A new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi was released during Game 7 of the World Series last night.
It starts with a nostalgia-inducing shot of a grey-bearded Luke Skywalker walking into the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.

Then there’s a voiceover from Kylo Ren, the villain of the third trilogy, saying “let the past die.”

The previous film in the series, The Force Awakens, was practically a remake of the original Star Wars, culminating with the heroes destroying the Death Star—sorry, I mean the Starkiller Base.
Trailers for the new film suggest that it will continue this tradition by closely mirroring the story arc of The Empire Strikes Back. Rey travels to a distant planet to receive Jedi training from Master Luke Skywalker, just as Luke once traveled to Dagobah to train with Master Yoda. Last month’s trailer had a hint that Kylo Ren may try to recruit Rey to the dark side, just as Darth Vader once tried to turn Luke.
