Star Wars The Last Jedi

There’s more training to be glimpsed as Daisy Ridley swings about the lightsaber prop on this cliffside. This shot appears to be just before that helicopter takes off and gets that wide shot of her doing the same thing in the teaser trailer. Luke doesn’t seem to be anywhere in sight. Is she training by herself here? Is there a chance Luke declines training her at all and she sticks around just to do some training of her own, hoping that he’ll come around?

Whatever Rey is training for, it appears she’s going to take on multiple foes at some point, at least if this shot of rehearsal is any indication. Three people attack her in this shot, and she has her lightsaber in her hand. Does the fact that those three people don’t have lightsaber props in their hand indicate that those enemies won’t? Which enemies would be so bold as to take on someone with a lightsaber? One guess could be the Knights of Ren, another could be…

These new Stormtroopers. Remember that Stormtrooper who was so bold as to take on Finn while he was wielding a lightsaber? Perhaps he didn’t have the only kind of weapon that can take on the Jedi weapon. Those new weapons look pretty deadly, and if they can be electrified like that baton from The Force Awakens, then they could be a problem.

Daisy Ridley is also here seen doing some staff training. Are those boxes meant to stand in for someone or something? It looks like they’ve been laid into by the staff a few times at least, but whether that’s just for general training or for a specific scene remains to be determined.

Whatever Rey is training for, it appears that there’s a call to action on Ahch-To at some point as Rey races across the surface with her lightsaber in hand. What or who is she running after? Is this merely training instituted by Luke Skywalker like some kind of Rocky montage? Or did he give her some task to accomplish?

Speaking of Luke, here’s the Jedi master himself standing on a cliff. That’s a bounce card below him, meant to capture and deflect more light upon the subject in front of the camera, so it’s not part of the set. Notice how Luke is wearing darker robes in this sequence, not the lighter cloak he was wearing at the end of The Force Awakens. He also appears to have a satchel with him. Could this be as he prepares to leave Ahch-To? If you look among the crew, you can see Rey, and she doesn’t appear to be ready to go anywhere, so maybe they’re not leaving just yet. Maybe Luke is just going for a walk to feed some of the Porgs like a cute old man would.

However, at some point, we wonder if Luke and Rey are going to fight Kylo Ren together. Because in this behind the scenes training shot, there are two people attacking Adam Driver with his training lightsaber. Again, these stuntmen don’t have prop lightsabers, but if they’re just stand-ins helping him learn choreography, then they wouldn’t need them.

If there is a fight between Kylo Ren, Rey and Luke, I don’t think we’ve seen where that fight happens until now. Here’s a shot of a planet that appears to be covered in now. It’s a goofy shot that has Rey and Finn dancing between takes, but notice that Rey is wearing something completely different from what we’ve seen her in before. That makes me think it’s towards the end of the movie, perhaps even after the climactic battle has taken place.

What makes me think that is that Leia appears to be on that same location in this shot. Could this be just before she has a reunion with her brother Luke? We know there has to be a scene where the Skywalker twins are reunited, and this could be it. The look on her face is one that indicates she could be gazing upon her brother from a distance before he notices her.

As we’ve noted before though, this shot at the end of the sizzle reel is the big one. It appears to be from a monitor, but Rey has her lightsaber ignited with a hooded cloak. Where does this scene take place? Who is she preparing to face off against? There are so many more questions that we have, and we can’t wait to see the next trailer, whenever it arrives.

Star Wars The Last Jedi

It’s a wrap! That’s all for the trailer breakdown. Feel free to speculate and let everyone know what you think about all this new footage in the comments.
