So like many, we all have been waiting for this day to come. Star Wars The Last Jedi teaser trailer has finally released.
Digging into The Last Jedi
Hearing Luke voice finally was awesome. Instead of seeing him at the end of The Force Awakens staring at Rey while she hands him Anakin Skywalker’s light saber. We know Luke will play a huge roll in The Last Jedi. When we hear Luke tell Rey to breathe it was a Easter egg. A passing of the mantle, of Yoda telling Luke to breathe in Dagobah from Empire Strikes Back.
Continuing further into the trailer we hear more of Luke’s voice saying “What do you see?” We get a shot of a command center where we see the back of General Leia, Rey saying “Light”. We then get a new shot of a mask all destroyed and into pieces then Rey saying “darkness”. Looking at this scene over and over again I am going to say this is Kylo Ren’s mask. We will probably see Kylo with a new mask of some kind, more Vaderness.
The next scene looks like a old tree where it scrolls in closer and we see a hand touching (probably Rey) an old insignia of the Jedi and Rey says “Balance”
Quoting from Wookiepedia if you don’t know much bout “The Grey Jedi”: The term Gray Jedi, or Gray, had two meanings. First, it was used by Jedi and Sith to describe Force-users who walked the line between the light and dark sides of the Force without surrendering to the dark side. Secondly, it described Jedi who distanced themselves from the Jedi High Council and operated outside the structures of the Jedi Code. However, those who were considered to be true Gray Jedi met both qualifications and did not belong to any particular Force tradition. One example was Jolee Bindo, a former Jedi Padawan and a Gray Jedi that served the Old Republic.
Qui Gon Jinn was consider a “Grey Jedi” due to his disagreement with The Jedi Council.
More stuff going on
Continuing with the trailer we see Rey training with Anakin Lightsaber with Luke watching on. Then looks like a new tundra style planet with a several ships blanketing it with a red cloud of some kind. We then get a look at Finn in a Bacta Tank still recovering from is injury from Kylo Ren. Then we see Poe and BB-8 racing to the hanger before their X-Wing gets destroyed prolly from attack of the “First Order”. We get a quick shot of the Millennium Falcon in combat with some tie fighters.
Lucasfilm playing with our heads
The final scene we hear Kylo voice now, first shot we see Rey running with Anakin lightsaber ignited, Kylo saying “I only know one Truth” with a shot of Kylo without his mask and having his cross-saber ignited (going to say this is near the end of the film in lightsaber battle with Rey or Luke). We then get a scene prolly a vision of Rey or Flashback of Luke of what happened where The Knights of Ren slaughter Luke’s students from the scene of Luke falling to his knees with R-2D2 beside him. Captain Phasma makes a quick appearance here. We get a quick space battle scene with the final scene of a shadow figure in a cave looking back which is Luke with Kylo saying “it’s time for the Jedi to end.” This is a tricky one because it sound’s like Kylo is saying ” It’s time for the Jedi” with Luke saying “to end.” Maybe Lucasfilm throwing a curveball.
What’s to come
So there you have it folks our first teaser to Star Wars “The Last Jedi” I honestly hope we see Hayden Christensen make an appearance in this film as a force ghost with him making an appearance at Celebration. I do think Disney/Lucasfilms has 1 more card up there sleeve and that will be the 3rd anthology film. Han Solo is filming already, sounds like Star Wars Episode 9 might begin filming in July. I’m going to say the 3rd anthology film will be Ewan McGregor coming back for a Ben Kenobi movie. So sound off and post your theories in the comments below. It is an exciting weekend for all us Star Wars fans!!!
