Disney and Lucasfilm have officially released the first ever teaser trailer for the much awaited Christmas 2017 movie franchise installment, "Star wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi" - or simply just referred to as "Star Wars: The Last Jedi."
The first "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" trailer was showcased at the annual Star Wars Celebration day last Friday. It showed some of the most awaited moments in the film including Luke (Mark Hamill) and Rey's (Daisy Ridley) interaction and Finn's (John Boyega) fate after receiving his injuries in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."
Aside from those characters, Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) was also featured in the "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" trailer. He was seen running to his fighter ship but was caught in an explosion right about as he was getting near it.
Massive battles have also been featured in the "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" trailer. A couple of them involved space fight between X-Wings and TIE Fighters, and the land-based fight that seemingly hints the coming of what looks like First Order Walkers, as noted on The Verge.
Meanwhile, the moment many fans have been waiting for has finally come in "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" trailer. After the major cliffhanger in his brief appearance in "The Force Awakens," Luke Skywalker has finally spoken. On the teaser, he mentioned that it is "time for the Jedi to end."
According to CBR's interpretation of Luke's line in the teaser trailer, it would seem like the jedi has finally given up hope, particularly the light and the fight against the dark side. This seemingly explains why he ran away from everyone else into self-imposed exile. It was also suggested that the reason why he did that was because he wanted to find the first Jedi temple.
"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is scheduled to screen in theaters on Dec. 15, 2017.
