This New ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Images Spotlight Rey, Kylo Ren, & More

A new set of images from the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi have been aired, spotlighting the key scenes from the movie, such as Rey’s training and other new and returning faces. See images below.

Director Rian Johnson said:

“There’s a history in Star Wars of the attraction between the light and the dark, whether it’s the story of Anakin basically turning from this sweet kid and seeing his seduction to the dark side, or even with Luke,”
Johnson added:
 “Even though you never really believe he’s going to go over to the dark side, the whole revelation of ‘I am your father’ has to do with Vader and this darkness that [Luke] thought he could just dismiss as ‘That’s the bad guy. I don’t have any of him in me,'” . “Suddenly he realizes ‘No, I come from him. I have quite a bit of him inside me.’”

Luke Skywalker finally returns to the Millennium Falcon but he doesn’t look happy about it. That’s probably because it stirs up so many bad memories for the Jedi Master…

Finn and Rose (Kelly Marie Tran) can be seen here escorting BB-8 through the affluent corridors of power in the casino city of Canto Bight, a location this movie will introduce us to.

Well, this is intriguing! As Rey faces an unknown presence (Supreme Leader Snoke, perhaps?), Kylo Ren looms menacingly in the background. Is the former Ben Solo friend or foe to her, though?

“Rian Johnson could have just made me another benevolent Jedi teacher but, you know, we’ve seen that before. And no one can do it better than Sir Alec Guinness,” says Mark Hamill.

Is this image teasing conflict between General Leia and Poe Dameron? That certainly appears to be the case but you have to believe they’ll find common ground before too long here.

A great shot of Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson alongside Carrie Fisher, her tragic death means that this will mark her final appearance in the long-running franchise.

That’s Kylo Ren’s shuttle which is hovering above the AT-M6s, “gorilla walkers” that are surging across the salt flats of the mining world of Crait which look way more imposing that AT-ATs!

This is Laura Dern’s Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, a character who comes in to help steer the Resistance in a new direction. She reportedly clashes with Poe Dameron about how wars should be won.

An awesome shot of the Millennium Falcon hitting lightspeed, what the Porg on board makes of travelling in such a way remains to be seen but it should be fun finding out!

Another familiar shot from the trailers, this scene obviously takes place moments before Kylo Ren smashes his helmet. Why he chooses to do that currently remains a mystery to us.

Rey looks intense here as she trains but is she lowering her lightsaber or about to raise it at Luke Skywalker, the reluctant teacher who seems intent on pushing his new pupil?

One thought

  1. Is it just me, but shouldn’t that Lightsaber that Rey is holding look a little more blue-ish? It looks whiter than I remember it. But there are soooo many other questions we need answers to:

    1. Who is Snoke? Palpatine? Lord Vitiate?

    2. “There has been an Awakening. Have you felt it?” Could this be Rey’s: something inside of me has always been there and now it’s awakened? How, was it awakened? What caused the Awakening? Could that cause be part of the Force itself? Something beyond even the Force? Could that be?

    3. Who is Maz Kanata? Could she secretly be evil and be pretending to be good in neutral?

    4. Where are Rey”s parents now? Who are they? What if they were strong Siths and Luke killed them? What if Rey finds out?

    5. Is Rey a reincarnation of Shmi Skywalker? Or another secret daughter of Padme?

    6. Will hear any communication whatsoever from the Force-ghosts of Yoda it Obi-wan?

    7. In a new trailer, Luke tells Rey to “resist it!.”. It? (Not he, or she). What might “it” be?

    8. What new powers and knowledge does Luke now have?

    9. How and when did Luke first learn of Snoke?

    10. How will the Last Jedi end and lead into episode 9? I hope we get specifics answers.
