CotF Reaction Corps - The Last Jedi Trailer

October 11, 2017

It's our reaction to the glorious The Last Jedi trailer. We talk all about misdirection, redemption, porgs, crystal foxes, Leia, and MORE. 

Watch it again! 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0CbN8sfihY

And here’s the full dialogue text of The Last Jedi trailer:

Snoke: When I found you, I saw raw, untamed power. And beyond that, something truly special.

Rey: Something inside me has always been there. But now it’s awake. And I need help.

Luke: I’ve seen this raw strength only once before. It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now.

Kylo: Let the past die. Kill it if you have to. That’s the only way to become what you were meant to be.

Chewie: Raawwwarr’arrrrr!

Porg: Aieee! Aieee!

Poe: We are the spark that’ll light the fire that’ll burn the First Order down.

Finn: Come on!

BB-8: Bewow.

Luke: This is not going to go the way you think.

Snoke: Fulfill your destiny.

Rey: I need someone to show me my place in all this.
