There’s a new teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi in which Rey promises Luke that she won’t fail him like Kylo Ren did. It also suggests that she might not be asking for Kylo Ren’s help after all.
WARNING: Star War: The Last Jedi SPOILERS to follow.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is easily 2017’s most anticipated movie. There’s no question about it. People the world over want to know what Luke’s been up to during all those years. We want to know what’s up with Kylo Ren, but most of all, people are fascinated by Daisy Ridley’s Rey. Where does she come from? Which side of the Force will end up on, if any? Is she related to Luke? To Palpatine? To Kylo Ren…? the questions surrounding this character and this new Star Wars saga are endless and most probably won’t all be answered in Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. That said, there’s a new trailer in which Rey clearly shows that he doesn’t want to let Luke down. Check it out below.
OK, so we’re getting quite a few The Last Jedi teasers and trailers now and you probably all just want to wait until the film comes out, which is completely understandable. That said, most of this teaser isn’t anything we haven’t seen before. We’ve seen most of the clips in this teaser, yet there are some new lines. The beginning line is new. Luke says to Rey: “You’ve seen this place.” To which she answers: “Only in dreams.” We know this from The Force Awakens. It’s after that when things get a little bit more interesting. Luke then asks her: “Who are you?”
These lines are then followed by ones we’ve heard before or the kind of thing you’ve come to expect from a Star Wars movie. Luke asks Rey what she sees, which is then followed by some talk of light and darkness. You know, the usual Star Wars fodder. However, then comes Rey’s line: “Kylo failed you. I won’t!” It’s not only the line that interesting, but the lighting is as well.
There’s a moment at the end of The Last Jedi’s very first trailer in which Rey says: “I need someone to show me my place in all this.” This scene was edited in the trailer to make it seem as if she was talking to Kylo, yet the lighting on Rey’s face there matches exactly the lighting on her face in this trailer where she’s clearly talking to Luke.
In my opinion, both these lines are taken from the same scene and Rey is, in fact, talking to Luke, not to Kylo. This kind of puts a damper on our hopes of seeing Rey and Kylo team up in The Last Jedi, but it could still happen. Who knows?
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is heading to UK cinemas on December 14th. Have you bought your tickets yet?
