In Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past. "It does now." The parallels between Rey and Kylo Ren are clearly established, with both Snoke and Luke using similar verbiage to describe their respective pupils, but in looking back at Kylo Ren's descent to the dark side, the writing on the wall becomes ever more apparent. He is seen apparently torturing her in the trailer. The instant star status was something that another actress who got her start with the franchise, the late Carrie Fisher, knew all too well. Or we might be seeing Rey give in to the Dark Side and follow Kylo's path.
RelishMix reports that YouTube views for The Last Jedi are at 24M-plus over past two days and that they're outpacing 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens over same period with 21.8M, Spider-Man Homecoming at 17.5M and Jurassic World's 13.1M. The trailer features familiar faces like Rey, Leia Organa and even Luke Skywalker himself.
I'm sorry, the old Kylo Ren can't come into the light right now, oh why? Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in USA theaters on December 15, 2017. He is no longer the strong, confident Luke we had last seen onscreen in Return of the Jedi.
The trailer also shows a anxious Leia, Finn (John Boyega) and Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) toe to toe, Poe (Oscar Isaac) with words of encouragement for the Resistance and two new creatures including the glass fox and the Porg, which is seen hanging out with Chewbacca.
