DEBUNKED! The Battle of Crait Rages in Star Wars: The Last Jedi TV Spot

The 7th TV spot from Star Wars: The Last Jedi has officially premiered, but for now it’s available only in a very low quality version. Still you can see a few new scenes from the battle of Crait. Check it out. Nope, it’s a fake.



Special thanks to our friend @NickSkywalk  for sending the video.



We will update the article once a better version of the TV spot is available.





@NickSkywalk noticed that the shot with the running troopers on Crait is the same one from this Battlefront II ad released a few days ago (watch at 1:38):





That’s very strange indeed.






…And there’s a good reason that it’s strange – it’s a fake. So sayeth (er, implyeth) Pablo Hidalgo:

    Amazing how much mileage the get out from the same footage

    I’m pretty sure this is fake?

    I liked this commercial until they wasted time showing Rose.

      I liked this comment section until I read your comment.

        Why all the Rose hate? I had assumed that since she was dressed like an OT character people here would automatically love her to death.

        • November 17, 2017 at 2:44 am

          Haha. Of course we have to wait until the movie comes out but from what we’ve seen her dynamic with Finn seems interesting. I think she was quite necessary to the story since Rey and Poe both are occupied with their stuff.
          Rey & Luke
          Poe & Leia
          Finn & Rose
          Seems like a good choice in terms of character development. Rey, Poe and Finn will probably never be a thing (maybe in IX).

          • November 17, 2017 at 3:18 am

            I really don’t “hate” Rose per se, it’s just the focus should remain on LUKE and REY as much as possible in this film, and adding “wacky new tangential characters” is literally a waste of precious screentime that would be filled with better badassery.

          • November 17, 2017 at 4:10 am

            How can you say that? Have you already seen the movie?

          • November 17, 2017 at 4:15 am

            Agreed. I’m mean I don’t think Rose is going to even be that big of a character, but more so a foil for Finn going forward.

            Which I’m down for. But I will admit; it is me not really liking the character and wanting him to shine. But John Boyega is awesome.

          • November 17, 2017 at 4:31 am

            I love Finn. I think Finn is an amazing “comedic sidekick” type of character. Which is why I don’t feel he needs ANOTHER bumbley sidekick in Rose.

          • November 17, 2017 at 3:12 pm

            You’re running straight forward to what appears to be just a personal speculation. “We have enough characters” doesn’t match AT ALL with “we don’t need any new character”. Was Lando “not needed” in TESB? Indeed Luke/Han/Leia were enough to make a whole movie, but Lando has been put in a strategic role, so to be intriguing and useful at the same time. Why would it be different for Rose? And why are you so pissed off by Rose and not by DJ or Holdo? It doesn’t make any sense. So, considering the movie isn’t out yet; considering you don’t know how Rose will be used; considering you don’t know TLJ’s plot at all, stop this narcissic speach about useful or useless characters, please!

          • November 17, 2017 at 12:30 pm

            It doesn’t need very much to write a good character, even if for a small role. Poe and Hux from TFA were not central characters, but they were well shaped, and their presence didn’t distract from the main ones. Why would it be different, now?

          • November 17, 2017 at 5:56 pm

            Poe I felt was underserved in the movie and you could tell that they had wanted to kill him off. And his likability, comes off from Oscar Isaac just being a phenomenal actor.

            Domhnall Gleeson did a solid job as Hux and like Poe I felt was underserved. A part of me really wanted him to be the rival to Kylo Ren and have it be a reverse Tarkin and Vader relationship.

            Which we saw a bit in TFA. Heck, if the movie was smarter, they could have tied Starkiller base to Hux in that in spite of it being really stupid, Hux is a super patriot.That speech alone explains that aspect as hammy as it got.

            As for Rose, I don’t think she will be a minor role, as given she is with Finn, I do think she will have plenty to do. And really, I don’t think she will be distracting.

            If anything, my hope is that she will add quite a bit to Finn as I found him as a character, bland.

          • November 17, 2017 at 4:32 am

            Honestly though, I wouldn’t mind her in a spinoff movie where they need to fill
            time. But in TLJ, we have enough characters that are fundamental and
            don’t need time-waste-straight-to-action-figure tangents.

          • November 17, 2017 at 12:28 pm

            I repeat: you have not seen the movie yet. Maybe she will be organic to the plot, maybe not. You’re talking about nothing, because, very simply, the movie is not out yet.

    • November 17, 2017 at 2:09 am

      We get it. We’ve all heard you. You don’t like Rose. You don’t need to constantly reiterate it.

          Going on a mission with Finn is not a waste of time. It’s the subplot of the entire movie.

          • November 17, 2017 at 5:35 am

            Yes that’s a major waste of time when there are more important, engaging characters and storylines going on — and there’s only 2 hours and 15 min.

          • November 17, 2017 at 6:22 pm

            If it were up to you it would be 2 hours and 15 minutes of Luke Skywalker swinging his green lightsaber around. However, for the people who actually know how to tell compelling stories and develop new characters, Finn and Rose are not a waste of time. It’s a shame that you won’t even give the filmmaker the benefit of the doubt by seeing the film once before so definitively dismissing them.

          • November 17, 2017 at 6:03 pm

            But the more time they WASTE on Rose is more time without LUKE kicking BUTT with his GREEN LIGHTSABER which would KEEP this MOVIE from being the BIGGEST movie of ALL TIME.

        • November 18, 2017 at 7:21 am

          I’ll make a supercut for you with all of Rose’s scenes removed if that stops you from bashing her in the forums. How does that sound? 😛

    • November 17, 2017 at 4:56 am

      With all my respects, for me you are like the Kylo Ren of commenters.
      So the questions is…. what is the reason of Kylo Ren to hate Rose?
      I think we ll see it in the movie 😀

      • November 17, 2017 at 5:36 am

        Hahaha thank you! You do realize, I LIKE more characters than I dislike? I *LOVE* Luke, Leia, Chewie, Rey, Finn, POE, Kylo, Hux, and Snoke.

        Rose = Waste-of-screen-time-straight-to-action-figure

        • November 17, 2017 at 6:09 am

          I hated that aspects of Finn, being a comedic sidekick. Given he was a former stormtrooper and Before the Awakening; his actual backstory prior to the movie was cool. Master chief of SWs.

          I also felt like his arc was rushed from him quickly turning and then wanting to run away. And coming back for Rey. Which I just found unsatisfied. Also, I hated the liar revealed storyline. Though, I’m happy that they ditched it soon. Still, they shouldn’t have done it.

          Hence, why I am glad Finn will have something to do with Rose. Maybe, Rose will make me like Finn as a character a lot more. And her concept I find is fascinating: ordinary person drawn into Finn’s adventures.

          And that could for me, make me actually like Finn.

        • November 17, 2017 at 6:54 am

          Well, your repeated dislike for Rose, even when you have not seen her role on screen yet, makes me think it cannot be a coincidence and it has some meaning in the movie, and Kylo for some reason will hate her at the end of TLJ.

    my friend di the music to that battle front advert he said i wasn’t allowed to steal it and send it in or micky mouse would come round and castrate him

  • November 17, 2017 at 2:49 am

    Now is a good time to do a supercut trailer, theres a lot of new footage

    • November 17, 2017 at 3:20 am

      Slamming idea !

  • November 17, 2017 at 4:51 am

    Could they have used video-game footage in a spot for the movie, and vice versa?
    I think they can 🙂

    • November 17, 2017 at 5:34 am

      Yes – Rian’s graphics look a bit too artificial compared to TFA.

      • November 17, 2017 at 6:08 pm

        Huh. So…being proved a fake, does that…does that mean you actually have no fucking clue what you’re talking about? Shocked! SHOCKED I AM!

        • November 17, 2017 at 9:37 pm

          i am also shocked

        • November 18, 2017 at 7:18 am

          Kent has actually stated that TLJ looks a bit too artificial for his taste multiple times and I partially agree when comparing the trailer to TFA. After all even in SW audiences get bored of seeing desert planet after desert planet so they had to use more CGI heavy environments at one point.

  • November 17, 2017 at 4:25 pm

    Cool ad

  • November 17, 2017 at 9:37 pm

    that armor fits her so poorly, i mean really they have all sorts of money and resources to do it right lol
