The new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer was finally released, and it has done its job of emotionally winding up fans to drive them to box office sites like Fandango. Now that the trailer is out, let's break down the details that you probably missed. 

#1- Luke is Scared of Rey's Power

Feature Detail

Ever since the first Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser came out, we know that Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) wants the Jedi to end, and the new trailer might reveal why. Remember how Luke couldn't pull his X-Wing out of the bog in Dagobah and Yoda had to do it for him? Based on what we've seen so far, it looks like Rey (Daisy Ridley) doesn't have any of those "I can't" hang-ups. Rey already proved that she has skills with the Force and lightsaber but when she splits the rock they're standing on, he looks afraid at her massive amount of power. “I’ve seen this raw strength only once before," he says. "It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now.”

It looks like Luke decides to stop her training because he remembers what happened to his former apprentice, Kylo Ren (a.k.a. Ben Solo), and sees his similarity with Rey. 

#2- Kylo Ren's Old Shuttle

Feature Detail

We already know that Kylo Ren will have a new TIE Fighter model in Star Wars: The Last Jedi but what about his old shuttle? 

Since Kylo Ren's shuttle appeared in The Force Awakens and that he's confirmed to get a new TIE Fighter in The Last Jedi, some fans believe that the old shuttle won't appear in the sequel. However, the new trailer and the new poster revealed Kylo Ren's shuttle. 

We still don't know if the shuttle will play a huge role in the film or if Kylo Ren is even in that ship. Top officers like General Hux might be aboard that ship. 

#3- Leia is in Charge of The Resistance's Fleet

Feature Detail

The late Carrie Fisher doesn't appear much in this trailer but it shows that her role has been upped significantly. She appears to be in charge of the Resistance and its entire fleet. However, she looks troubled, so does that mean that Kylo Ren will end up killing his mother? 

#4- Darth Vader Parallels

Feature Detail

It's clear that Kylo Ren wants to live up to his grandfather's legacy, Although Darth Vader turned back to the Light Side and sacrificed himself to end the evil reign of the Emperor, Ren refers to that as a "momentary lapse of judgement." In The Force Awakens, Ren made it clear that he wants to fulfill Vader's mission to destroy the Resistance and “finish what [he] started.” Those wishes are portrayed on the new trailer's imagery. 


Recurring motifs include the scene that shows Kylo Ren and a squad of First Order troopers invading the Resistance base on Crait. This mirrors the Revenge of the Sith scene in which Darth Vader and the Clone Troopers invade the Jedi Temple on Coruscant after Order 66 was executed.
