The first full length trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was an inspiring one, indeed. It brought to the table everything fans have wanted to see in a Star Wars film. Lots of action, a darker story, and outstanding visuals. However, there was one thing that us fans couldn’t stop talking about.

At the very end of the trailer, Rey said, “I need someone to show me my place in all this.” That line was followed by a shot of Kylo Ren, and then another shot of him holding out his hand, seeming to invite Rey to come under his wing. But was this nothing but a red herring from the Lucasfilm marketing machine?

While we still can’t confirm with 100 percent certainty that it’s the case, the latest teaser (shown above) may have our first hints that it indeed was. At about 38 seconds into the teaser, when Rey says, “Kylo failed you. I won’t,” the shot looks very similar to the shot at the end of the previous trailer.

Take a look below!

Of course, they aren’t exactly the same (it’s obviously a different shot), but the lighting and all-around setting looks very similar. Plus, it wouldn’t come as a big surprise if Rey’s line, “I need someone to show me my place in all this” came immediately after that “Kylo Ren failed you” line.

Does it look to you like the ending of that last trailer was Lucasfilm just messing with us? Let us know down below!
