For those of you not familiar with West Side Story, the musical is a modernized version of Romeo and Juliet. In this scene, our protagonist – Tony – has a premonition that his life is about to be changed, and he feels euphoric about this. Knowing the source material, Tony will soon be doomed because of the love affair he’s about to get involved with. It’s ironic. He could let others know that changes were coming, but he couldn’t anticipate these changes himself…
But more importantly, Johnson’s usage of said scene tells us that we’re all really after – that The Last Jedi will feature a musical number foreshadowing the nature of the a character’s romantic arc fit in somewhere in the movie’s two-and-a-half-hour running time. Oh, and also that it’s looking incredibly likely that the trailer and ticket sales will hit on Monday, as anticipated.
Johnson’s got West Side Story on the brain, as he just shared another song from the musical to hype up tonight’s Monday Night Football game and the unveiling of the trailer:
