The new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer is all about Porgs

I mean, okay, it’s only the one shot and I think it’s  the same one from the previous trailer, but everything else is so ambiguous and disconcerting anyway that the Porg is the only thing we can believe in.

There’s a lot of stuff going on in this trailer, but as before, I’ve no doubt there’s also a lot of clever editing to dial up the hype-o-tron ahead of the movie’s launch next month. “This is not going to go the way you think,” says Luke Skywalker as the scene cuts and Rey appears to threaten him with a lightsaber, and he’s almost definitely right about that. Or maybe that’s when she reveals that “No, I am your mother”. Or not. Probably not.

Movie’s out on 15 December.
