“When I saw you I saw raw, untamed power and beyond that… something truly special,” is how the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi begins. The pulse-pounding music and pace let us know we’re in for an epic, and the mystery and excitement begins to build from the first note. It’s two-and-a-half minutes of supreme melodrama — in the best way possible. The trailer hints at so much, including Kylo Ren’s return to the dark side, Rey’s search for her identity and Luke Skywalker’s reconsidering the past — and what he missed when he first encountered evil strength. Some choice lines follow below the trailer. And the new poster dropped too, check it out below also.
- “I’ve seen this raw strength before. It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now.”
- “Kill it. That’s the only way to become what you’re meant to be.”
- “We are the spark that light the fire that’ll burn the the First Order down.”
