Darkness Rises in the Latest Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser

Snoke's throne room The Last Jedi

A few new shots and a whole ton of theories after this week's release of the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser trailer.

Only a few weeks after the release of the full-length Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, fans got to see a few new glimpses of what's to come in the saga's continuation during Game 7 of the World Series.

We get re-introduced to a lot of footage from the previous trailer. However, there are a few new shots we haven't seen and dialogue we haven't heard. The most notable being Luke Skywalker stepping into the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon for the first time in decades and it starting up on its own, like its aware of his presence and ready to avenge its late owner, Han Solo.

The other notable mention is Supreme Leader Snoke sitting in his throne room surrounded by Praetorian Guards when he says "darkness rises and light to meet it." foreshadowing that there is going a confrontation to come between the Resistance and The First Order. We know that Snoke is going to have a somewhat larger role in this film. Although director Rian Johnson claims he wasn't too interested in telling much of Snoke's backstory, the fact that we don't know much about it increases the anticipation of seeing more of him.

We also get our first glimpse at General Hux since we saw him last in The Force Awakens. Although Hux doesn't have any lines, this is where we were told we would be left off with him and Kylo Ren in The Force Awakens during the collapse of Starkiller Base.

One other thing to take note of is the environment. In the official trailer a few weeks back, we see what we're assuming to be Kylo Ren being over to pick up his crossguard lightsaber. I can't help but speculate it was laying on the ground for a specific reason. Maybe there is going to be a confrontation between Kylo Ren, General Hux, and Snoke?

This would fit with my theory of Ren returning to the Light Side of the force. We already know he's conflicted in his thoughts and actions and is seeking approval from his grandfather. What we don't know is what version of his grandfather? Anakin Skywalker or Darth Vader?

The final thing I'd like to mention is when Luke Skywalker is lying on the ground in the rain; then we see a shot of Rey igniting a lightsaber. If this is the actual confrontation that happens in the film, then this completely debunks my theory of Kylo Ren and the Knights of Ren overpowering him when the Jedi Temple gets burned in the flashback from The Force Awakens. Again assuming that's what's happening here in the trailer.
