TV & FILM

The last time we saw Luke Skywalker on board the Millennium Falcon, he was being rescued by Leia and Lando after his duel with Vader at the end of Empire. Sadly, his latest visit to the iconic spacecraft—in the upcoming The Last Jedi—will also be absent its most famous owner, Han Solo, who was killed prior to Luke getting involved in the new trilogy.
This new 45 second TV spot gives us some brand new footage, like Luke turning on the Falcon's power and Hux meeting Snoke in his throne room on board the latter's Mega Star Destroyer named Supremacy. Yikes. We also get more clarity on one of the biggest moments in the most recent trailer. The shot of Luke on the ground in the rain saying, "This is not going to go the way that you think," was presumed to be a flashback from Kylo Ren's destruction of Luke's new Jedi order. It turns out he is indeed addressing Rey, who is standing over him with her lightsaber ready to engage.
There are two potential ways to interpret that. One, it's an innocuous moment from her training wherein she gets the upper hand on Luke and he says that before doing some Force trick that disarms her. OR, perhaps, this comes after Rey has decided to team up with Kylo Ren and they're abandoning their teachers to do lord knows what. It's all intriguing stuff until you remember that around this time two years ago, people were convinced that Finn was gonna be a Jedi because he was wielding a lightsaber in the Force Awakens trailer. So let's not get ahead of ourselves. Seven weeks from tonight, Star Wars: The Last Jedi makes its debut.
