Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer Is Upon Us!
As many awoke this morning Friday, April 14 the hot topic was the release of Kendrick Lamar’s latest album Damn. However, that occurrence has quickly taken a back seat to the debut of the trailer for the eighth installment of the Star Wars saga. Star Wars: The Last Jedi, will be bringing the force to the masses once again on Christmas of this year. We get our first look at the epic transformation of Daisy Ridley’s character Rey, into a full blown Jedi warrior. Taking up the task of training Rey will be the legendary hero Luke Skywalker once again played by Mark Hamill.
While the new trailer is undoubtedly epic, it still only gives fans a small taste of what they can expect from the new film. The fate of John Boyega’s character Finn is still ambiguous, as we will once again rejoin this group of endearing characters who came together in The Force Awakens. The classic battle between light and dark is once again prevalent in this trailer for the upcoming movie, and there are some clear similarities between this film and it’s 1977 counterpart.Perhaps the most ominous and foreboding moment in the trailer comes in the final moments as Luke Skywalker utters the line “It’s time for the Jedi to end.” This clearly brings the film’s title into perspective as fans brace themselves for what may, in fact, be the end of an era.
Director Ridley Scott will definitely be looking to give a nod to the past as he hopes to place his stamp on this legendary series of films. Star Wars The Last Jedi comes to theaters Christmas day December 25!
