The trailer for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” arrived on Friday, kind of like the new Kendrick Lamar album but with more spaceships and less U2.
The images are pretty vague. Rey training with Luke Skywalker, a few new kinds of ships streaming across a landscape, the smashed helmet of Kylo Ren, an attack on a Rebel base, Finn healing, Kylo pointing his red saber and some very, very old, pre-holocron books, probably about the Jedi.
The shot of the bits of dirt and rock rising into the air where Rey’s hand is resting is potent, but also reminded me of the dirt rising off of Superman’s coffin at the end of “Batman v Superman,” which is a memory nobody needs.
And Luke has possibly had it with the Jedi.
What did you think?
