There is plenty going on in this latest trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi and much of it centers around Rey (Daisy Ridley). Luke (Mark Hamill) recognizes she harnesses powers he’s only seen once before and he is frightened of what it could mean should he continue training her. Supreme Leader Snoke knows it too and, as The Emperor before him did with Luke, will do whatever is necessary to get Rey to unleash her strength and turn her to the dark side. There’s also a possible goodbye to Leia (Carrie Fisher died late last year) as it is teased her son, the conflicted Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), who has already killed his father Han in “Star Wars: The Force Awakens,” takes aim her way. How her fate plays out is anybodies guess at this point, but it’s sure be a interesting tug-of-war for Rey’s mind and soul to watch play out come December. Watch for yourself in the embedded trailer courtesy of Lucasfilm.
