I am pretty positive thanks to a very reliable source in the form of Mark Hamill’s twitter that on October 9 the next trailer for The Last Jedi will premiere during Monday Night Football. That is literally only ten days from now. Isn’t that awesome? And so, since it’s so close until the next trailer debuts I’m here writing a post on the things I would really love to see in the trailer. Here they are.
A Few More Shots of Finn
Finn was a very essential character in The Force Awakens, in fact, he was just as important as Rey, and so when the teaser trailer came out I was kind of disappointed to see only one shot of him and that only consisted of him asleep in some sort of bacta device. Now I understand why he was so scarcely seen in the trailer. That trailer was supposed to kind of highlight where the characters were the last time we saw them without really showing too much but it’s less than three months until the movie comes out. I think it’s time we see a little more Finn action, for sure.
I Would Love To See Something Else With Leia
This picture is literally the only shot you see that involves Leia from the trailer and I really want to see more of her. Particularly a frontward shot so I can really see her and not just the back of her. Now I’m sure it wouldn’t be that special of a shot but I want just to see more of our wonderful Resistance general.
There Should Definitely Be At Least One Money Shot of Kylo Ren
Kylo Ren was seen only once in the teaser and that happened to be one of my favorite shots of the trailer because I mean, come on, it’s Kylo Ren, with his lightsaber drawn. That’s awesome enough as it is. I would love to see another shot of him maybe swinging his lightsaber at somebody (particularly Rey in a lightsaber duel) because that would be very, very exciting.
Some Looks At The New Additions to the Star Wars Universe
Rose seems to be a major character in The Last Jedi and so it’s only logical that we’ll see at least one clip with her in it in the new trailer. I’m super excited to be introduced to Rose. She’s the first Asian female to have an important part in a Star Wars film and I think she’s going to become one of my favorite characters in the Star Wars universe. I’m really hoping she’s in the trailer.
There’s also the new character, Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, and I’m also hoping her to see her in the next trailer. I don’t know how central her character is going to be to the story but I’m hoping to catch at least a tiny glimpse of her.
And then finally, I Would Love To See Another Shot of Luke
If The Last Jedi is truly named after Luke Skywalker then there should definitely be another shot of the famed Jedi Master. Last time we saw him in a trailer he spoke the ominous words, “It’s time for the Jedi to end” which made every Star Wars fan, including myself, go a little batty for a small while. If he is going to have a little more presence in this next trailer will he say anything else cryptically disturbing or will he just be silent and unhappy looking like he was at the end of The Force Awakens? I’m excited to find out.
Well, those are the things I’m really hoping appear in the trailer. Of course, I want to see a little more with Rey or possibly Poe, or maybe even Chewbacca, but these are the characters I hope get a little more screen time in the next trailer.
