I only know one truth... it's time for the Jedi... to end

This looks great! I'm leaning back and forth how much info I want on the movie, but in the end, I probably won't be able to resist watching all the trailers :)

This is a great trailer. It teases plot points without giving anything away.

And plus it's new Star Wars!!!

I agree! I'm excited about Star Wars again! I imagine someday I'll get burnt out (I'm not anticipating being hyped for the Han Solo movie), but right now GIVE ME MORE STAR WARS

Yep, this trailer was really cool and I am excited for The Last Jedi even more now. If Disney keeps going at this pace and with the movies as good as they have been I think I'll be watching them excitedly for quite some time.

Adam, that may be true about the Han Solo movie, I'll hold judgment until a trailer at least.

But for now I AM ONE WITH THE HYPE AND THE HYPE IS WITH ME

Episode One - More About The Force Awakens

Firstly I want to link to our Force Awakens trailer discussion. Fun to read that two years later knowing what we know now. It's nice to have these discussions easy to find. I know i'll get a kick out of reading them YEARS later. You know, like now only much older...

http://cheerfulghost.com/jdodson/posts/2479/star-wars-vii-the-force-awakens-trailer-2-launches

Firstly I want to step back a bit and say I think the Force Awakens is getting a but too much negativity amongst some fans. The fact that it was made as quickly and was as good and made as many people happy and again, was good is a miracle. I think the Movies With Mikey review sums it up well even though Mikey does tend to get a bit gushy the end of his reviews. Regardless, Force Awakens was a movie I still stand by as "liquid joy" and one of the more magical theater going experiences i've had lately. Until I saw Arrival then that topped it, but Force Awakens was superb and as a fan very satisfying.

I could get into the biggest criticisms of it, but I won't because we've talked about that before. All that to say, my guess is Last Jedi will be incredible and in many ways better than the Force Awakens because the Force Awakens built up so much The Last Jedi can now pay off and kick the world building and incredible parts of Star Wars up 10 notches. I think because of this there will be some new fan share on the Force Awakens because the Internet loves picking apart things and jumping on bandwagons. Or not. But we'll see.

TLDR; Force Awakens is a great movie that builds up an incredible world the Last Jedi can play in so well it will be a really great film.

Episode II - Attack Of the Trailer Speculation

I think you can take Luke wanting the Jedi to end in a couple ways. Both are interesting and i'm not entire sure which it will be.

1. Luke actually wants to rid the galaxy of anyone with force ability. Let's face it, the Jedi are ultra powerful and it seems from the films having them around causes a huge amount of problems. Luke might believe that having such ultra powerful people might be too much for the galaxy and he wants to stop anyone from getting that power and using it for bad. This is a parallel between what Vader did, which was for entirely different reasons but the same kind of action. It would be an interesting juxtaposition and since, my guess, Luke is the most powerful person in the galaxy and seemingly for good but not it could create an interesting story. Further speculation on this line is that Luke might train Rey to help him take out the First Order and the Knights of Ren something she might like but Luke might take it too far for her or be too extreme?

2. Luke is speaking more metaphorically and he wants there to be less "evil extreme" Jedi and "good to the point of being dumb" Jedi. He thinks being Grey is actually better and will try and sway Kylo to the middle. I've only heard about the Grey path recently and it's an interesting concept outlined on Wookipedia below.

3. Something else entirely.

"fan share" => "fan shade"

I'm thinking it'll be something along the second scenario, with Luke going Gray (or maybe going clear? Does he become a Scientologiat?), but I'm hoping for something more out of left field. I'm still hoping Luke turns out to be Smoke lol. The first scene in the trailer, Rey falls and looks upset. Sure, this is probably part of a training montage, but maybe it's Luke throwing Rey out of his house/cace/dwelling. Or maybe Luke isn't Snoke, but Rey ends up turning evil.

Looking at the poster for the movie (http://www.gameinformer.com/cfs-filesystemfile.ashx/__key/CommunityServer-Components-SiteFiles/imagefeed-featured-lucasfilm-StarWars-celebration2017-thelastjedi/lastjediposter1.jpg), Rey's lightsaber turns from blue to red, and it's separating Luke and Kylo. She could turn to the dark side and keep Luke and Kylo apart (Kylo's helmet is broken in the trailer, maybe he's trying to turn to the light side in this one?)

I love speculating :)

Luke: Kylo, your problem is you have too many Thetans. We can take care of that for you, all you need to do is just pay 4 easy installments of $59.95...

I'm throwing my bet behind a more Gray Jedi / balanced approach to the force. I love how the Star Wars trailers (at least for the main series) have been so good about making the movies look great without giving away the plot too much. So many trailers show you too much and then you already know what's going to happen by the time you see the movie.

And man, I've watched this trailer like 12 times and I still get goosebumps when the red Star Wars logo shows up. And that end piece of music! John Williams is the man.

I actually thought that was Darth Vaders burned helmet but it could be Kylo's which does make more sense.

I think this trailer is one of the best trailers i've seen. Also, I like Luke as a Yoga Teacher. "Breeeeaaathe!"

There's no way they don't put threepio in it. Anthony Daniels has been in nearly every single Star Wars property and he's still kicking.


If Anthony Daniels is alive in 20 years when Star Wars Episode 18 comes out and takes place 500 years in the future from Episode 8, Threepio will probably still be there.
