Star Wars: The Last Jedi Official International Trailer #1 Arrives!

The first international trailer for The Last Jedi has arrived! It appears to be a blend of the first teaser from Star Wars Celebration Orlando and the full trailer which debuted on October 9th. It has a couple of new shots in it. Check it out!



As we mention above it appears to be a blend of the first teaser and the full trailer which debuted October 9th, with a couple new shots added in.



We get a good look at C-3PO




We also get another shot of Rey in that cave where we saw Luke at the end of the first teaser.




There’s also this shot of BB-8 looking around a corner.


Thanks to, which is where we first saw this posted.


In addition to this a poster has been going around the internet, claimed to be the international theatrical poster. There has been NO confirmation on the legitimacy of this poster, but it is curious that it was released the same day as the international trailer above. We’ll update you on our findings about this, but in the meantime here it is:

    Rey to the Dark Side confirmed! ;p

    kylo ren arm in the poster looks wrong… bad photoshop there

  • October 30, 2017 at 10:34 pm

    There’s no way that they spoil Luke using a lightsaber on a poster. Not that is an actual spoiler but LFL/Disney have been so tight lipped about everything that I can’t believe it’s true.

    • October 30, 2017 at 11:08 pm

      There’s a glass with him holding it, too. Although, we don’t really know in what capacity.

      • October 31, 2017 at 8:48 am

        Cup he is wearing his light outfit though.

    • October 31, 2017 at 7:52 am

      I saw the same poster on the official Japan disney website though.

      • October 31, 2017 at 2:32 pm

        Oh wow.

  • October 30, 2017 at 10:36 pm

    Poster looks fake AF.

  • October 30, 2017 at 10:41 pm

    I appreciate seeing a few new shots, but the editing on this trailer is nowhere near as good as the one we got a few weeks ago. As for the poster, Luke is wielding his old lightsaber, so I think there’s a good chance now that’ll be part of the movie! Also, his placement is less ominous than it’s been in other marketing, so hopefully “dark side Luke” was a red herring all along.

  • October 30, 2017 at 11:06 pm

    There you have it! The villain’s always at the back 😉 I’d like to see a poster with a porg in the background position…

    • October 30, 2017 at 11:30 pm

      Exactly, I was going to post the same thing. Let the theories start that Rey is the villain and goes dark……

      To be honest I think the “grey” path is going to be the main direction, getting the best of both worlds. But we’ll see. Sitting on the fence i.e in the grey middle also has it’s problems. But I’m only speculating.

      • October 30, 2017 at 11:48 pm

        No dark Rey, no grey Jedi in Disney Star Wats universe. confirmed

        • October 31, 2017 at 12:36 am

          That’s because Grey Jedi are pretty dumb as a concept.

          • October 31, 2017 at 1:18 pm

            Whatever you want to call it, we have gotten a lot of hints that the Force will be explored beyond the light and the dark side.

            Most recently, in the Poe comic, there is mention of an object created using both the light and the dark side. Make of that what you will.

          • November 1, 2017 at 6:10 am

            And it may happen. And I for one would be supremely disappointed, cause it’s a stupid concept in a universe that has delineated Dark and Light as unable to coexist.

          • November 1, 2017 at 7:30 pm

            I understand where you’re coming from. However:

            “The main theme of the trilogy would be moral and philosophical problems, such as the necessity for moral choices and the wisdom needed to distinguish right from wrong, justice, confrontation, and passing on what you have learned” (Lucas in 1983 and 1989).”


            “The third [trilogy will] deal with moral and philosophical problems,” Lucas said in 1983. “In Star Wars, there is a very clear line drawn between good and evil. Eventually you have to face the fact that good and evil aren’t that clear-cut and the real issue is trying to understand the difference. The sequel is about Jedi knighthood, justice, confrontation, and passing on what you have learned.” [Worrell, Icons: Intimate Portraits, 1983]”

            Don’t have the actual sources, but these are coming from the link below:


          • November 2, 2017 at 12:02 am

            Yes. The story is about what actions are defined as good or evil. Not how a single Force user can be both good and evil and wield Dark and Light powers simultaneously. IE a Grey Jedi.

            I personally think it’s a shitty concept. But it may be where Star Wars is going.

          • November 2, 2017 at 1:02 pm

            The thing is, we don’t know if there will be more episodes after IX (I surely hope there will be).

            So again, I understand where you’re coming from. The OT in particular is a great tale of good vs evil, even though the PT starts to slip in some hints it may not be so black and white.
            (ep2: speaking of arrogance in the Jedi ranks, ep3: Padmé pondering if they’re on the right side of it all)

            I think, however, if episode IX will be the last, there has to be some resolution to this ongoing struggle. That’s why I think the concept of the Force as we know it is being broken open.

            In all aspects, this really is a new era of Star Wars. I enjoy the whole ride, though I understand not everyone is content with it. I do hope you will enjoy episode 8 either way.

          • November 4, 2017 at 6:25 am

            Well, the concept of the Force is being broken open. Not because IX will necessarily be the capstone (I really doubt it will be, my guess is there will be a X-XII) but because Lucas Film wants to have more room to maneuver with the Force.

            They’ve actively been expanding on the idea of Force Users being more than Jedi, or Sith in Rebels and also in the comics.

            Being able to escape the trappings of the PT and OT mean they can take the story to shiny new places and not always have Jedi Knights and Sith Lords being the lone Force wielders.

      • October 31, 2017 at 4:02 am

        Grey Jedi are a fan-obsession that do not exist in the films.

      • October 31, 2017 at 8:47 am

        I believe Rian said at D23 that there is no such thing as a grey Jedi?

    • October 31, 2017 at 7:11 am

      Funny you should mention that because the Japanese poster has a Porg drawn up on Chewie’s shoulder, which the American one omits!

      • October 31, 2017 at 8:46 am

        Porg Sith. I can dig it.

    • October 31, 2017 at 8:46 am

      Yeah Rey is here…Snoke is Plaguies confirmed. 🙂

  • October 30, 2017 at 11:50 pm

    Rey says “But I need someone…” instead of just”I need someone”

  • October 31, 2017 at 2:17 am

    Very nice, but all future SW writers should be banned from writing “Fulfill your destiny” ever again.

    • October 31, 2017 at 2:12 pm

      It rhymes.

    • October 31, 2017 at 9:43 pm

      i have a bad feeling about that…

      • October 31, 2017 at 11:18 pm

        I’m sure people in the SW Universe say other things besides “You know it to be true” “Search your feelings” and “I feel your “

  • October 31, 2017 at 2:49 am

    I’m gonna put out a spoilerific theory here, so don’t read if spoilers leave you feeling spoiled. (You know you’re going to read it anyway, ’cause honestly… what does this guy Jim know anyway?)

    The main thing missing in the foreign trailer is one of most revealing (I think) scenes from the U.S. trialer, and my interpretation of it is this…

    When Luke states that “This is not going to go the way you think”, he’s talking to his nephew.

    Luke does not accompany Rey back to Crait, and she’s subsequently
    captured by Snoke. Snoke extracts Luke’s location from Rey’s mind and
    dispatches the Knights of Ren to get Luke. Kylo (already leaning back towards the good side since fairly early on in the film after feeling overcome with remorse over his father and his big decision not to kill his mother) rebels against his master and heads to Ach-To to save Luke. He wipes out the Knights of Ren and asks Luke help him rescue Rey.

    That scene in the trailer is Kylo reaching his hand out to Luke, and we come full circle to Luke’s fortuitous quote up above.

    Just a thought.

    • October 31, 2017 at 3:54 am

      Interesting, I like it.

      • October 31, 2017 at 4:03 am

        Sebastian, thanks.

    • October 31, 2017 at 4:00 am

      Damn bro, I think you just nailed it with the most well-done theory-spoiler I’ve seen.

      • October 31, 2017 at 4:02 am

        I posted it just so you could feel enthusiastic about the film again. 😉

        • October 31, 2017 at 4:04 am

          Most fan-theories are so silly and far fetched but this is so well-constructed, I”m speechless — as will be the audience if this happens.

          • October 31, 2017 at 4:08 am

            Best part is… it’s the exact same plot as ‘Empire’.

            But seriously, if you follow the outfit changes and the appearance & disappearance of Kylo’s ‘Hello Sithy’ Band-Aid, you can sorta piece together the scenes in their chronological order.

    • October 31, 2017 at 4:54 am

      Why would the most powerful Jedi need help. The majority of the Jedi masters were as old or older than Luke. Everyone is assuming he is weaker because he is older.

      • October 31, 2017 at 5:06 am

        Needing help is never a sign of weakness.

        • October 31, 2017 at 5:13 am

          It is if you have limited screen time.

          I would assume a scenario occurred, similar to Dooku and Yoda where look had to make a choice to fight or save someone.

          I would prefer no Luke to a weak Luke.

          • October 31, 2017 at 5:18 am

            What if he choose not to fight over confronting (and potentially having to kill) a beloved family member?

            His greatest strengths have always been his compassion, empathy, and willingness to sacrifice.

          • October 31, 2017 at 5:23 am

            As long as we are not getting a cookie cutter old hero who doesn’t have it anymore and is just going to be used as a plot device to sacrifice himself after one last stand. Then I’m fine with anything.

          • October 31, 2017 at 5:29 am

            No, it’ll be way more profound than that, and he’s not gonna die in this film.

            Lotsa talk about lightsabers in this forum too. I think he’ll initially refuse it, and give it back to Rey on the day she comes. But after she leaves, the saber will return to him once again — this time at night in the hands of his nephew. He’ll have little choice but to embrace and utilize it.

            (and I think the green saber is history.)

          • October 31, 2017 at 5:37 am

            Or he’ll say, “keep it, I have one and ignite HIS lightsaber. The only lightsaber I will be happy to see.

            The poster of Luke on the sale barge, in black, holding his green saber, encapsulates Star Wars for me.

            After all if Kylo is redeemed, it would be poetic for him to have Anakins saber.

          • October 31, 2017 at 5:40 am

            Lightsabers are very cool, but try not to miss out on the people in the story — they’re sorta interesting as well. 😉

          • October 31, 2017 at 7:20 am


            Although, I suspect Rey will end up with Anakin’s saber. Aren’t Lucasfilm calling it “Rey’s saber” now?

          • October 31, 2017 at 2:11 pm

            Yes, it’s Luke’s until he gives it to her. People still calling it “Anakin’s” is odd bc it hasn’t been his for decades.

          • November 1, 2017 at 5:28 am

            Precisely. They aren’t going to call it “Anakin’s” — also of note in TFA, no characters ever said “Anakin” but rather “Vader.”

          • October 31, 2017 at 8:44 am

            But really …his first lightsaber in ANH and ESB are the blue ones.

    • October 31, 2017 at 5:12 am

      That is a good theory.
      What if…
      We have 2 details from Ach-to:
      If I remember well The Millenium Falcon Flying and someone else firing and destroying First Order Fighters… so some allies have arrived.
      This week I have read some suppositions about Poe and Finn in Ach-to.
      So what if?
      Poe-Finn, may be Rose go on the rescue?
      What if?
      Poe Dameron speech “…we are the spark…” is to Rey, Luke, Finn, DJ, Rose… in their way to Crait back from Ach-to.
      Who knows?

    • October 31, 2017 at 7:29 am

      Different… and not outlandish. I wouldn’t be mad if this ended up true.

    • October 31, 2017 at 12:52 pm

      Nice theory.

      The problems I see with it however are:

      1. Luke and Rey are together on Ahch-to when the KOR are dispatched there to attack them. Luke orders Rey to kill Kylo Ren, which Rey is very reluctant to do.

      Of course this depends on the reliability of the MSW leak, which are normally very accurate.

      2. The overhead shot of Kylo Ren with the stormtroopers from the trailer. This shot to me suggests this happens during the battle of Crait as Kylo Ren is about to confront his mother.

      • October 31, 2017 at 7:08 pm

        It could be that Kylo captures Rey and brings her to Snoke as one final bad deed before he smashes his helmet. Not sure.

        • October 31, 2017 at 8:27 pm

          I think Ren smashes his helmet very early on in the movie. But, him capturing Rey on Ahch-to and taking her back to Snoke sounds quite probable.

          • October 31, 2017 at 8:49 pm

            Could be that he (and the Knights) snatch up both Luke and Rey, but I’d think she’d look a bit more scuffed up from a struggle, and not looking so clean and dandy in her new Jedi-ish outfit.

            The behind -the-scenes clip of her dancing with Boyega on the Crait set kinda clues us in a bit more. Between her time on the island and her ultimate interrogation by Snoke, she makes a stop at Crait.

    • October 31, 2017 at 4:35 pm

      Woah! You’re onto something here

    • October 31, 2017 at 7:35 pm

      I don’t think you’re far off, but we know from MSW production leaks that Kylo, Rey, and Luke are all present on Ahch-to for a major set piece.

      • October 31, 2017 at 8:03 pm

        The real question is if they definitely filmed scenes together as a trio. Daisy could have filmed alone with Mark, and then she took a nap while Adam filmed his scenes. After all, it was a tight window of opportunity on the island. And if they did anything together, it could have been a dream/forceback/forceforward sorta scene, not necessarily a real interaction.

        Fun to think about though.

  • October 31, 2017 at 3:59 am

    not going to read too much into a poster, but that being said…. where is the green blade at?! 😉

    • October 31, 2017 at 4:01 am

      If we don’t get Green Blade from Luke, I hate this film.

      • October 31, 2017 at 4:45 am

        What an arbitrary condition. Whatever happened to letting a story surprise you? Your attitude is like a caricature of the entitled millennial: everything has to be exactly as you want it, or it’s garbage…

      • October 31, 2017 at 4:49 am

        Not going to hate it, but I will be pissed.

      • October 31, 2017 at 7:22 am

        Kent, seriously…. I don’t even know how to respond to you anymore. You’re just so…..

        • November 1, 2017 at 5:26 am

          My expectations are actually quite minimal — give me Luke kicking ass with a Green Lightsaber and I’m happy. If Luke is merely used to “get over” Rey and then die, then I’m royally pissed.

          • November 1, 2017 at 7:55 am

            Hi Kent, okay, thanks for engaging with me civilly. It’s a good reminder for me to do likewise with you. So, I understand that you really want to see a representation of Luke that matches what you’ve been dreaming about for a long time – and that’s cool. But can you help me, and others, understand why so many of your comments are critical, dismissive, and pessimistic about this movie without even having seen it? Can you understand why many on this site think of you as sort of a troll? I want to give you a fair chance, but it gets hard when your comments are so relentlessly negative. Can you help me, and others, understand where you’re coming from?

      • October 31, 2017 at 7:36 am

        Wait – Kent….. you’re a real person? The name and photo you’ve posted under is really you? Aren’t you meant to be doing something else, somewhere…. or something?

        • October 31, 2017 at 7:49 am

          This kent person is most likely a troll….. He/She like to hate almost everything about this film. No need to heed the troll.

      • October 31, 2017 at 2:05 pm

        That’s a dumb thing to say but I shouldn’t expect any less.

    • October 31, 2017 at 5:14 am

      How do we know that it still exists after 35 years? We see that Luke has it during the Ewok celebration. But never see him with it after he tosses it away on the Death Star and carries Vader to the Shuttle. So he must’ve picked it up and concealed it in his pants???

      Then we assume that it survived three decades and the attack on the Jedi Academy. But what if it didn’t?

      The thing could’ve been sliced up or taken by Kylo or the Knights of Ren. So there is no guarantee we see it at all.

      • October 31, 2017 at 5:27 am

        ” We see that Luke has it during the Ewok celebration. But never see him
        with it after he tosses it away on the Death Star and carries Vader to
        the Shuttle. So he must’ve picked it up and concealed it in his

        lol, i just saw a video about that the other day. i always just assumed he had it the whole time.

        but anyways, not sure that time would be a factor, i mean anakin’s blade still works like 50 years after the fact. personally though, i’m still sticking with luke not using a saber at all.

        • October 31, 2017 at 8:35 am

          Well he’s holding the blue one in this poster.

      • October 31, 2017 at 10:42 am

        I’m sure he has it in “Shattered Empire”.

      • October 31, 2017 at 10:59 am

        He’s got it at the end on his belt walking to meet Leia, before the force ghosts scene.

        It will be a shame to not have it, but its not a film breaker.

      • October 31, 2017 at 5:22 pm

        We see him in the new Battlefront story with it I believe, that’s after ROTJ.

        • October 31, 2017 at 9:14 pm

          That is a question we can’t answer.

    • October 31, 2017 at 4:01 pm

      I’m starting to think Kylo has it and tore it apart to make the crystal his own. They introduced “bleeding” the crystals as common practice for dark side users, what if Ben was so conflicted about his decisions that he didn’t do it right causing the crystal to be unstable. It would also explain the crackling and the exhaust vents.

      • October 31, 2017 at 4:51 pm

        I don’t think that is going to be the case. Is the movie going to take the time and explain lightsaber bleeding to a casual audience? Nah.

        • October 31, 2017 at 4:55 pm

          I honestly don’t think it has to. Ambiguity is sometimes a good thing if it’s done tastefully. And besides there’s an explanations already out there for anyone who cares enough.

      • October 31, 2017 at 5:26 pm

        definitely possible, though he also could have bled his own blade that i assume he had as luke’s padawan.

      • October 31, 2017 at 7:08 pm

        I keep hearing this rumor about the crystal from Vader’s saber being salvaged somehow. People are saying they’ve seen Luke wearing it around his neck. What if it’s broken and Luke has a piece and Kylo has a piece and that’s what he built his saber from, but because it’s a fragment, that’s why his is so unstable? That makes a lot of sense to me.

        • October 31, 2017 at 7:17 pm

          That’s also a really good theory. I like it.

    • October 31, 2017 at 4:32 pm

      Episode 9

    • October 31, 2017 at 5:18 pm

      That was my first reaction too, but I wouldn’t read into it too much. If they did show him with a green blade, that’d be a spoiler itself cause we would then know that he fights in the movie. If you give him a lightsaber at all, you’re kinda painting yourself in a corner. But I think that since this is an international poster they might be using the lightsaber to reinforce in people’s mind that Luke is a Jedi and is tied into the previous films. Without it he could read as just some old guy to people who are not looped in to the new movies. Having the blue blade leaves it the most ambiguous – does he use a lightsaber in the movie or is he just striking a classic ‘hero’ pose?

  • October 31, 2017 at 10:34 am

    Since when did “international” become synonymous with “Japanese”?

    • October 31, 2017 at 6:34 pm

      It’s not. That is the international trailer with Japanese titles. Other countries will have different language subtitles over that same INTERNATIONAL trailer.

  • October 31, 2017 at 10:40 am

    3-p0 is so beautifully shiny!

    • November 9, 2017 at 7:49 pm

      That was very odd in TFA, how matt and plasticky he looked. Even made the red arm seem less in your face. I’ll never sleep again till I know what went on there.

    • October 31, 2017 at 2:51 pm

      So it is clear that Rey, Luke and Kylo Ren are the protagonists and that Finn has been demoted to a supporting role at the same level as Poe. That is really disappointing !

      • November 1, 2017 at 5:25 am

        That’s EXACTLY how it should be. Luke, Rey, Kylo are the MAIN characters of this film. Not Finn and Rose LOL

  • October 31, 2017 at 3:00 pm

    I see the helmet of Vader still shows on this one. I just can’t unsee it.

  • October 31, 2017 at 9:19 pm

    Since when do international trailers get a number designation? Does this mean we’ll get another?

  • November 1, 2017 at 3:02 am
    This is awesome I just saw this and it makes me want Rey to go dark just so we can get something similar.

  • November 1, 2017 at 7:30 pm

    In Brazil the debut of the first trailler (jedi to end) at the movies , with Thor, only happened this week
