Disney revealed a short teaser of "Star Wars - Episode 8: The Last Jedi" featuring Rey (Daisy Ridley). Although there were only a few people that have seen the unexpected trailer, Slash Film's Peter Sciretta was there at the event and gave and shared to his followers on Twitter what he saw.
"Just saw a short glimpse of 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' footage in a sizzle reel," he tweeted. Here, Rey was holding a lightsaber, caught a light and moved the rocks. Even though this just a very short clip of "Star Wars - Episode 8: The Last Jedi," this still gives a lot to expect.
According to Daily Express, the short teaser hints Rey's Jedi training in "Star Wars - Episode 8: The Last Jedi" now begins. Some say that she is now under the supervision of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) on his planet of Ahch-To.
Rey's moving of rocks in "Star Wars - Episode 8: The Last Jedi" is said to be adapted from the scene in "Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back." Here, Luke did what she has done in the trailer under the training of Yoda (Frank Oz).
