Star Wars Episode VIII: THE LAST JEDI

All the dirt. All the top secret stuff. Anything that has to do with the process of getting us to sit and watch something projected on the big screen.

Maybe by The Last Jedi they mean the Jedi that immediately preceded the current Jedi?

Rian Johnson says avoid if you want to completely avoid spoilers..."but it's gooooooood...."

Upon Rian's advice, I'm gonna try and avoid. I don't want great character revelations to be unsurprising when I see them happen in the theatre.

Plus, which is a bit *ironic (*Get Out Of Jail free word to stop me being a hypocrite) I so far haven't seen anything about this film that really fascinates me. Finn on a mission with some R2D2 version of an asian human running around with him, "Oooh watch Rey stop just inches before destroying that.... rock face"

I hope with stuff like this I got mental ammunition to hold my breath until mid- Dec.

I remember willingly being spoiled for the prequels. I still had a good enough time at the theater. I saw rumblings about Han's death in The Force Awakens...still enjoyed the film. I can't imagine anything being so spoilerrific* that I have a shitty time at the theater. Truth be told, if my experience for Episode VIII matches that of Episode VII, the bulk of my joy will come from watching my kids enjoy the film. I'm taking my oldest two kids this time (son 9, daughter 8).

*But still, Rian Johnson did say that...... No, there's no way I could successfully navigate a personal Star Wars media embargo. Some people may do it with ease, but I am weak! So, so weak......

Yeah...I really have no idea what to expect from this film. That's gotta be a good thing. They are going out of their way to hammer home that this movie is going to be different, it's actually getting to be kinda funny. But some freshness is definitely necessary.

Cautiously optimistic.

i didn't get much of a spoiler sense from that. i mean, there are hints of things, but it's easy to chalk that up to creative trailer editing, juxtaposition of shots that might actually be from completely different scenes in the movie, lines taken out of context, shots that aren't even in the film (just like the last film's trailer) etc.

good luck to anyone trying to avoid this trailer because of fear of spoilers. everything that is "spoiled" about this film in the trailer will also be in tv ads, interviews, articles, internet comments, or anywhere else star wars gets discussed. might as well just watch it now and get fake-spoiled until you see the film and find out how things really happen.

on another note, it's nice to see Tom Petty killing it in his final film role.

I believe Rian Johnson's warning is just marketing. I also believe this trailer was very carefully edited.

-Do Rey and Kylo Ren team up? Possibly, but I think that "scene" shown is from two different parts of the film. I think that's Rey talking to Luke when she meets him in the beginning of the film. And Kylo Ren's scene.... I dunno, maybe Hux was screaming so loud that he fell down and needed help up.
-Kylo's Space Band-Aid on his face is because this movie starts at the immediate end of The Force Awakens. He was injured, put a bandage on it, and hopped in his ship to destroy the Resistance.
-(My thoughts if Rey is Luke's child, or even less possible - a lost twin of Kylo Ren) Variations on the Imperial March (Vader's Theme) took up about 2/3 of the trailer. I'd love for Anakin's two grandchildren to team up (light or dark side.... or both!). Kind of like "Okay, George Lucas, you're going to make Midichlorians a thing? And Anakin is the direct product of that? Fine, we'll have that impact his grandchildren!" Of course, if Rey goes dark-side, that could also be the impetus - that she and Kylo are the descendants of someone created by the Sith - an aspect I never really thought about before. Hey Luke, Leia....you're only existing because your dad was created by the Sith. Deal with THAT.
-Porgs! I'd like to think that Lucasfilm/Disney did some deep psychological research on what makes a good "cute" character - Ewoks? Kind of, but plenty of issues. Jar-Jar? Hell. No. BB-8? On the right track now. Baby Groot? Definitely. Some of my older (contemporary) friends/relatives are already complaining about them. My daughter already owns two of them. Kids initially loved Jar-Jar, too....but I think they're a little smarter in the Lucasfilm/Disney offices to not learn from the errors of the past.
-Leia - More trailer editing. She was supposedly to be in Episode 9, so I'd be awfully surprised if she died.
-Luke - Love the updated Crazy Hermit look....except he really looks crazy (Crazy Eyes!). Kind of like a Jedi Grima Wormtongue. Could he die? Easily, but I don't think he will, either. I think it would be kind of cheap to knock off one classic character per film. But I'm definitely more excited to see him now than I was (potentially) for Episode 7.
-Finn and Poe.....seemed really inconsequential in the trailer, and that's okay. Not because I don't like the characters, but they can only show so much in the trailer. We also didn't see any Benicio Del Toro or Laura Dern. Again, that's fine. Leave some stuff for the movie!

I think this was a very well-cut trailer. It showed a ton of stuff and didn't say a damn thing about what it meant while doing it.

Looks pretty damn good to me.

Then again, Rogue One's trailer also looked badass, and it was a forgettable movie IMO.

Holding out hope for this one!

no accounting for taste, being that Rogue One is easily the best SW movie yet :-P
