Star Wars: The Last Jedi Footage Details, Luke Skywalker Speaks!

Today, during Disney’s shareholders meeting, a footage from The Last Jedi was shown. Thanks to LA Time reported Daniel Miller we get a few tidbits about some of the brief shots shown during the event, including Luke’s first words to Rey after he accepts the lightsaber.

The footage apparently started as a joke, with Rey physically handing Luke the lightsaber before cutting away, as if that was the only thing the shareholders were going to see. But then the preview started up again, and Luke Skywalker spoke to Rey. This will be almost certainly be in the first trailer, but if you are a crazy spoiler-phobe, we’ll be kind.

According to an LA Times reporter in attendance, Luke says to Rey:

Who are you?

Fitting, right? But it’s potentially important that Luke doesn’t seem to have been expecting her or her arrival—and maybe he has as little clue about Rey’s origin as the audience, which would belie the theory that Rey was somehow present at Luke’s presumed Jedi academy, which was attacked by the Knights of Ren. (Remember, the only definite shot of young Rey in her lightsaber vision during The Force Awakens was of her being dropped off on Jakku.)

Here are a few more details:



Describing what is probably just a few seconds of footage without context is difficult, so this is probably the most detail we’re going to get for now

 “Who are you?” indeed. Expect to see the first trailer for The Last Jedi next month at Star Wars Celebration.

Bob Iger, Walt Disney Co.’s chairman and chief executive, also took a moment to remember original “Star Wars” cast member Carrie Fisher, who died last year.

“Carrie Fisher has been an iconic part in this franchise from the very beginning,” he said. “We all miss her. She has great talent and wit. We’re proud that this movie coming up is part of her legacy.”

Iger described “The Last Jedi” as “a perfect chapter in the iconic Skywalker family drama.” So all you “Who’s Rey’s father?” conspiracy theorists, consider your flame officially fanned.
