Hey there, folks! It’s been a while, but I’m back and on the cutting edge!
I’ll be doing a scene by scene breakdown of the new The Last Jedi trailer that premiered during the Monday Night Football game!
Well, let’s get into it!
First shot: Kylo Ren watching the First Order war machine being constructed. He doesn’t have his long jacket on here. I believe that’s a first for him.
Snoke voiceover. Seems like he’s talking to Kylo Ren…or is he?
We next see the new AT-ATs. They’re called AT-ACTs. They look fairly savage. Kylo’s ship is flying above them.
Next, a figure in black (presumably Kylo) leading some troopers into what I’m assuming is some sort of volcanic terrain.
We next see Kylo’s helmet without a visor. He picks up his lightsaber as Snoke finishes saying “Something…truly special”.
Cut to Rey igniting Anakin’s saber. We then see Luke’s island and then Rey handing him Anakin’s saber. Luke’s fully exposed robotic hand is exposed! And man…does it look beat to hell.
Rey walking through mist towards a tree. Then apparently inside that tree (sound familiar?). This is where the scrolls are that we saw in the teaser.
Rey says she needs help now that this “thing” has awakened inside of her. She practices with the saber and does the whole “levitating pebbles and breaking the ground” thing. Luke looks terrified. Says he’s only seen that “raw strength only once before…and it didn’t scare me enough then.” As we see a ruined building and a robotic hand popping out of the debris. Then we see Artoo and (presumably) Luke staring at a burning building. Probably his academy.
“…it does now.” This is accompanied with a look of abject fear.
Kylo destroys his helmet while talking about destroying the past and how it’s the only way to become what you’re meant to be. This is cut with footage of him in a starship just wrecking shit. It gives the impression that he is going to kill Leia. He’s got some sort of metallic patch over the scars on his face. He places his thumb over the trigger. Leia looks worried.
Falcon being chased through what I believe to be the same volcanic planet from earlier. Chewie yells. A porg yells.
Poe gives an inspirational bit about how they’re the spark to bring the First Order down.
CUT TO PHASMA 😀 😀 😀 😀
She’s got a Force Pike. Cut to Finn (decked out in a uniform) with the same type of riot baton that TR-8R had in TFA. THEY GONNA FIGHT! THEY GONNA FIGHT!
(As an aside, I read the Phasma book and she is savage of HELL)
A few random shots of cool shit.
Luke: “This is not going to go how you think!” as he’s drenched in the rain.
A lot more cool shit.
Snoke: “FULFIL…YOUR…DESTINY” as we see him and Rey in what appears to be excruciating pain at his hands!
Cut to black.
Rey: “I need someone…to show me my place in all this.”
Cut to KYLO REN OFFERING HIS HAND TO HER! WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTT!
Yo, what the hell! What a trailer! Do you believe all that crazy shit!
…cause I don’t.
I think it was some clever editing to elicit the exact emotions I provided. I don’t think a lot of what they showed is going to come to pass. At least, not like we think it will.
Let me know your thoughts, folks!
