State of the Empire Episode 37: Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer – Recap and Insights

on October 10, 2017, 7:58am

To keep tabs on the ever-growing pop culture zeitgeist that is Star Wars, we’ve partnered up with Nerdy Show to bring you State of the Empire. Led by Art Director Cap Blackard, the series speculates on the future of the franchise and looks for news in Alderaan places. To catch up on episodes, click here.

The final theatrical trailer for The Last Jedi is here — and we are overwhelmed. Join us as we unpack all that we know — or think we know — about the forthcoming Star Wars sequel. Unlike The Force Awakens, this film still has us grasping at straws for determining story beats and gleaning insight into character arcs. However, between this and the behind-the-scenes featurette, we’re beginning to see the big picture. Rumors have been confirmed and the ominous conflicts between light, dark, and (most importantly) grey sides of The Force have taken shape.

What’s the F8 of Tr8tor? Who’s the MVP of new cuteness -BB-H8 or the porgs? Will Santa Luke save Christmas? Where does The First Order get all those wonderful toys? We’ve got questions, and in some cases we’ve actually got answers.

Intercept our compete transmission below, and keep the discussion going over on our Star Wars Spoilers Facebook group!
