Lucasfilm has finally released a look at Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi and there were some amazing scenes in the video. Here are a few things that stood out…
A Darker Movie?
The lighting on many of the sets seemed darker than the general look of Episode 7. There was a lot of emphasis on dark browns, blacks, etc. Even the background lighting seemed dim in some scenes. Could this be a hint that the story line will be darker than that of The Force Awakens?
Daisy Ridley (Rey) can be seen practising fight sequences with a staff as well as a lightsaber. Maybe we’ll see an action sequence with her trusty staff before she goes full-on Jedi.
Luke’s New, Darker Look
Later on in the video, we see Luke wearing dark robes. While this isn’t a huge indicator of his allegiance, it’s in stark contrast to his attire in The Force Awakens. Are we going to see a more conflicted Jedi Master?
Finn seems to be healing from his battle with Kylo Ren quite nicely, however, we do get a glimpse at his recovery; eagle-eyed fans will notice his medical pod opening up in a med bay. Will Finn have any cybernetic augmentations in the new movie?
Actors in Action
We also get to see a lot of the new characters in motion for the first time. Laura Dern, Benicio del Toro and Kelly Marie Tran can all be seen in action as their new characters. What part will these new additions play in Episode 8?
Undercover First Order Infiltrator?
Going back to Kelly Marie Tran, we see her character Rose Tico undercover in a First Order uniform next to Finn. Anyone else getting Rogue One flashbacks?
Notable mentions: Rey’s new outfit, Chewbacca possibly flying an X-Wing as well as a whole load of new, well designed creatures, (most notably a creature I’ll now christen as “Diamond Fox”)! Carrie Fisher featured heavily (we will always miss you) and of course, “it’s a wrap!”
Let us know what you notice while watching the video below and as always MTFBWY!
