A new TV spot and more stills have arrived for The Last Jedi, and forget Dark and Light — we’re joining the Drama Side.
The hype continues to build as The Last Jedi draws ever closer, and a new teaser — tantalizingly titled “Tempt” — isn’t helping us calm down any.
This new TV spot for The Last Jedi is the latest of several such spots. The teasers have begun building out the various elements of Rian Johnson’s take on Star Wars, focusing strongly on Luke and Finn respectively.
This time, the spotlight turns to what appears to be at the center of The Last Jedi — the painful bonds between Rey and Kylo Ren, nimbused by Luke, Leia, and Snoke.
In the TV spot, Luke guides Rey through a now-familiar meditation. But Rey’s journey through the Force hits a rough patch as violence breaks out in brief clips.
“It’s calling me,” says an anguished Rey, as Kylo seems to offer her his hand. “Resist it, Rey!” Luke urges her, as she slips deeper into the grip of this unknown force.
And then the TV spot ends, because of course it does!
New images from The Last Jedi have also recently been released by Entertainment Weekly. Some are on the lighter end of things — new looks at Rose Tico and Amilyn Holdo, for example — but many focus on the coming clash (and blend?) between the light side and the dark.
With each new piece of promotional material, we wind up with more questions than before. But on thing is for sure — The Last Jedi is not going to give us the answers we expect.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on Dec. 15.
