This was released about half a day ago, so I imagine half the world has already seen it, but I always get excited by the release of a new Star Wars trailer and I always get the urge to write a short post about it.😊 Anyway, here it is, the first trailer for this year’s Star Wars film, The Last Jedi.
The opening shot is quite clever: you think you are looking at stars, when in fact you are looking at light reflecting on rocky ground. But apart from that shot, I surprisingly didn’t find anything particularly interesting about this trailer. It shows the Millennium Falcon being chased by TIE fighters (again). It also shows Poe Dameron losing his X-wing (again). I hope the latter isn’t turning into some kind of silly running gag. And then there’s the bookshelf… I thought the Star Wars universe was a paperless one, but apparently not. On the bright side, you at least get to see more of Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. Thinking about it, he probably gets more screen time in this trailer than he got in the entire The Force Awakens! OK, I know. Now I’m just being silly.😁
Despite my lack of enthusiasm for this trailer, I’m still looking forward to seeing The Last Jedi. Luke Skywalker is probably my favourite movie character of all time, so it will be great to see him shine, for perhaps one final time. And of course, Daisy Ridley is doing a great job as Rey and it will interesting to see how Rey’s story progresses as well.
Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
