Top 10 Questions We Have After Seeing the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Teaser

Last week saw the debut of the first teaser for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI. Much like the first footage of THE FORCE AWAKENS, this teaser has led to many more questions than answers. Fans around the world are now smacking their lips in anticipation for Rian Johnson's film and theorizing wildly about what this two minutes of footage will actually mean. Here is our ranking of the ten biggest questions we have coming out of THE LAST JEDI teaser. if you have theories or want to share the questions we didn't ask, feel free to add them in the talk backs below.

#10 - Will there be an opening crawl?

With the teaser promising action on Ach-To and picking up directly where THE FORCE AWAKENS left off, how can there possibly be an opening crawl? In all prior STAR WARS films, there has been a time lapse between episodes. ith Rian Johnson setting this film immediately after J.J. Abrams' film, what does that mean for the trademark start to all previous films in the main saga?

#9 - Where is Snoke?

In the first teaser for THE FORCE AWAKENS, we heard the deep and mysterious voice of Supreme Leader Snoke heralding a shift in the dynamic of The Force. In the opposite, THE LAST JEDI teaser has Luke and Rey discussing balance. But, despite fleeting glimpses of Captain Phasma and Kylo Ren, we see no villains in this trailer which begs the question of how much of a presence Snoke will actually have. We have been promised a more direct view of the Dark leader but just how true will that be?

#8 - What is happening on Crait?

One of the coolest moments in THE LAST JEDI trailer is the look at the new fleet of ships skimming across the surface of a planet covered in red sand. It was revealed this is the planet Crait and was once a Resistance stronghold. What exactly these ships are remains to be seen, but you can see them heading directly for what looks to be a troop of AT-AT walkers, so I would make the safe bet that these are allies of the Resistance.

#7 - Are we getting more flashbacks?

The scene above clearly looks to be a different angle to the moment in Rey's vision where she saw Kylo Ren and his fellow Knights of Ren massacre Luke's new Jedi students. Whether this will be in another vision or if Luke will recount his experience to Rey is unknown but learning more about why Luke went into seclusion is one of the biggest questions I had coming out of THE FORCE AWAKENS.

#6 - Where are the new characters?

It was not until the second trailer for THE FORCE AWAKENS that we saw the return of Han Solo so it somewhat surprising that we don't see a single new face in the teaser for THE LAST JEDI. We see Rey, Finn, Poe, BB-8, Kylo Ren and parts of Luke and Leia, but no one else. Where are the new characters played by Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern? In typical fashion, this teaser seems to be only showing scenes from the early portion of THE LAST JEDI, but I want to see who else is coming to a galaxy far, far away.

#5 - What will Leia's fate be?

Carrie Fisher's untimely death forced Lucasfilm to rethink how Princess Leia would figure into the unfilmed EPISODE IX. But, Fisher is front and center (at least from behind) in the LAST JEDI teaser. Will her fate be explained by the end of the film? How will her significant role play into the narrative of this movie?

#4 - What happened to Kylo Ren's helmet?

Two significant frames populate this teaser in regards to the villain formerly named Ben Solo. First, we see his demolished helmet on the ground. In another, we see him wielding his red lightsaber with his new scar easily visible down his cheek. The question is why Kylo Ren has decided to shirk the mask he wore in honor of Darth Vader and if that has any significance for the story of THE LAST JEDI.

#3 - What will Finn's role be?

I don't doubt for a second that John Boyega will have more to do in Episode VIII than just lie in a coma, but the teaser does not give our favorite First Order traitor much else to do. Eagle-eyed STAR WARS fans have decoded the language on Finn's bed that says he is in stable condition, but what will his injuries mean for his role in the Resistance and the saga to come?

#2 - Does this symbol represent The Grey?

The most discussed element of THE LAST JEDI teaser has to do with Luke's final words (more on that in a moment) which seems to be centered on this image. On a cursory glance, it looks like the symbol of the Jedi Order, but STAR WARS lore has long referenced a third chapter of Force followers who believe that you must accept both the Dark and Light sides of the Force. Known as The Grey, this sect could mean a massive change in what we commonly have viewed as a Sith versus Jedi battle. The true question is if that is a concept we are going to see on the big screen.

#1 - Why must the Jedi come to an end?

From the title of the film to Luke's foreboding words, it sounds like the Jedi as we know it will soon be no more. The real question we need answered is why. Mark Hamill has been quoted as saying he was originally against the direction Rian Johnson was taking Luke Skywalker and we need to find out why that is. Does Luke begin dabbling in the Dark Side? Did he run-in with Kylo Ren signal the end of days for the Jedi? What has Luke learned about the purpose of The Force in his time in seclusion? So many questions and only eight more months until we find out answers!
