There are only a few weeks to go until The Last Jedi trailer arrives.
If Disney and Lucasfilm are following the pattern established promoting Rogue One, this will be the one and only main trailer for Episode 8.
Apart from some short TV spots and minor content variations in international trailers, it is fans’ last chance to get as much information as they can in advance of the film’s release.
New trailer leaks have revealed some exciting scenes and another brand new ship, but, for once, it does not belong to the flashy First Order. Plus there is great news for Finn and Poe bromance shippers.
Star Wars Youtube channel Mike Zeroh cites sources at Lucasfilm and at Pinewood and other Star Wars sets around the world. He made six new revelations.
1. “There is a wide shot of a new flagship that appears to be part of the Resistance going through space over an unknown planet.”
After recent reveals of hugely impressive new First Order ships, including Snoke’s 60-kilometre-long Supremacy, it will be good to see the plucky underdogs holding their own with some major hardware.
2. “Back shot of Luke with his satchel climbing the steps (of the Jedi temple) on Ahch-To. They both turn around and appear to be looking at something.”
Is this the moment that the First Order and Kylo Ren invade the planet?
3. “A panning camera of Ahch-To with Luke and Rey side by side looking out to the ocean on a cliff.”
Could this be the moment Luke tells Rey she must fight the hugely-anticipated sea-monster?
4. “An altered shot of Rey inside the clochan with her lightsaber. Her hood is up over her head and this shot has her igniting the lightsaber.”
Rey is expected to undergo intense training but she is also rumoured to be meeting either Anakin or Yoda as a Force ghost. A dark cave-like clochan would be the perfect place.
5. “ A birds-eye view of the main casino at Canto Bight with speeders taking off at night. The speeders have a distinct sound.”
Previous reports and on-set images indicate there will be a thrilling speeder chase through the streets of Canto Bight, involving Finn and Rose being pursued by the casino security guards.
6. “Finn and Poe running through the resistance base at D’Qar with many explosions.”
Apart from sounding like an exciting moment, this will also reassure fans that their cherished Star Wars bromance is back on and stronger than ever (if in mortal danger, yet again).
