First Words In Star Wars Episode VIII Revealed! And They Change EVERYTHING!

Ever since the (literal) cliffhanger ending of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans have been throwing out speculation basically nonstop about what was coming next in The Last Jedi.

At a Disney shareholders meeting, the very first footage was shown, including Luke’s long-awaited first words!

Thanks to many Bothans (and one leaky L.A. Times reporter who attended), we have a brief Twitter description of the footage:

That’s right! They don’t know each other! This isn’t the father/daughter relationship you’re looking for!

We actually love this as after the last movie, this one really needs to forge its own path. Another “I am your father” moment would just feel like Rogue One. Sorry, we meant fanservice.

Miller also drops some other descriptions of the footage, but we’re guessing he doesn’t normally do the movie reporting because everything else he says is totally vague:

Maybe he’s just trying to keep us spoiler free?

In any case, thanks, Dan!
