If you’re desperately awaiting the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, join the club. However, Disney shareholders got the first glimpse of The Last Jedi footage from the much anticipated film and one person shared what they saw in the meeting.
If you’re spoiler free, stop reading and impatiently wait for the official trailer.
If you kept reading, here’s what was shared to Slash film.
- A scene with Luke Skywalker (in some sort of cave or maybe one of the stone huts seen on his island?) saying “Who are you?”
- Poe Dameron in his X-Wing yelling “It’s now or never” as it cuts back to BB-8.
- Fighters flying through a line-up of the Resistance fleet – had a feel similar to Rogue One over Scarif.
- Chewbacca roars.
- A shot of Captain Phasma.
- Finn dressed as a First Order Officer on the bridge of a First Order ship. Actress Kelly Marie Tran was standing to Finn’s left, also dressed in a First Order uniform.
- Several shots of Rey igniting and spinning Luke’s lightsaber.
- Rey’s hand, in slow motion, with all five fingertips touching the ground and pebbles and dirt hovering around her hand.
- Leia turning to the camera with a hologram of the fleet behind her.
- An X-wing flying into a hangar, possibly the Resistance’s since it looked like another X-wing was parked there – with the nose of the X-wing flaring/popping upwards as the X-wing braked quickly in the air.
- There was also a wide shot of the island, with Rey out on the point of a ridge practicing with her lightsaber as Luke is farther up the ridge, looking down towards her.
There are some things that aren't necessarily surprising, such as Chewbacca roaring or a shot of Captain Phasma. But let's be honest, it's always great to see Chewie. It'll be hard to see him without Han. The same things goes for Leia and with Carrie Fisher passing away, it'll make her scenes even more emotional.
Given how The Force Awakens ended, it was to be expected that Luke would start training Rey. We still have to wait and see if Rey or Luke is the 'last Jedi' and if Rey is a Skywalker like many suspect. It's exciting that Rey is learning how to use the force.
What's most interesting is that Finn is dressed as a First Order Officer. It's doubtful that he rejoined the First Order and he's most likely using his previous connections to infiltrate the First Order. Is Finn a double agent?
There isn’t a release date for an official trailer, but many believe (and hope) it’ll happen at the Star Wars Celebration happening in Orlando, April 13-16.
The Last Jedi will be released on December 15 and was both written and directed by Rian Johnson. Which of the The Last Jedi footage descriptions are you the most excited about? Let us know in the comments below.
