Details are few and far between on the specifics of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. We know it picks up after The Force Awakens, obviously, but after that, your guess is as good as ours. Fortunately, we have some tiny morsels of information to hold us over while we continue to await the first trailer.
Warning: The following contains possible spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi
The annual shareholders meeting for The Walt Disney Company went down in Denver Wednesday and the highlight of the meeting was a screening of the very first The Last Jedi footage. We’re all Peanut Butter and Jelly right now.
Disney CEO Bob Iger unveiled the footage for those in attendance. The clip is said to pick up from the final moments of The Force Awakens when Rey hands Luke the lightsaber. The LA Times reports that the clip sees Luke finally deliver a line of dialogue, asking Rey “Who are you?” before accepting his weapon.
Additional footage was shown that featured Chewbacca, General Leia Organa, and Finn, as well as a handful of different settings (mountains, oceans, forests, deserts). There was also a clip of “an X-Wing wobbling mid-air, under attack inside a giant ship.”
That’s it, those are all the new details and updates on The Last Jedi sadly. Hopefully, it’s enough to hold you over until Lucasfilm drops the first official trailer, which is expected to come at Star Wars Celebration in April.
