So the most anticipated trailer, at least for me, has finally dropped. We finally have our first teaser trailer of The Last Jedi that has come out during Star Wars Celebration. Before we delve into talking about it let me point out that this review will more than probably have no objectivity whatsoever. Star Wars brings out the fanboy inside of me and it has remained one of my greatest loves since I was a kid. Watching Star Wars Celebration on my computer I was very excited and sensing the trailer arriving I was jumping around my apartment so as you can imagine it was going to be very difficult for me not to enjoy the trailer.

Without a doubt I absolutely LOVED the new trailer. It had everything I wanted and more as it made me excited about the film without revealing too much information as I do not want to know a lot about the movie before I actually see it. The trailer with the use of music immediately took us to that world we all love, to that galaxy far far away that has become a second home for many of us. When I see a trailer or a movie the most important thing for me is that it delivers emotionally and this trailer definitely did that.

If we go into details the trailer seems to be building towards a movie in which the central figure will be Luke Skywalker and his personal struggle, all of this while Rey is trained by him and Finn, Poe and Leia continue the struggle against the powerful First Order. The Last Jedi will show us, as seen in the trailer, Rey training in the planet where the first Jedi Temple was created Ahch-To. We have seen in a quick scene what appears to be some of the first books written by the Jedi and in my favourite scene from the trailer we see Luke over watching Rey training with her lightsabre. The trailer is action packed as we also see several scenes of the Resistance fighting against The Last Order in different planets and a classic and must happen in any Star Wars movie, spaceship battles.

 In this movie we are finally going to see Luke Skywalker interact with the new generation of characters and from the trailer we can clearly see we are going to have a jaded Luke. The destruction of the temple where he was training the new generation of Jedi, seen in a flashback in the trailer, has clearly changed him and he seems to have come to the conclusion that the way of the Jedi is wrong (maybe reading those books he realized that the original Jedi teachings have changed and they must return to those) and seems in the path to becoming a Gray Jedi. As seen in the dialogue during the trailer the balance in the force in this movie is going to be found somewhere between the light side and the dark side and this is highlighted in that scene in which Luke seems to be guiding Rey through meditation and she sees images of Leia, Kylo etc…all accompanied by whispers of other characters like Yoda, Obi-Wan and what seems to be Padme.

The trailer has worked perfectly for me and has delivered in every way that matters. I am incredibly excited to see this movie and happy about the way it seems to be going. The wait for the movie is going to be very long and I can’t wait for December to finally come. As I wait all I can do in the words for Luke Skywalker is “Breathe, just breathe” and rejoice in the fact that in 8 months my favourite movie saga, Star Wars, will be back with its new instalment, Star Wars The Last Jedi.
