What we learned from 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' trailer

What we learned from 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' trailer
16 Apr 2017
  • The first trailer and poster for 'Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi' was unveiled on Friday at the Star Wars Celebration fan event in Florida.
  • The much-anticipated Rian Johnson-directed film sees the return of 'The Force Awakens' stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Adam Driver and most importantly Mark Hamill.
  • Here's five things we learned about the upcoming film from its trailer.

  • Luke Skywalker has a major role

  • In 'The Force Awakens', we only got a fleeting glimpse of Luke Skywalker (played by Mark Hamill).
  • 'The Last Jedi's' trailer indicates that fans will finally get the Luke Skywalker-centered film they missed out on in the previous film.
  • Skywalker appears to have a more Yoda-like role of training Rey (Daisy Ridley) on the ways of the force.

  • Luke Skywalker feels "it's time for the Jedi to end"
    Titled explained
  • Far from training a new generation of Jedi to counter the First Order, Luke concludes, "I only know one truth, it's time for the Jedi to end."
  • By saying this, is Luke simply sulking about his apprentice Ben Solo turning to the Dark Side and becoming Kylo Ren? Or does he mean it?
  • Why must the Jedi end? Why Luke… Why!

  • The dreaded Captain Phasma returns

  • In 'The Force Awakens', the dreaded chrome-plated behemoth Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) was seen about to be dumped down a rubbish chute.
  • But in the upcoming film, she has returned and is seen burning down a building Luke deeply cares about.
  • Could it be the lost Jedi temple Luke was seeking? Or is this some sort of a flashback?

  • Has Kylo Ren ditched his mask for good?
    Kylo Ren
  • In the previous film, Kylo Ren never put his mask back on after removing it and killing his father Han.
  • The trailer shows Ren's Vaderesque mask crushed to oblivion.
  • This feeds into speculation that the new film trilogy will follow Kylo Ren/Ben Solo's journey to the light from the dark side.
  • He's still largely going to remain the main antagonist of 'The Last Jedi'.

  • Carrie Fisher's General Leia Organa to have major role
  • It remains unclear how Disney and LucasFilm will fit in Carrie Fisher's sad demise into Episode IX.
  • She makes an appearance in the trailer, indicating that she'll have an important part in the story, a fact filmmakers have confirmed.
  • Fisher had finished shooting all her scenes for the film before her death.
  • 'The Last Jedi' would likely be a tearful tribute to Fisher.
