Luke speaks – and starts Rey on her training – in trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

But why does Luke want the Jedi... to end?


If The Force Awakens brought back the action and adventure of Star Wars, it looks like The Last Jedi could bring back the magic.


Set predominantly on Luke Skywalker’s rocky island home, the first trailer for Star Wars: Episode VIII has an ethereal, inspirational quality to it as Luke speaks(!) for the first time in over 30 years and – as far as we can tell – starts Rey off on her Jedi training.

And yet there’s something else going on as Luke tells her “It’s time for the Jedi… to end”.


Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi is in cinemas this December
