That trailer was fantasic, although, being from a arid planet like Tatooine, I'd love to hear whether or not Rey likes sand.

But really...does anyone like sand? 

 

I do, even though it's coarse, and gets everywhere. Walking barefoot in fine sand is one of the most relaxing things ever.

Depends on your perspective of the "dark" side. Or the "light/good" side for that matter. I for one, would love a bit more ambiguity in contrast to the polarizing sides of good and evil, within the universe. I have a pretty good feeling that this trilogy is treating the mythology with a bit more finesse and ambivalence. the contrast isn't so obvious, thematically. 

 

I think Rey is the balance. She will be able to utilize both light and dark sides. I still think the symbol from the first trailer when it she says "balance" is the exact same symbol she was making with her lightsaber on the first poster. 

 

She will bring harmony to the force and end the Sith and Jedi, utilizing both sides of the forces to her will while never being compromised. Good luck displaying that in the movie though...

I think we call all agree it's coarse and gets everywhere. That goes without saying.

Squint and you can see Darth Vader!!!

 

Actually, my first thought on seeing that poster was that the overshadowing character is usually the bad guy. Either Vader or Emperor. To me, they're at least implying that Luke is the Bad Guy, in this one.

There is a lot of red in this poster. The dark side is certainly going to be prevalent in The Last Jedi.

I also have a feeling there is going to be quite a bit more subtlety and ambiguity between the "light side" and "dark side". Have a feeling this one is gonna be pretty dark. TONS of red overtones in the trailer as well as the posters. I also think there's more misdirection in the trailer than some think. They're smart enough to not give too much obvious stuff away and to want people to be surprised. I think there will be some big ones in this installment.

Very interesting observation. It does match their trailer when Luke says the Jedi must die. I can't image they will make Luke evil though. Already lost Han last movie and we know there will be no Leia going forward so they can't be that mean to all us old people.

I was kinda hoping for a title like "Smuggler's Luck", something a little more creative.

New trailer dropped out of nowhere last night during WS game 7.  Good number of new shots.  I'm gonna have to call my doctor because this thing has definitely lasted more than four hours.

Avoiding this thread like the plague. Internetz will not ruin TLJ for me like it did TFA. I haven't seen the first teaser, I haven't

seen the second trailer, in the words of Manuel from Fawlty Towers: "I know nothing!"

 

Hardcore, baby, hardcore...

I really hope that there's a lot of misdirection going on because I'm not going to lie, I'm not really liking some of what I'm seeing. Factor that in with Hamill's comments recently, I'm not sure I'm liking the direction they are taking with Luke.   However, I'll wait to judge when when the movie comes out.

I wonder if the new trailer will be in front of Thor tonight? Actually any of the three trailers will be just fine.

That's a LOT of brokeback! Likely too much for any young padawan to handle.
