Star Wars 8: Characters In Teaser Revealed?


In January, Lucasfilm announced the official title for Star Wars: Episode VIII as The Last Jedi, and the fan community has been buzzing ever since. Viewers have spent the past few weeks trying to deduct its possible meanings, and even Daisy Ridley's Murder on the Orient Express co-stars are attempting to crack the case. Disney has characteristically been quite secretive about the latest chapter in the Skywalker family saga, a marketing strategy that paid massive dividends with The Force Awakens in 2015.

The Last Jedi is widely considered the year's most-anticipated movie, so Lucasfilm is really in no rush to start their promotional efforts en masse. However, there will eventually be official trailers for the film, and all signs are pointing to Star Wars Celebration in April being the site of the first preview's premiere. Now, a new rumor has provided a roll call of who audiences can expect to see in the footage, whenever that day does come.

According to Star Wars News Net, the Resistance will be heavily featured in the teaser, as Luke Skywalker, General Leia Organa, Finn, and Rey are all in line to appear. There has been speculation of late that Luke would be absent from trailers again, as he was for Episode VII. Fortunately, SWNN is saying those reports are false, and the elder Jedi will be seen - and hopefully heard.
