We’re just about a month and a half away from the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. As we get closer and closer, the TV spots will begin to become more prominent. And that push begins today with a 45 second clip that was published by Disney.
Entitled ‘Awake’, the clip is largely comprised of the footage we saw within the Monday Night Football trailer on October 9th. However, there are few snippets of additional scenes thrown in for good measure.
Most notably – and scram if your sensitive toward minor spoilers – but we get to see Luke’s reintroduction to the Millennium Falcon. It was obvious this would happen within The Last Jedi. Rey and Chewbacca flew the ship to Luke’s home of Ahch-To, after all. But it’s a big moment nonetheless.
You can see with just a three second glimpse that the moment is emotional to Skywalker. Is it foreboding due to being pulled back into this dilemma of Light side and Dark side? Is it walking into the ship after knowing that Han has died? Or is it just awe as Luke probably never expected to see the Falcon again? We’ll have to wait six more weeks to find out for sure.
Outside of Luke reuniting with Solo’s former ship, we also get a quick glimpse of Finn piloting an X-Wing during the Battle of Crait. We get a much more broad look at Snoke’s throne room. And we even get a new quote from the Supreme Leader, as he almost excitedly states that “Darkness rises… and light to meet it.”
Finally, we appear to get another glimpse of either Luke and Rey’s upcoming battle with Kylo, or a flashback to the events of Ben’s betrayal of Luke. The trailer ends with Rey standing over Luke while Rey has his blue lightsaber in hand. Luke then gruffly belts the now infamous “This is not going to go the way you think” line.
Those are likely just clever, misleading cuts by the trailer to throw us off of who Luke is speaking to and the context of the conversation. But I suppose we’ll all find out together when Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15th.
