Top 5 Questions from the New Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer
With the release of the new Star Wars The Last Jedi trailer and poster, it definitely left a lot of Star Wars fans with more questions rather than answers and that’s a good thing. The child in me though wants to know all these things right away. So here are my Top 5 Questions from the New Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer.
I may thread into spoilers without knowing it so I’m throwing a cautionary Spoiler Alert.
1. Is Luke Skywalker Turning into the Dark Side?
There are a ton of rumors and speculations surrounding the heel turn of Mark Hamill’s character Luke Skywalker for the second film. Some are founded while others unfounded. But its certainly obvious that he’s starting to show fear, a trait that the Sith thrive in and the Jedi renounce. Seeing him in several scenes showing how scared he is of Rey’s burgeoning powers tells a lot.
2. Why is Finn back with the First Order (Bonus: Finn vs Captain Phasma)
Based on past interviews and panels, a newly recovered Finn is going on a mission for the Resistance. What could possibly send Finn (John Boyega) back to the place that scares him the most. More than that, what makes it such an important mission that he even goes up against a superiorly trained Captain Phasma?
It’s interesting to note that Finn is also using a weapon similar to TR-8R aka FN-2199…
3. Will Kylo Ren Kill General Leia?
In one of the tensest moments from the new trailer, we get to see Kylo Ren seemingly ready to send out a missile from his cool new TIE Fighter. The thing is, its implied in the trailer that the ship also has his mother, General Leia onboard.
4. Will Rey join the Dark Side?
It’s pretty obvious that this would THIS trilogy’s ‘Empire’ but with so many rumors and very little truths, its hard to discern which of the two heroes in the film would fall/ join the dark side. I’m sure that this would the film that Rey finally meets Supreme Leader Snoke. I’m sure that this is where we see a ‘damaged’ Luke…
The trailer ends with Rey talking about finding her place in all this then getting a scene with Kylo Ren extending his hand towards what we assume is Rey. Will she join the Dark Side?
5. What are the Porgs?
Goddamn these creatures! They are adorable!
What are Porgs? Where do they come from? Will we see them constantly now? Are there like any new cool things they can do or are they this movie’s new “ewoks”?
Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens December 12 and will be distributed locally by Walt Disney Studios Philippines thru Columbia Pictures
