This morning was the amazing Star Wars Celebration panel for The Last Jedi. We didn’t learn much new information (more on what we did learn in a bit), but the big news that everyone was waiting for is, of course, the first teaser trailer for the film. Check it out right now:
“It’s time for the Jedi to end.”
We knew Luke was broken apart by Kylo Ren’s betrayal and the destruction of his school. But what we didn’t know is that Luke has been searching for a new truth during his entire disappearance. The trailer heavily focuses on “balance,” and that leads us to believe that Luke is searching for something new. Perhaps he will finally fulfill his role as The Chosen One by teaching Rey how to bring balance to the universe.
In addition, we saw a breathtakingly beautiful teaser poster for the film:
We also learned of a new character in the film! Actress Kelly Marie Tran is joining the adventure as new character Rose, a mechanic for the resistance who apparently goes on a grand journey with Finn. You can see the first look at her character here:
You can watch the whole panel, hosted by Josh Gad, below. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.
