The first trailer for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is in session!
Here are 3 main questions we have after seeing the preview:
1. What has Rey been doing all this time?
In the previous installment of the famed space saga, we see Rey (Daisy Ridley) finally catch up with bro Star Wars himself, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), on a mountainous enclave. In the teaser, it looks like she has been there quite some time based on the speed she wields her lightsaber – at no one in particular. It appears as if Rey is partaking in Jedi lessons, taught by Luke…
2. What will happen to the Jedi?
…but how can that be? In the teaser, Luke specifically calls on a truth many long-time fans have dreaded. He believes the Jedi order must cease. So what the heck is Rey doing? Where will Luke go if the Jedi has ended? What about Kylo Ren (Adam Driver)? We know Luke schooled his nephew in the ancient ways. Is the Force presenting something new? Or is this a joke…
3. Why does Kylo Ren still have a light saber in his hand?
…because K-boy is still a factor. Apparently, the powers that be insist on Kylo Ren as an antagonist of some sort. Okay, we will ride with it. However, we need to know how the reluctant Sith-like bad-boy is back into action. When we last saw Ky, he was injured and flunking all his exams. Has he been further educated? Will he continue his secret liaisons with the Lightside of the Force? Can Kylo Ren be trusted to carry out the First Order’s agenda despite Rey dismissing him on the first day of classes?
A few questions lead to a greater number of curiosities. Soon enough, we will learn the answers.
Don’t forget to check out the trailer below to see that Finn (John Boyega) , Poe (Oscar Issac), BB-8, and R2-D2 will return to the fold as well.
‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ is scheduled to premiere in theaters on December 15, 2017.
Until then, may the Force be with you.
