The Last Knight is the final film in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars trilogy and the fifth installment in the saga, so it’s no surprise that the first teaser trailer for the film, which will be released on Tuesday, has some pretty big expectations.
And even though it looks like a lot of new characters and events are being teased, there’s one thing that hasn’t been announced yet.
There will be no new scenes for The Last Hunt.
Abrams says this was a difficult decision, as it could have been great for the series, but he was also worried that people would lose interest if he had just told them what they wanted to hear.
“I wanted to let people know what’s coming in the film,” Abrams told reporters at Star Wars Celebration on Tuesday.
“It was an important decision to make, and I think it’s a very big thing for The Force Awakens.
But I think the more people who watch the film than what we have, the better.”
Abrams added that the film is still in production, and that it’s been “very exciting” to see what people have made of it.
“We’ve been very excited to share this new trailer with you guys,” he said.
“As you can see, we’ve taken our time in making this trailer, but there’s still a lot to be revealed.
And we think it will be one of the best trailers you’ll see this year.
So we’re still working hard on getting it out there and we’re going to share it when we can.”
Abrams also hinted at the movie’s ending.
“The last thing I would say is we’re gonna see an ending that is very sad and very sweet,” he teased.
“But it’s definitely going to be bittersweet.”
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Abrams said the movie will be about the loss of a loved one, but the ending isn’t certain.
“There are a lot, a lot more things in The Last Dance than there are in the last film,” he told the magazine.
“For me, the last dance is an allegory of the loss and the loss is so much bigger than any individual person.
It’s a symbol of the larger world that we live in.
And so for me, I think this is a big, big movie, and one of my favorite movies.
But it’s something I’ll have to explore a little bit more in the future.”
Abrams said that The Last Dragon will be a big part of the story, but only in the first half of the film.
“When we get to the end of The Last Dawn, you’re going through the last two days of your life,” he explained.
“And there’s a big thing that happened to you, and it’s the last day of your existence.
And that’s the end.”
