DO NOT GO LOOK AT GARY FISHER'S INSTAGRAM UNLESS YOU WANT TO CRY FOREVER
Count on observant netizens to notice details from the other Star Wars films. Some saw the parallel between scenes from The Last Jedi and Revenge of the Sith. They also noted how Kylo Ren is just like his grandfather, Anakin Skywalker aka Darth Vader.
Another creature that’s worth noting is the “ice fox” which has crystallized fur. According to Comic Book, the name and origin of the creature is still unknown. But we’re betting they’ll play an important role in the film.
The movies not even out yet but people are already making their predictions. They have a good feeling that Rey might go to the dark side especially with how the trailer ended. Plus, one noted that the Rey’s poster is similar to Anakin’s Revenge of the Sith poster.
But Cinematic Capture, an account dedicated to film and game screenshots, isn’t sold on the last scene. They even put up a poll to find out if people thought it was real or an editing trick to catch our attention.
For those who have seen The Last Jedi Trailer. Do you think that last scene is real or editing trickery?
