Today seemed to be a day just like any other. But all that changed when we opened our computers this morning and saw the newest storm taking over the internet. Brace yourselves: the trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is here!
We’ve been anxiously awaiting any news on The Last Jedi ever since Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out in 2015. It ended with a dramatic scene of Rey (played by Daisy Ridley) hunting down Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). Before they could do much more than exchange a serious look, the credits rolled.
What was going to happen??
We were left hanging until recently, when Disney revealed that the upcoming Episode VIII would be titled The Last Jedi.
But what does that mean??
Fans immediately started getting their grammar hats on. Is Jedi singular? Does that mean Luke or Rey would die? Or is Jedi plural, and they both will be included in that term? Or are there even more Jedi? Jedis?
So, absolutely none of these questions are answered by the new trailer. But at least we are getting a glimpse at what’s going to go down.
Here’s What Happens
The trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens with Luke saying, “Breathe. Just breathe.” From there, it’s clear that he’s training Rey. The ending line was even more dramatic. Once again, Luke speaks, saying, “I only know one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end.”
Watch the trailer here:
It’s clear that the next Star Wars film is clearly going to be loaded with intense space fight scenes and tons of action. Star Wars: The Last Jedi will hit theaters on December 15, 2017. After that, we’ve got a Han Solo anthology film to look forward to in 2018.
