- Trailer for the Star Wars sequel has just been released
- The trailer features protagonist Rey in training
- It also features Mark Hamil’s voice as Luke Skywalker
Heads up, Star Wars fans! Your favorite space epic will again have its film installment and a new trailer is now out to excite you.
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is the second film in the Star Wars sequel trilogy. The film will be released in December this year, the trailer revealed.
The 2-minute-long trailer opened with protagonist Rey, played by actress Daisy Ridley. Rey is portrayed to be training extensively; probably to become a Jedi warrior.
It can be remembered in the last movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, released in December 2015, ended with Rey searching for Luke Skywalker, — of course, reprised by actor Mark Hamil.
But while another Jedi warrior is being trained, a line at the end of the trailer will keep fans hooked up.
Luke was speaking throughout the video, with what seems to be words of encouragement for his padawan. But at the end, there’s a startling line that leaves so much room for excitement and curiosity.
“I only know one truth, it’s time for the Jedi to end,” said Luke.
Will the Jedi race see rebirth no more? There are fans theorizing that either Luke will turn into the dark side. But of course, there’s nothing certain until the movie is released.
Despite this troubling detail about the trailer, what could lighten up the fans’ mood is Princess Leia’s continued role in the sequel.
Carrie Fisher, who died in December last year, has finished filming the second sequel. Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy confirmed Fisher’s role, now called General Organa, will be crucial in the film.
“Carrie is remarkable in the movie,” The Guardian quoted Kennedy.
“The performance she ended up giving, and what Rian wrote, I think you guys are going to find that an amazing tribute to her talent,” she added.
Of course, Kylo Ren, played by actor Adam Driver, is still the main antagonist of the film. It was revealed in the first sequel that Ren, with the real name Ben Solo, is the estranged son of Princess Leia and Han Solo.
