“Tempt”: New TLJ spot seems to be changing things up!

A new TV spot from the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi features previously unseen footage and lines from Rey and Luke!!

It seems that many of us may have been totally wrong in our predictions for where Rey, Luke, and all our other heroes are headed, as well as where the Force itself is pointing them!!

In this brand-new TV spot, we hear Rey repeat a line we all probably have permanently imprinted on our brains by now, as Luke asks her, “What do you see?” But this time, we hear a slightly different answer from the hopeful young student of the Force…

“Light… Darkness…. and…. something Else….” she breathes.

This seems to give a very different implication than what many fans predicted, that Rey would discover and gain the ability to channel the energy of the Force in a way many fans seem to theorize is only possible through the ultimate balance of both Light and Darkness. To be honest, I’ve always had problems with this theory myself, primarily because of what it does to the overall philosophy of the Jedi, as well as other conflicts to the way in which we’ve always understood the Force to work in canon.

But now, it seems something slightly different is at play…. and the most concerning part of it all is another new line from this spot…

“It’s calling me!” Rey says in an almost pleading tone, and her voice betrays that something is happening deep within her being, something that seems to be tearing her apart. This is all immediately followed by Luke’s commands to “Resist it!”, and finally him screaming her name at her, seemingly in desperation, trying to break her free from the hold of whatever is trying to suck her irretrievably into its grasp.

What could it all mean??! I know I’m intrigued, and simply can not wait for this movie to come and our answers with it!

What do you all think of this new spot and what its implications could mean for Rey, Luke, and the future of the Jedi Order? Let me know in the comments below, I always love discussing these things with you!!

    1. I know!! We discussed where it all might be heading a little in a podcast I recorded yesterday, and we got off into some ways it might tie-in to Rebels. =D
      Did you hear that the official name for the ice foxes has been announced?! Apparently they’re called “vulptices” (singular being “vulptex”). 😀

      1. Oh, and BTW, I just downloaded GIMP today! Planning to do some work to update my artwork a bit once I get it all figured out; definitely different than what I’m used to with Paint! 😀

        1. Oiiii, Rebels tie-ins. . . I’ll have to go find that. . . xD AII HAD NO IDEA THANKIESSS!!! It kinda suits them really — a hard sounding name for crystal creatures. . . YAY! Hehe, it’s a bit complicated at first. . . I may or may not have only *just* finished my first complete freehand art on it. . . if you need any tips or anything I’d be glad to help out!

          1. Lol, it took me forever to figure out the “free select” tool. But I’ve got it now!! XD
            I’m trying to figure out how I should change this up… when you look up the podcast on iTunes right now, the art that shows up is super cruddy-looking. If you’re subscribed, or if you select an episode to listen to, the artwork for that is much better, but I still want to update it some, as I just stuck it in there for until I finished up a better version. I’m using the same base-images for them, but I’m trying to figure out what I would add to it to make it catch the eye better….

            1. Oh, and, just curious, but, were you ever able to do any work on that word-logo-thing we talked about? If you can’t do it, that’s fine, but I was gonna include it in the new art if you were able to finish it. 🙂

            2. Hehe, I still have trouble with that one xD Er, I be a small bit confused; you mean the one I did, right? It’s showing up wrong? If so I can find a larger version and upload it, would that perhaps help? And yes, I’m actually working on it now! 😀

              1. Now I be confuzled…. The one you did of the actual Elven Padawan is working great; I was asking about the one that we talked about, where you would “decorate” the words…. I’m afraid I’m not making a lot of sense…. 😐

                1. Umm…. let me think…. I’m awful at colors like this….
                  I’m thinking probably a solid color (maybe black?) with the embellishments in their respective colors…
