Scene description of “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” trailer has leaked online. The video will reportedly once again focus on the new characters, and the fans may get to see very little of Luke Skywalker. It is expected to be released in Orlando in April during the Celebrations event.

The following article contains possible details about the trailer that is yet to be released. Fans who don’t wish to know these details before watching the video are advised to stop reading.

In the first video [see below] Mike Zeroh confirms that the trailer is ready. Director Rian Johnson and his team have put together a video for the fans to see, but that won’t happen for another two months. But, the fact that it is ready may give the fans something to cheer about.

In the second video [see below] Mike reads through a leaked scene description of the trailer that was posted on 4Chan. Readers are advised to take the details about the trailer with a grain of salt, as it can’t be verified at this point of time. The post, however, has since been deleted.

According to the post, the first “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” trailer will begin just as the one for “The Force Awakens” began- with Finn (John Boyega). The former Stormtrooper was hurt badly towards the end of the J.J. Abrams film.

The trailer reportedly begins with Finn waking up from a “nightmare/coma.” The character is said to be panting and sweating. The scene is from a medical bay. The next shot is that of Resistance pilot Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) rushing into a room on a ship and saying something like “they’re here.”  

The next few scenes are in quick succession. There is a scene of a procession of mourners dressed in black, and there is an attack by a cloaked person using a blaster. Mike points out that there were a lot of extras dressed in black during the filming at Dubrovnik.

In the next scene Poe, Finn and Kelly Marie Tran’s character are seen wearing First Order looking clothing and they react to something. The droid BB-8 is with them in this scene. Next there is Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie) commanding a battalion of Stormtroopers, and she shouts “find them.”

Stormtroopers are seen firing on a large group of civilians. There is chaos in the city. The screen then goes black, and Leia (Carrie Fisher) says “their shadow is growing.” Then Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis) steps out of the shadow, and this is apparently not CGI, but practical effects.

Snoke is said to be about eight feet tall, and he towers over General Hux (Domhnall Gleeson) in a dark room. The leader of the First Order asks the general “Is he alive,” to which Hux replies with something along the lines of “barely.” “Good. The time has come for a family reunion,” Snoke says.

The music up until now is dark, and it becomes upbeat from here. Finn bursts into a meeting between Leia and her advisers, and screams “they’re back.” Leia isn’t surprised. The next shot is that of the Millennium Falcon flying out into the sky from under the waves of a sea. A lot of TIE fighters swarm in space.

A Stormtrooper comes running from an alley, and his fellow soldiers are scared and they follow him. They run into Captain Phasma and they say “It’s the Jedi.” Everyone runs away, except Phasma. There is a sound of the lightsaber igniting, and a blue flash across Phasma’s helmet.

Finally the fans get to hear Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) say “everything will die with us.” The fans, however do not see the character or Rey (Daisy Ridley) in the “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” trailer.
