New Star Wars TV spot sheds light on Luke & Rey's relationship

We’re about a month out from STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI, but the secrets of the film are still locked away for the most part. Even though we won’t have a finished puzzle until the movie comes out, every TV spot and trailer chips away at the mystery surrounding these characters, including the new TV spot above. There’s a bit in the footage that sheds light on a crucial moment from the last major trailer and gives a bit more context to the relationship of Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Luke (Mark Hamill). That sounds like a lot to take from a small TV spot, but hey, I’m digging for all the clues I can.

As you can take from it, there’s a spot in the footage where Rey is talking to Luke about Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), and resembles the appearance of the final scene in the last big trailer. In it, Rey says the line “I need someone to show me my place in all this,” followed by Ren extending his hand to her. Of course, we’re supposed to take from this that maybe Rey could be toying with the dark side, but fans were quick to point out that Rey and Ren seem to be in vastly different areas during the scene. Now we can tell that during this new scene that Rey is indeed talking to Luke. Not the most illuminating reveal, but like I said, it adds more context to how Luke and Rey’s dynamic plays out, and that Rey isn't so much toying with the dark side as she is just looking for answers, and that Luke seems hesitant about giving them to her. 

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI hits theaters December 15.
