“Reach out,” Luke Skywalker tells Rey, “What do you see?” “Light, darkness — and something else,” she replies. “It’s calling me.” Check out the latest promo for Star Wars: The Last Jedi above.
In the spot titled “Tempt,” Mark Hamill’s crusty warrior tries to keep Daisy Ridley’s fresher warrior from leaning the wrong way. Will he succeed? Is that really what’s at stake here? These questions and more hang heavy in the latest installment of Disney and Lucasfilm’s uber-franchise.
In writer-director’s Rian Johnson’s film, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join galactic legends in an adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past. Star Wars originals Hamill and the late Carrie Fisher join neo-veterans Ridley, John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels and Gwendoline Christie in the eighth installment of the storied space opera. Series newcomers in Last Jedi include Bille Lourd, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.
Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman produced The Last Jedi, with J.J. Abrams, Tom Karnowski and Jason McGatlin exec producing. The film blasts into theaters December 15.
