Fans have been not-so-patiently waiting for Star Wars: The Last Jedi to finally unveil its first trailer. Given that Star Wars: The Force Awakens released its first teaser a full year before its release, it’s safe to say that it’s been a long time coming for Episode VIII.
A panel for the film debuted an exciting new trailer at long last, and let’s just say it’s everything you possibly could have hoped for. So what exactly did it tell us? The answer: a lot more than you might think. Here’s what we saw.
1. Rey in peril
The teaser opens up on Rey, panting and sweaty, and clearly looking like she’s under duress. Recent rumors from the set claimed that a fight scene between Luke and the Knights of Ren was filmed at Skellig Michael, Ireland, the island where The Last Jedi is said to open. Perhaps this is Rey recovering from that fight, and if not that, then it could simply be her in the midst of training with Luke.
