“Breathe. Just breathe. Now, reach out. What do you see?” says Luke Skywalker to his apprentice in Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser trailer.This Christmas 2017, the Star Wars saga continues from where Star Wars: The Force Awakens left off – the two Jedi’s meeting on Earth-like Ahch-To.
From Finn catching his breath from a crash on Jakku to Rey gasping for air on Ahch-To, Lucas Film has a knack for shocking viewers with emotional gasps on their teasers. This teaser starts with Rey (Daisy Ridley) gasping right before we hear a voice over of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) mentoring. The clip then skims over Ahch-To then gives us a glimpse of Rey’s hand as she channels the force.
We then hear Rey answer to Luke’s question above saying, “Light. Darkness. A balance.” This line and another intriguing one at the end of the clip have resulted to theories. After a little web search, here are some of the speculations gathered for Star Wars: The Last Jedi: (1) Luke Skywalker has embraced both sides of the force and is becoming a gray Jedi, (2) the emergence of the Journal of the Whills (an ancient tome that chronicled the history of the galaxy) and (3) diaries of Luke’s mentor Obi-Wan Kenobi.
As the teaser ends, Luke Skywalker’s last line is the big mind-boggler of them all.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes to theaters this December 2017.
