A television spot for Star Wars: The Last Jedi just revealed several cool new angles to consider in the upcoming eighth installment of the sci-fi series. The movie will see the heroes of Star Wars: The Force Awakens “join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.”
Watch it below.
Three key moments:
Luke and the Falcon
We’ve known, of course, that Mark Hamill reprises his role as Luke Skywalker, though we’ve only seen him in exile. Now we get a look at him right away on board the Millennium Falcon, presumably for the first time in years.
Snoke’s throne room
‘Darkness rises … and light to meet it.” This just might be the theme of the movie. In The Force Awakens, we saw how the New Order threatens to swamp the galaxy with its evil ways, with Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) playing a key role. The expansive throne room of Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) is revealed for the first time, as he utters a very memorable declaration of intent. A formidable foe indeed!
Rey raising her lightsaber to Luke
We’ve suspected that Rey (Daisy Ridley) will be training with Luke, but now we get a glimpse of her raising her lightsaber against Luke. In his own training with Yoda on Dagobah, seen in The Empire Strikes Back, Luke faced many different scenarios, so this could just be another training scenario, but, truthfully, Rey and Luke both look far too invested in the scene for it to be simple “training.”
We also get glimpses of Finn (John Boyega) in action — twice! — along with Poe (Oscar Isaac) and the beloved Leia (Carrie Fisher). Watch the new spot above.
