It may be less than a month to go until the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but Lucasfilm keeps spinning out those trailers. Today’s 30-second clip has much of what’s been seen already, apart from a close up of Poe Dameron in an X-Wing surrounded by fire. Nevertheless, there’s an extended shot and dialogue of Rey being trained by Luke on Ahch-To in the ways of the Force and it’s not long before things start to get very dangerous. Luke says: “Breathe. Now reach out. What do you see?”
A focused Rey, with her eyes closed, says: “Light. Darkness. And something else. It’s calling me. Luke quickly warns: “Resist Rey! REY!” Interestingly the trailer also included the text: “Choose your path.” What could this something else be? Well there’s a shot of Snoke concentrating with his eyes closed, so could he be trying to tempt Rey to the Dark Side or even this “something else”?
Star Wars theorist Mike Zeroh said: “The very end of Act 1…will tell some shocking revelations of Luke Skywalker and the Force.
“This absolutely has to do with the books that are hidden inside of the [Force] tree, as we saw in the teaser trailer when Luke Skywalker said, ‘It’s time for the Jedi to end.’”
