Geekery: ‘The Last Jedi’ Gets Dark in Latest Trailer

The dark side is strong with this one…

It’s only 45 seconds long, but it has a lot to say.

There are some familiar scenes here, but the parts that are new are interesting. Luke in black. New space combat with plenty of TIEs and the Falcon, a broader look at the battle over the planet with the red sands, and a brief shot of what looks like Snoke’s throne room.

And that last line: “This is not going to go the way you think.” Followed by Rey raising her lightsaber in triumph… ? Or is that something else? The editors behind the trailers for this movie have done a cunning job of showing without telling, and making audiences question exactly what’s going on here.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters on December 15th.


Any theories?

  • Yawn. The Star Wars hype machine is getting stale.

    • For me it’s doing quite the opposite. I do get excited a lot by these trailers. They make me ask lots of questions.

      After the Force Awakens SW bores me. I doubt there will be anything surprising in this film

      • Paul Mattingley

        Yep, I am exactly the same. I won’t bother with the cinema to see it.

  • Evil Otto

    This is not going to go the way you think!

  • Chet Atkinson

    Kylo Ren throwing another strop. Lot of misdirection to try and trick you into thinking Mary Sue will be a baddie

    • Paul Mattingley

      Should have let George Lucks write the story and get others as screenwriters and a director. At least we may have got original stories rather than remakes of the original trilogy.

  • Sleeplessknight

    After my experience with Rogue One and it’s trailer, is that line (or any of those scenes for that matter) even going to be in the movie?

    Dark up until you get to that Furby.
