Yesterday, during day 2 of the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, The Last Jedi trailer was released alongside a teaser poster that features Luke, Kylo and Rey.

The trailer is awesome and as a fan, I started to lose my mind.  I watched it about fifty times already but I digress.  The last scene of the trailer shows Luke standing outside a cave where he states, “I only know one truth…it’s time for the Jedi to end”.  It’s unclear who he is talking to, it could be Rey or possibly Obi-wan, Yoda, or even Anakin.  Mark Hamill told Fandango:

“Well he’s a completely different person.  He had an arc and I think Carrie and Harrison admitted their characters were pretty much the same throughout, but Luke was always changing.  Now we have this 30 year gap between the films, so a lot of it is conjecture.  It’s not specifically my story – Rey is now the protagonist.”
It seems at this point Luke doesn’t consider himself a Jedi anymore, which would explain his exile.  The Jedi are protectors of peace and much like Master Yoda and Obi-Wan, Luke has given up on his mission to uphold peace in the galaxy. We know that Luke is training Rey, that much is shown in the trailer. I think we can assume it is in the ways of the light side of the force; to become a Jedi.  The last Jedi.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in theaters December 15!
