Lucasfilm launched the second trailer for Star Wars: The Final Jedi on Monday night. It exhibits that—like each Star Wars film—the following version will probably be stuffed with area battles, lightsaber duels, and campy dialog.
The trailer makes it clear that Rey would be the central character of the ppcoming film, set to launch December 15 with tickets widely available now. Rey’s coaching by Luke Skywalker and maturation as a Jedi seem to be main themes.
For anybody coming into the Star Wars universe for the primary time with this newest trilogy (wait, why?), the brand new trailer hints at apparent parallels to The Empire Strikes Again. In Empire, Luke ignores Yoda’s warnings that his coaching is not full and rushes off to avoid wasting his buddies, resulting in his hand being chopped off by Darth Vader.
“I’ve seen this uncooked power solely as soon as earlier than,” Luke Skywalker says within the new footage. “It did not scare me sufficient then. It does now… This isn’t going to go the best way you suppose.”
The trailer additionally hints that Kylo Ren—who embraced the darkish aspect of the Power and killed his father [spoilers] in Episode VII—tries to recruit Rey to the darkish aspect.
“I would like somebody to point out me my place in all this,” Rey says close to the tip of the trailer. The brand new teaser then cuts to a shot of Ren holding out his black-gloved hand.
Whereas the trailer offers a whole lot of hints in regards to the plot and main themes of Final Jedi, a lot of the preliminary Twitter chatter has been about this new Chewbacca sidekick:

The brand new creature is seemingly a Porg, which in line with a fan wiki is “a sea hen species native to the planet Ahch-To, the place Jedi Grasp Luke Skywalker made his exile within the years following the Battle of Endor.” It stays to be seen if the Porg will probably be beloved by followers or—probably extra possible—if the creature will probably be the brand new Jar Jar Binks.
