Slowly but surely, Disney is beginning to peel back the many layers of Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Just the other day, for instance, we caught wind of new character details relating to Kylo Ren and Poe Dameron, who will seemingly strike fear in both the First Order and the Resistance come December. As for Adam Driver’s budding Sith, there have been rumblings that his ongoing pursuit of the dark side isn’t enough to impress Supreme Leader Snoke, leaving Andy Serkis’ disfigured mega-villain with little choice but to mold Rey into his newfound disciple.
At least, that’s the big ‘what if?’ currently doing the rounds online, though without any official word from Lucasfilm, those questions will likely linger around right up until December 15th. However, we might just get some more hints next month, as the studio is gearing up to release one final trailer before The Last Jedi blasts into theatres. How do we know this? Well, a listing from the British Board of Film Classification has seemingly let the cat out of the bag.
Unfortunately, the upcoming preview won’t give us very much, as it’ll only run for 91 seconds. Still, it’s better than nothing and with so many mysteries swirling around the pic, we’ll take whatever new footage we can get our hands on. That being said, just don’t expect too many concrete answers, as we all know how coy Lucasfilm likes to play things when it comes to their marketing. Not to mention how tricky they are with their clever editing.
There’s no firm release date for this next and final trailer just yet, but given that Episode VIII is hitting theatres mid-December, we imagine a debut at some point towards the end of November would make the most sense. Chalk that up as speculation for now, but we’ll be sure to let you know once something surfaces in regards to when it’ll be with us.
Following the back-to-back success of The Force Awakens and Rogue One, Disney and Rian Johnson will launch Star Wars: The Last Jedi into theaters on December 15th. It’s currently tracking for a massive opening weekend ($215 million), even if it’s poised to fall just short of J.J. Abrams’ franchise reboot.
