Star Wars: The Last Jedi is so close, we can almost taste it. And yet, Disney has remained intensely tight-lipped about the upcoming middle saga of the sequel trilogy. All we’ve officially received is the initial teaser trailer and the sizzle reel, with a second full trailer yet to be released. Now that we’re nearly two months until opening night, isn’t it about time we get something new?
The answer to that question is, yes, it is. We dug into the tidbits and news surrounding the second The Last Jedi trailer, including when and where, exactly, it will be released. It could be coming as soon as October!
Here is everything that we’ve heard about the upcoming trailer for The Last Jedi.
Featuring Luke Skywalker
The sequel trilogy is all about the new characters: Rey, Finn, Poe, Kylo Ren, Snoke, and even BB-8. The old characters are there to help us transition the series along. But that shouldn’t overshadow just how much The Last Jedi really is about Luke Skywalker. They spent the entirety of Star Wars: The Force Awakens teasing the return of Luke, only to give him about a minute of screen time right before the credits. Seriously, Luke didn’t even have a single line.
Heading into The Last Jedi, Disney knows the gravity of this character for the franchise. He’s going to be featured prominently in the movie, and the release of the first trailer really bore that out. Luke was seen frequently, even narrating the trailer and delivering his bone-chilling line, “It’s time for the Jedi to end.”
It sounds like the next trailer will again prominently feature Luke over all other characters. We don’t yet know what that means outside of a few moments that we’ll go over soon, but expect that what you see will knock your socks off. Apparently, John Williams came up with an original track specifically for this trailer that was designed to keep fans on the edge of their seat.
