The premiere of a haunting and dark trailer has triggered the countdown to ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’, the eighth movie in the galactic saga that will hit theaters on December 15. The Star Wars Celebration convention, held in Orlando, Florida, was the stage chosen to unveil the first images of the continuation of ‘Star Wars: The Awakening of the Force’ (2015) The director of the film Rian Johnson, and actors like Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill and John Boyega.
With a tone much more given to the mystery than the seventh episode and that will awaken comparisons with ‘Star Wars – The Empire Strikes Back’ (1980), the preview shows Rey (Ridley) training to the limit of his forces next to an experienced and very serious Luke Skywalker (Hamill).
“What do you see?” Asks Skywalker in a moment, to which his young apprentice replies, “Light, darkness, balance.” “It’s much bigger,” Skywalker says of a sequence in which King is seen wielding his laser sword at the edge of a cliff.
The trailer also featured striking chases and combat scenes in which the Millennium Falcon stood out once again.
“I only know one truth: it’s the time of the end of the Jedi,” concludes Luke Skywalker with a very sinister scent to close a clip, which also features Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), Finn Boyega) and Leia, in which it was the last interpretation of Carrie Fisher before passing away in December to the 60 years.
The two thousand people who packed up the Galaxy stage of Star Wars Celebration burst out of joy to see the trailer in such a way that Rian Johnson decided to exhibit it a second time.
The event also served to know a poster of the feature film in red and black colors with the faces of Luke Skywalker and Kylo Ren united and separated by the light that gives off the lightsaber of Rey.
