Episode 8 of Star Wars. One more till the big ending, unless of course Disney try to milk it even further (which they probably will).
Anyway, the trailer was released Yesterday.
So, the first 45 seconds feel like we’re watching the next Harry Potter movie. The soundtrack, then the stones being lifted through the force. It just seems more like a Harry Potter adventure.
Then we get to the juicy bit. I quote:
Luke “What do you see?”
Rey “Light, Darkness, the balance”
I’m sorry, but I DONT NEED THE FORCE TO TELL ME THAT. THERES A WAR FOR A REASON!!!
Anyway, I’m just going to ignore that. Because the next line is important.
Luke “Its so much bigger”
So I’m guessing theres like a steady gradient which goes through all the different levels of grey between light and dark. No, just me…
Otherwise its useless. Before someone thinks. But Joe, Kylo Ren said
“I only know one truth, it’s time for the Jedi to end”
Now sure theres a few ways of connotating that.
- He’s talking about them joining the sith
- They quit
- He goes and tries to kill them all
Hate to say it, but its probably the third one. Meaning there’ll be no difference at all between him and any other sith member.
Actually looking back, there is one more little thing to say. We saw Fin, so we can assume he didnt die of his wounds, yet. The video showed him in what looked like a white med bay, but of course in Star Wars that could be just as simply be a fighter seat and he’s closing his eyes to use the force. Kinda hope its the second of two. As something is clearly going on there…
