Star Wars The Last Jedi

Scenes from the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer are certainly toying with our emotions. The cheeky editing hints at an interesting, unexpected plot point, which ultimately leaves us with a burning question:

"Will Rey turn to the dark side?"

At the beginning of the trailer, we hear Supreme Leader Snoke speak as clips of Kylo Ren play, "When I found you, I saw raw, untamed power. And beyond that, something truly special."

The editing indicates he may be referring to Kylo Ren, but there is also the possibility he is referring to Rey; especially when there is another scene that reveals her being tortured by him.

This theory is further fueled by the similar sentiments of a scared-looking Luke Skywalker: "I've seen this raw strength only once before; it didn't scare me enough then. It does now."

The trailer ends with Kylo Ren seemingly extending a hand to Rey after she says she wants to find her place in all of this.

It may be just a case of clever editing, but it would be very interesting if the protagonist we fell in love with in The Force Awakens becomes a Sith in the next film.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres in the Philippines on December 15.
