If the much-anticipated teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was designed to hype us up for the film — and let’s be real, that’s exactly what is was designed to do — then mission accomplished. While the teaser contains a few major revelations — most notably, that Luke is apparently done with the Jedi — it’s pretty light on plot details overall and probably raises more questions than it answers. We’re sure to get a few more trailers between now and December when the film releases that will reveal more information but until then, here are the biggest questions we have after seeing this initial footage for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
What’s Up With Those Ancient Books?
It looks like The Last Jedi is going to dive deeper into ancient Jedi mythology than any previous film, with two intriguing shots pointing to Luke’s deep study of their origins. We see that Luke has a collection of old tomes, with a page in one of the books displaying the Jedi symbol, but it’s still a mystery what these books are really all about.
One popular theory is that at least one of the books is The Journal of the Whills, an important piece of Star Wars lore in the form of a chronicle of the galaxy set down by ancient, Force-sensitive beings known as The Whills. We’ve actually seen The Whills mentioned recently, with Rogue One’s Chirrut and Baze being referred to as Guardians of the Whills, so it’s possible that we could learn a great deal more about this mysterious piece of Star Wars lore in The Last Jedi. That or Luke just really likes to read Harlequin Romances.
