seems. All in all, if this trailer didn’t make you want to watch the movie, then I don’t know what else will.
The trailer also gives appearances of General Leia (Carrie Fisher) who is watching her estranged son Kylo targeting her fleet. And a well-dressed Finn (John Boyega) having a saber fight with Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie). The trailer also asks questions such as will Rey be able to fulfill her destiny? Is it light or dark? And will the damaged and conflicted Kylo Ren finally kill the past? Maybe literally?
With the new trailer, Star Wars also premieres the new movie poster:
