There’s an all-new behind the scenes teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi being shown in theaters and you’re going to want to watch it…
The closer we get to December 15, the more we’re seeing snippets of footage from Star Wars: The Last Jedi is being strategically released by Disney/Lucasfilm in order to keep building hype for the film. This is nothing unusual, and has been the standard operating procedure by Disney since The Force Awakens was released in 2015, then continued in 2016 with Rogue One.
In that regard, if you’re planning on seeing Disney/Pixar’s new animated film, Coco, then you will be in for a treat, as an all-new behind the scenes teaser for The Last Jedi is playing in front of the film, and it shows Rey and Chewie confronting Luke Skywalker.
The footage is still in theaters, but thanks to Instagram user ReyloFangirls, we can see what unfolds. Check it out:
As you can see, the BTS teaser shows director Rian Johnson discussing how awe-inspiring it was to film Luke Skywalker on set for the first time. We also get a neat quote from Luke, from the film itself. Rey says “we need your help,” and Luke answers:
You think that I came to the most unfindable place in the Galaxy for no reason at all?
The fact that Rey is using “we” when asking for help, and the fact that Chewbacca is beside her when she makes this request (remember, he stayed with the Falcon as Rey went searching), added to the fact that Luke is in his darker clothing, probably means this scene takes place sometime after Rey initially confronts Luke at the end of The Force Awakens.
Hold onto your seats, folks, we’re just shy of two weeks away from the worldwide premiere of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, on December 15.
