Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer
Posted: Posted April 19th, 2017 by Trever Leingod
So basically we were down to one Jedi in Return of the Jedi. The trailer for this film insinuates more than just a title character in Luke being "The Last Jedi" as in he's now the only one left, but that he is perhaps the last there will ever be.
Now Luke is like "it's time for the Jedi to end".
Wasn't much of a return, was it...
The trailer really gives very little to the plot overall, as expected since the last one did the same thing, and leaves an interesting premise.
One thing that bothers me though is that it doesn't seem to connect all that well with what came before it. They are again referring to a "balance" and potentially insinuating that it is lacking due to the Jedi's existence. This contradicts what Anakin accomplished in destroying the Sith. Despite some fan theories suggesting the "balance" meant having two Jedi and two Sith, George Lucas confirmed Anakin completed his destiny by destroying the Sith, not turning on the Jedi, that the Dark Side is essentially a cancer in the Force and not a balancing piece on the either end of the scale. Now they seem to be all like "meh, screw what the original author intended, we'll do our own thing, yo?"
It could be an interesting twist, no doubt, but I definitely hope they didn't end up dropping the ball on consistency and a better arc overall, just to spite Lucas' intentions because of the criticism of the prequel trilogy.
