I can’t believe it but it literally is only a couple of days until all of my questions for The Last Jedi will finally be answered. Like who are Rey’s parents? Why did Kylo Ren turn to the dark side? Why does Luke say, “It’s time for the Jedi to end?” What is going to happen in this film that is so shocking? All of these questions have been nagging at me and I’m stunned that they will be answered in two days. It really is an incredible thought.
So here’s the teaser for today.
Yes, it is the actual teaser for The Last Jedi. I decided to put it up because the movie is coming out in two days and what better to celebrate this day than with the teaser we saw back in April of this year.
I remember when I saw this teaser for the first time. I was blown away like millions of other fans. Now December 15th is right around the corner and this teaser feels ancient yet relevant at the same time. I can’t wait to see this next chapter in the Star Wars saga.
And the Character Today Is…
Kylo Ren! In The Force Awakens Kylo Ren was a Darth Vader-wannabe. He hid behind his mask to make himself appear more menacing because he wasn’t confident in himself. He also used the mask to try to conceal the light within him even though it was there all of the time. When he murdered his father, Han Solo, it seemed like he had truly turned to the dark side but according to these trailers and tv spots it seems like he’s more confused about his place between these two sides of the Force than ever before and I love it.
In the two previous trilogies the stories were focused solely on the heroes of the movies but in this trilogy Kylo Ren’s story is just as important as Rey’s. That’s exciting because from a storyteller’s point of view you have to bring something new to the table and that’s difficult when it comes to Star Wars. Kylo Ren might be a villain in this film (or is he?) but his story isn’t being reduced because of that. In this next film I feel that we’ll know more about him than in the previous movie and I can’t wait to see what happens.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a wonderful day. May the Force Be With You.
