There will be spoilers ahead for Episode 7 The Force Awakens
Star Wars The Last Jedi picks up right at the end of Episode 7 when Rey found Luke. In the trailer, we see a lot of Rey’s training and the island. There is a wide shot with what appears to be Rey practicing wielding a lightsaber on a narrow piece of land that’s reminiscent of Karate Kid when Daniel is practicing the crane kick on the beach. We also get to see Rey channeling the force and causing rocks to raise up around her in a similar effect to Superman taking flight in Man of Steel. It’s clear that Luke is has taken on Rey as his apprentice to help her hone her skills. That’s what makes the final line of the trailer so ominous. Luke says that it’s clear to him that the Jedi must come to an end.
We also get to see Finn, Kylo, and Poe in quick shots. Poe has stumbled into some trouble again, and someone is piloting the Millennium Falcon with Chewbacca. Finn is being rushed down a hallway in a pod with what look like his vital signs on the glass. Finally, Kylo appears to be more menacing with a scar over his right eye from that final blow Rey gave him with her lightsaber at the end of Force Awakens, and the blade and hilt of Kylo’s lightsaber is more volatile than it was before. Could his hatred of Rey and what she did to him make Kylo stronger with the dark side?
