Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage reveals Luke's first words to Rey

Posted on

It pays to be a Disney shareholder. While Star Wars fans are waiting on the first trailer for The Last Jedi, the House of Mouse screened top-secret footage from the eighth chapter in the Skywalker saga during a Disney shareholders meeting. Fortunately, we have a few details.

According to Los Angeles Times reporter Daniel Miller, who tweeted out some movie morsels, the footage featured Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) asking Rey (Daisy Ridley), “Who are you?” before the prospective padawan “deftly” handles a lightsaber.

Finn (John Boyega) and Chewbacca were also spotted, while Carrie Fisher’s General Leia Organa appeared briefly in military attire. Elsewhere in the footage, Miller reports sweeping scenes of “mountains, oceans, forests, deserts,” as well as “an X-Wing wobbling mid-air, under attack inside a giant ship.”

For now, that’s all we’re getting.

Disney revealed a sliver of Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage to the public with its start-of-production video (see below). Compared to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the studio is keeping a trailer under wraps for a longer time. (Perhaps until Star Wars Celebration.) That might be because there’s a lot more going on in that galaxy far, far away — Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hit theaters just a few months ago, and the still-untitled Han Solo film recently kicked off production.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, directed by Looper‘s Rian Johnson, is expected in theaters on Dec. 15.
