Happy Fandom Friday everyone! Here is a new Star Wars trailer to celebrate!
This trailer has me more excited than the last one because we actually get to have a better sense of Rey in this footage. The first trailer seemed to be more about Kilo Ren and Finn which makes sense considering Finn is the only character confirmed to be force sensitive and Kilo Ren is the new baddie. Rey was heavily featured, but more as a side character to Finn’s journey. In the international trailer, we get to hear Rey talk more and be more a part of the action.
Some interesting observations:
Rey says she is waiting for her family.
BB8 possibly is not Rey’s droid. I think BB8 belongs to Finn and Rey found it while scavenging. Finn crashes on Jakku and Rey rescues him?
Even though Finn and Rey introduce themselves to one another, the last names still are unknown leading to lots of speculation as to who their families are. This one is my favorite.
I don’t know whose body Rey is crying over and I don’t want to know until I see the movie. I am actively avoiding any speculation with the exception of Mr. Sunday Movies video about Star Wars Jackets. Mr. Sunday Movies is awesome and I can’t not watch his videos. #StarWarsJacketSpeculation
Chewy blows something up! Please don’t let it be the Millennium Falcon.
Rey and Kilo Ren confront one another at some point.
“Hope is not lost today, it is found,” almost as awesome as, “the Force is calling you, just let it in” but not quite. I find it interesting that both of those quotes are being said when Rey is on screen.
