The international trailer for The Last Jedi is sadly underwhelming


Lucasfilm has released the international trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and sadly, we’ve found it lacking…

If you were hoping Star Wars: The Last Jedi would follow in the footsteps of The Force Awakens (2015) and Rogue One (2016) by having loads of fun and extra scenes revealed through their respective international trailers, then we’ve got some bad news for you, it didn’t. Check it out, but we serious, don’t get your hopes up.

While no, there aren’t many new scenes in here (Rey in the cave, BB-8 and C-3PO), there is a bit of dialogue in the beginning that catches the ear, as Rey seems to be appealing to Luke.

"Something inside me has always been there….and now it’s awake. I need help."

We’ve heard these lines before, only, the were broken up throughout the first  two trailers for the film. Now, it seems like Rey will be delivering this line to Luke after she meets him on the island where he’s been in exile on the oceanic planet of Ahch-To.

However, will Luke accept and train her, or will she have to seek another, willing to teach her in the ways of the Force. As with the full cinematic trailer, it’s pieced together to make it seem as if Rey, in the end, asks Kylo Ren for help finding her “place in all of this.”

This wasn’t the only international The Last Jedi property released today, as the international Japanese poster made its glorious way online, and as you will see, there are some major changes from the official US/UK version.

The obviously major difference here is, Luke and Rey have switched spots. But, don’t for one moment think the Japanese have simply swapped heads on bodies, as Rey is rocking her red robes, and Luke is holding his familial lightsaber with his robotic hand.

Perhaps the greatest addition to this international poster for TLJ is, however, the Porg resting on Chewbacca’s shoulder! I honestly could see an entire poster full of Porgs, but I digress.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15, hopefully with more Porgs…loads more Porgs.
