Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer Review
Another trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was shown to the world on Monday, Oct. 9 during Monday Night Football, and fans are going crazy about it. This is only the second trailer that has been shown, with only two months left until the film is released in theaters.
Before the trailer was broadcast, Director Rian Johnson tweeted out that if fans want to go into the movie completely clean to avoid the trailer, but it is a very good trailer in his eyes.
The trailer starts out with Kylo Ren looking out onto a ship yard and then cuts to a voice over of what sounds like Luke Skywalker talking to Rey about her potential in the force. He says that he had only seen this amount of raw power once before with Kylo, and that he wasn’t afraid then but he is now.
We are also shown the new First Order Gorilla Walkers which are a huge improvement off of the Galactic Empire Walkers. There now have more leg armor, so ships can’t wrap around the legs and bring the Walker down as easily.
We are then shown the section of the trailer that is dedicated to Kylo Ren. We are shown that Kylo is really attempting to destroy the past by breaking his mask and potentially developing into his own person, not only idolizing his grandfather Darth Vader. The trailer then cuts to the space battle where Kylo is going towards Leia’s flagship, and it looks as if he is going to shoot the ship down, completely destroying his past by killing his mother. Though, in the shot is seems as if he is hesitant to shoot the ship down and go all the way into the dark side of the force.
Next in the trailer is a short fight between Finn and Phasma which should have happened in the previous film. This moment probably happens towards the middle of the movie, as Finn’s mission going undercover as a First Order agent comes to an end.
Fans are then shown what Supreme Leader Snoke actually looks like, and he looks pretty amazing, gold robes and all. In the shot, he is torturing Rey, which could either be a vision or she could have been captured and Snoke is torturing her for information on Luke Skywalker.
The final shot is Rey saying that she needs someone to guide her in this crazy world, then Kylo extends his hand out to potentially offer his services. This scene in the trailer seems to be misleading, as these two shots might be in the film but in two separate parts of the movie.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on Dec. 15.
