The first full trailer has come out for arguably this fall’s most anticipated film, Star Wars: Episode VIII – the Last Jedi. How do things look in the galaxy after The Force Awakens? Well let’s just go ahead and take a look for ourselves.
I feel like its safe to say that things have gotten rather intense.
So much to unpack, I mean what the serious hell?! I think the biggest takeaway would be how heavy Rey and Kylo Ren will feature into the story of Luke Skywalker. Luke hasn’t seen power like Rey’s but only once, and we all know who he is referring to. The struggle Rey and Kylo will go through with their respective mentor will more than likely be the meat of the story awaiting us this December, but man there is so much here. Plus, Finn will get to have his showdown with Captain Phasma, that let’s be honest, should have happened in The Force Awakens, but hey, I enjoy me a good buildup.
Prominently shown of course is Carrie Fisher in her last film role as General Leia Organa and it’ll be interesting to see how this iconic character and woman is sent off.
Honestly, the trailer, and the new poster to boot, look stunning. This certainly will be a darker story going forward as many suspected, but I’m sure many are hoping that The Last Jedi carves out its own unique path with following up the return film. I for one just can’t wait to go into the theater and be blown away!
