Its only October, a little more than two months away from The Last Jedi’s release, and Lucasfilm is already ramping up the promo.The latest trailer for the film has just been released and its genuinely spectacular. This is the only trailer for the film released so far since the first one debuted during Star Wars Celebration in Orlando last April.
Last Month, star Mark Hamill teased about the released of the trailer after tweeting “Watch Monday Night Football on Monday October 9th – for no reason in particular.” The actor later deleted the post and backtracked that Disney instead “will announce when they are ready.”
Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Studios also release the film’s latest theatrical poster which features General Leia Organa front and center, surrounded by the entire cast and a hooded Skywalker at the top. Its a more crowded one-sheet when compared to first one which focused only on Rey, Luke and Kylo but continues the red color scheme also seen in the trailers.
The second film in the Star Wars trilogy, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” picks up where “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” left off, where we saw Rey (Daisy Ridley) meeting long lost Jedi Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill). There is a major revelation in the trailer, one that seem to suggest potentially shocking Rey and Kylo Ren alliance. “I need someone to show me my place in all this,” Rey says to Kylo Ren as the latter offers her his hand. Nerdtastic mind-blown!
The Last Jedi will see the return of Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, John Boyega, and Oscar Isaac, and Carrie Fisher in her last role. Joining the cast this time around are Laura Dern, Benicio del Toro and Kelly Marie Tran. It is the second film in the Star Wars sequel trilogy after 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Produced by Lucasfilm and continues the events established in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Star Wars: The Last Jedi will storm theaters December 15th, 2017.
