Fresh from Star Wars Celebration in Florida this weekend, comes the very first trailer for Episode VIII, The Last Jedi.
An ending, or a beginning?
So as you might expect, that early look at this year’s The Last Jedi is more than a little cryptic. The end of the Jedi order? Rey in training with Luke Skywalker? And is Finn using the Force or dead?! While we won’t know the answers to the questions for a while yet, we can certainly guess.
I’m betting that the stuff with Luke is out of sequence here, and that it takes more than a little convincing to get him to return. Rey is definitely the chosen heir though, but that was obvious. I do have to wonder about Finn though, and whether or not he’ll turn out to be a Force-wielder as well. Could Luke (or maybe even Rey) assemble a new order to battle against the First Order? Could be.
Actually, that’d be pretty awesome, and maybe even a return of sorts to the big Jedi fights in the prequels. Hey come on, I know they weren’t the most popular of movies, but those battle sequences were pretty much all solid.
Expect Star Wars: The Last Jedi to hit theaters on December 15th.
