Who Is The Last Jedi? 'The Last Jedi' Trailer Left Fans With Some Questions
That shout of excitement you heard across the galaxy wasn't just your imagination. The trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been released and fans are officially pumped. But the trailer left some burning questions. Like, who is the last Jedi? Is it Luke? Is it Rey? Is there more than one?
Fans have been speculating for a while. When the title was released earlier this year, the internet exploded as everyone began questioning which Jedi the title referred to. Obviously, Luke Skywalker was the first choice, but does the title imply that something's going to happen to Luke, leaving Rey as the last Jedi? Did the Force make its way to Leia?
There's also the fact that Jedi can be used as the plural term for those who have the Force. So is there more than one out there? Are fans in for the start of a trilogy with a whole new set of Jedi?
And let's not forget that Jedi aren't always good guys. Darth Vader was a Jedi at one point, too. Could the last Jedi be Kylo Ren? In The Force Awakens, fans learned that Luke had been training Kylo Ren, but that his nephew had too much of his grandfather, Darth Vader, in him. Will The Last Jedi be Kylo Ren's redemption story?
The trailer didn't really answer this question. For one thing, you don't even see Luke. Is he the one training Rey? Who's fighting Kylo Ren? There's no evidence that the Jedi in The Last Jedi is plural, but that doesn't mean that theory is pointless either. Basically, Lucasfilm released an epic tease in the form of this trailer and all Star Wars fans everywhere are pulling on their theory caps to figure out what in the galaxy is going on here.
Waiting until Dec. 15 is going to be tough. With the end of The Force Awakens leaving fans confused about who Rey's parents are, why Luke is in hiding, and if the two of them are going to work together, this new trailer is leaving fans with even more speculation. But if there's one thing the Star Wars films are known for, it's adventure and a fantastic story. No matter who the last Jedi is (I'm personally hoping the term is plural in this sense and refers to Kylo Ren, Luke, and Rey), the trailer has fans pumped for another trip into the galaxy.
