‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ New Trailer May Have Answered This 1 Lingering Question

The international trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has just been released. It has a lot in common with the main trailer released on Oct. 9, but there are a few slight differences. Several new shots and some different editing make it stand out from the version fans have already watched dozens of times by now.

Surprisingly, due to an editing decision, the international trailer may have also answered a question that fans have been debating for the past few weeks ever since the original trailer was released. Here’s a look at how the new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer addresses a lingering fan question.

In the previous trailer, Luke talks about having seen ‘raw strength’

Fans will recall that in the main trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Luke Skywalker says, “I’ve seen this raw strength only once before. It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now.” This comes after a scene in which Rey cracks the ground while training on Ahch-To, so it communicates the idea that Luke is actually scared of Rey because she is so powerful and does not want to train her.

But when Luke makes reference to seeing raw strength “once before,” who is he talking about, exactly? In the trailer itself, he doesn’t specify, and this is something fans have been in disagreement about.
