A new Star Wars: The Last Jedi spot has premiered that shows Rey wielding Kylo Ren’s signature lightsaber.
Released via the official Star Wars Instagram page, the video focuses on many of the same images seen in other commercials. But with just VIII (get it?) days remaining before the film is released in theaters, we’re now seeing something new.
At the end of the trailer, we hear what sounds like Supreme Leader Snoke telling someone to “fulfill your destiny.” At the same time, we see Rey take control of Kylo Ren’s lightsaber as she prepares to do battle against the Elite Praetorian Guard. Is Rey simply protecting herself, or will she be seduced by the Dark Side of the Force over the course of the film?
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters December 15 and stars Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke, Domhnall Gleeson as General Hux, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Benicio Del Toro as ‘DJ’, Kelly Marie Tran as Rose Tico, Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, and the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa.
