Star Wars fans have been waiting patiently for the series’ next chapter since Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theaters back in December of 2015. While Rogue One: A Star Wars Story offered fans a glimpse into an untold story, the details on Star Wars: The Last Jedi have been hard to come by.
The first trailer was dropped at the Star Wars Celebration back in April, and now we’ve been given our second piece of the puzzle as we head toward the December 2017 release of Episode VIII. Disney unveiled a new behind-the-scenes video for The Last Jedi at D23, with plenty of reveals and Easter eggs for fans.
Here are the notable moments we noticed in the three-minute video.
1. Rey hands Luke his lightsaber
In a moment that all Star Wars fans have to be anticipating, we briefly see Luke Skywalker holding his very first lightsaber while standing with Rey. This is essentially picking up right where The Force Awakens left off. As Rey holds the relic out to Luke, her eyes beg him to take it and return with her to the Resistance.
We don’t yet know what Luke’s intentions are, but bits from the original trailer and the behind-the-scenes video lead us to believe that the blue lightsaber originally built by Anakin Skywalker ends up back in Rey’s hands. Does Luke still have the green lightsaber he built prior to Star Wars: Return of the Jedi or does he simply not require a weapon anymore?
