Thoughts on the first teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

Recommended Posts

Man, did they really show the first teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi already? I thought they'd wait until May 4th to do so. But, I guess Star Wars Celebration is as good an excuse as any to show it as well. xD

 

At any rate, here it is if you haven't seen it yet.

 

 

So, real talk: I actually don't care for this teaser much.

 

I guess the better trailer that will show more is still coming later on this year, but I think it largely is not a great teaser even.

 

The most important bit this teaser shows is that Luke has a bit of a changed perspective on the Force at this point, and that everything that has happened with Kylo Ren (and the Knights of) probably has led him to believe that the Jedi need to disappear just as much as the Sith do if balance in the Force can be achieved. That's interesting.

 

Everything else... wasn't? There was little excitement to me because everything they've shown, we've largely seen before. Or more accurately, it's too similar to what we've seen in the last movie. It also wastes a ton of time in the first half of the teaser with Rey and Luke.

 

Honestly, I didn't expect them to shown tons of footage, but I expected more than we got. The first non-teaser trailer we got for The Force Awakens was pretty good, so it's a shame this didn't follow suit.

 

Anyhow, I'm still looking forward to the movie. What'd you guys think of the trailer?

Yea I agree you don't get much from this trailer but it is a teaser after all and they shouldn't shown more. I am surprised to see that Luke say the Jedi must end. I want to learn more about that and I really just want to know the origin of Rey power.

The teaser was ok. I am not a fan of seeing the entire movie before I see the movie so as little show the better. I'm not very excited for this movie because The force awakens was a very bad movie with bad characters. They will really need to give it 200% effort if they hope to match the quality of Rogue One.

Like most people it doesn't really do anything for me. I mean, yeah, I don't want them to give away the entire movie up front either, but I need something to get excited about, and vague shots of the characters kinda standing around while a voiceover plays aren't exciting. By the time the action does ramp up at the end of the teaser I was already too bored to care, but thankfully it's not going to diminish my interest in the movie. It just doesn't help make me MORE interested is all.

Why did you think the episode 7 was so bad? It was a really good movie.

The force awakens was a lazy mess. It was just a copy paste of past Star wars movies. Kylo was just an annoying whining baby. BB8 was the only good thing about the movie. 

 

This is a much better movie

Lol, yeah I saw this last week. Pretty cool that Mark Hamill took part in it; he does a SURPRISINGLY good job as Harrison Ford!
