Last night the second trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi dropped. It dropped with only a few months before the film debuts in December and having watched it several times and had some time to think about it. Here are some of my thoughts…
1.) I mentioned after watching the first trailer that the film has an “Empire” feel. This one really cements that Granted that’s to be expected with the training of Rey, the fight with AT-AT 2.0 (I know they have a name but can’t think of it off the top of the head) and what appears to be Kylo sort of asking Rey to join him ala Vader to Luke at end of Empire.
2.) Showing Finn in battle with Phasma is stark contrast to the first trailer which had him in a stasis pod which is good.
3.) I still don’t know what to think about Luke. I’m less concerned with how they’ll treat Luke after this trailer but there is still that concern. I guess part of it is coming in with the “Legends” stories still in my head of how they treated Luke post Return of the Jedi and how it appears he’s treated in the Disneymovieverse.
4). There were a few shots that looked like Rey had a white lightsaber…which I think would be good because that means she built her own lightsaber. I could be wrong and she still has Anakin/Luke’s old blue lightsaber and the lighting was such to make the blade color seem white in some shots. If she is to become a Jedi then she should build her own lightsaber. But then I guess the argument is to be made in the film is she going to be a Jedi or is the order done now.
Overall this trailer sold me more on the film than the first trailer. I’m still a little wary but we’ll see come December how things go.
