Details of the Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser trailer have been 'leaked'


If there’s anything Star Wars fans like more than actually watching one of the films (not Episodes I-III, obviously) it’s hearing gossip about the next film. And it appears some of the juiciest of gossip has been leaked online after a 4chan user described, shot-by-shot, what may be the film’s first teaser trailer.

While the latest in the series, Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, isn’t due for release until December 15th, 2017, that hasn’t stopped fans from scrabbling around for any nuggets of information that happen to be floating like space dust across the internet. And with the film’s first teaser trailer due for release over the next few months – possibly during April’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando – speculation has gone off like a faulty blaster.

The latest rumours, which came in the form of a post by a 4chan user, appear to reveal how the trailer will be shot, who appears and even what music will be used. And while the ‘details’ must be taken with a pinch of salt, to add further intrigue, the 4chan post has since been deleted. You can see a screengrab here.

According to the leak, the teaser begins with a sweating Finn “waking up from a nightmare/coma” before Poe Dameron appears and exclaims: “They’re here.”

A man in black, thought to be the character played by Benicio del Toro, then appears and fires on what the 4chan user says could be a “procession of mourners” in a city. As he does, a shocked Poe, Finn, a new character played by Kelly Marie Tran (actor John Boyega has previously referred to Tran as “the new lead”) and BB-8 flicker into shot.

Characters including evil Captain Phasma, General Hux and uber-baddie Snoke are all said to make an appearance but it seems Rey, Luke and Kylo Ren miss out this time around. A lightsabre does appear as Phasma appears to battle its owner but, according to the leak, whoever is holding it is out of shot.

Finn is said to feature in the trailer

Further intrigue has been added with an apparently brief exchange between Hux and Snoke as they discuss someone being ‘barely alive’ – a reference to Luke or Kylo Ren? – before Snoke adds “it’s time for a family reunion.”

The trailer will apparently end with Luke’s voice saying: “Everything will die with us.”

The next film is headed up by Looper director Rian Johnson and stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Laura Dern, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Gwendoline Christie, and Benicio del Toro – who may or may not be playing a baddie.
