At least Snoke looks a lot better this time around.

I wonder if they’re cheating with that last shot? Do we technically see Rey and Ren in the same frame?

I think it might be Rey’s vision, she asks him in her force vision to help choose where she’s supposed to be, then she wakes up and falls to the ground gasping for air, like in the teaser. Then she dives into the water and climbs out. She then tells Luke what happened and what she thinks she needs to do. Then Luke says, “This is not going to go the way you think!” Which eventually leads to her in front of Snoke frozen in place after defeating some of the red Praetorian guards.

Remember Luke has been down this road before. He saw his friends in Cloud city in his vision too, but Yoda warns him that, “Hard to see, the future is.” Luke is warning Rey, what she sees in her vision, isn’t going to be what actually happens, because the future is always in motion.

That’s what I took from the trailer. I hope this helps.

I can do the voices of C-3PO, Old Ben Kenobi, the Emperor, and Yoda.

I still am trying to piece together what madness might go down in the third act.

It almost seems foolhardy to even try at this point. Think of everything we know is in the movie that we didn’t see in the trailer. No Canto Bight. No Rose Tico. No Vice Admiral Holdo or DJ. I wouldn’t be surprised if we find out when we finally see the movie that almost all of the trailer footage was from the first act, like it was with TFA.

If you forget about all of the shots of the forest battle and X-Wings on Starkiller base.

So, in that last scene, Kylo Ren’s scar is practically healed. It is the only shot with him looking like that. I am assuming that this shot comes from the end of the movie, but i guess there could be a lot of other explanations.

Well, in the other shots with him, we see a band-aid of some kind over the scar. Maybe it’s a fast heal synthskin thingy?

The Led Zeppelin Thor trailer is still the best trailer I’ve ever seen, but this one is pretty good too. Everything about this looks excellent. I love the score. I’ve already got tickets for Thursday night and Friday morning.

There’s been an awakening. Have you felt it?

Makes sense. Not everyone is an Anakin Skywalker (Oh, is that my severed-but-otherwise-undamaged-and-perfectly-reattachable hand lying on the ground? Forget it. Just forget it. I’ve got a Terminator 2 fetish, anyway.).

But how could they make it Rhyme without giving a bullshit excuse as to why Anakin is like Luke and has a robot hand too?

Luke’s robo hand has the blaster damage from Jedi. Nice.

Synthskin or Sithskin? 😉

I was resolutely not going to watch this trailer and was going into antispoilerlockdown mode but I kept getting told how great it was so I caved in!

I liked it except for how “busy” a lot of the effects shots looked but then it’s a trailer so of course all the exciting parts are going to be on show.

I’m reasonably sure the end was two different scenes but I’m looking forward to being wrong.

Loved how Rey’s lightsaber swings were timed with the music, it won’t be like that in the film so it shows the care they took to make it (whoever that was.)

By the way, did anybody spot the AT-ST?!

“This is not going to go the way you think.”
