The final trailer for Star Wars The Last Jedi is here and… yeah. I think we just found our Empire Strikes Back of the series.
There’s a ton to unpack in this trailer, and… I’m going to leave that up to you if you wish to do so. Watch and then meet me below.
Yes, I could go into this thing shot-by-shot, but I also know the vast majority of the world isn’t as geeky about Star Wars as I am. I will say though, it’s clear Rian Johnson has gone for something that feels a lot like Empire Strikes Back, the entry most people consider the best Star Wars film. Clearly, there are going to be some tough choices for a lot of the characters, and that only makes sense. There is one fairly obvious misdirect in here, though. (Lighting on their faces gives it away Rey and Kylo are not in the same location as is implied)
In short, I can’t wait for Dec. 15. Come on Star Wars, don’t let me down.
