The trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuted earlier this week during halftime of the Monday Night Football game. Since then the trailer has been viewed over 120 million times around the world, and almost 30 million more times than the first trailer that was released in April:
“In just 24 hours, the trailer was viewed more than 120.1 million times worldwide, making it one of the biggest trailer debuts of all time. It had 29.1 million more views than the film’s first teaser released at Star Wars Celebration last April, and there are 242K (and counting) Twitter posts surrounding Star Wars: The Last Jedi this week.”
The director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson, tweeted out a warning to any fans who wanted to go into the movie completely fresh, that the trailer contained spoilers. The ending scene was pretty big if the film is really heading the way the trailer implied.
While it is possible the end of the trailer had some clever editing, I actually think that Rey and Kylo are in the same room. They both had the glow of the fire on the correct sides of their faces, the misdirection of the trailer lies in Kylo killing Leia, I think this is where they are trying to mislead us, as I actually think Kylo will save or try to save his mother. In my opinion the trailer was fantastic, and having watched reactions around youtube I wasn’t the only one that felt that way.
