TotL – My 5 Favorite Moments from THE LAST JEDI Trailer
They finally got me to watch some Monday Night Football. It took a new Star Wars trailer to do it, but I did it. Yes, the Last Jedi trailer is finally here in all its space-faring glory, and the Internet cracked in half. Lots of views on Youtube, and plenty more to come in the month until the release. I’ve combed through the trailer, found my absolute favorite parts, grabbed some screenshots, and tossed them in this listicle we call the Top o’ the Lot, or TotL (pronounced “Total” by the kids). It’s all very meta. So, without further ado, upgrades, band-aids, and a whole lot of fun, in Outright Geekery’s Top o’ the Lot: My 5 Favorite Moments from THE LAST JEDI Trailer.
Honorable Mention: Sith Band-Aid or Not?
Find this guy a Bacta Tank! Oh, I guess he found one. This was just glaring to me. One scene early with a big black band-aid on Kylo Ren’s face, and then one without it. How much time goes by? Where is your medical droid? Everything points to that no band-aid scene being closer to the end of the movie, which I think gives a whole lot away. Yes, that big, black band-aid is a huge spoiler!
5. Burning Down the House!
This is obviously a flashback, and I couldn’t be happier about it. No, I’m not a sick bastard who likes to see people’s dreams shattered in a horrible calamity. I’m not a monster. But we all knew that something happened to push Luke all the way to that Hawaii planet where he has his first pick at the hottest Porg (they taste like chicken), but it looks like we may actually see some of those tragic moments that define his life. I really want to know about that stuff.
4. At-At 2.0
Ah, upgrades! One of the coolest parts about Star Wars for me is the evolution (or devolution in the prequels) of the tech. Everything is so shiny! It’s new, yes, but that feel of the old is still intact and the At-At battalion alone is best example of this from the trailer. These things are ominous and scary. They still don’t look immune to a long piece of rope, though, but just ignore that.
3. Penguins Flying Spaceships
Alright, I know Han Solo is dead, but did they have to replace him with a penguin? Everyone is in love with Porgs is seems, but I truly believe that Luke was eating those things. Ok, maybe not, but I bet they are delicious.
2. Luke’s Getting to Old for This Shit
Just the perfect “I’m getting to old for this shit!” look, Luke is just a bit put off by Rey’s show of power. She’s a tital badass! This actually fixes some of her more out-of-place moments in the last film, but does it even matter if Luke isn’t going to train her up the right way? Yeah, I’m not sure it does.
1. That F*&^ing Fight!
The fight between Finn and Chromia may just be the coolest damn thing teased in this trailer. If it’s as cool as they could make it this fight may be worth the price of admission alone. It’s like quitting your job, going to work for the competition, and then getting to kick you old boss’s ass! I have that dream all the time.
See a mistake? Disagree with the choices? Let us know what you thing!
