On Monday we got a brand new full length Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer, and while my inner fanboy was ecstatic to see new footage from the film with the hopes of being able to realize its plot a bit more, my practical side walked away feeling that it may have spoiled more than a few major moments. We’ve already broke the trailer down in video form, and on our Star Wars Time Show podcast, so I figured it would’t hurt to dedicate a video breakdown of the trailer’s most shocking moments, which I consider to be spoilers.
Now, I know full well that the trailer was more than likely edited in a way to make certain scenes appear to happen in order when in reality they don’t, as well as making certain dialogue appear to be spoken to characters that it may not be spoken to in the final edit. I totally get that, and Rian Johnson has confirmed that he made sure that the most shocking moments won’t be teased at all before the final film releases. With that being said though, I do feel that the way these spoiler moments were woven into the trailer do come off as potential massive reveals, so that’s how I approached the video breakdown below.
This goes without saying that this video is laden with spoilers, I mean the whole post is dedicated to The Last Jedi spoilers, so please don’t watch unless you’ve already seen the new trailer. Head on down below to see which trailer scenes I considered to be full of spoilers.
