    Nope. I had a British person who saw Thor: Ragnarok confirm it for me. It's just an abridged version of the trailer.

    Film’s seemingly official synopsis gets me even more excited (from the site):

    In Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.

    I didn’t think that I could be any more excited after the trailer dropped a few weeks back, but I was wrong. Everything I hear about this film is making me more and more excited :D

    Also, wasn’t quite sure where to put this (it’s to do with placing the location of a certain trailer shot in a shot of a leaked set; this is your warning)...
    EDIT: moved to In-progress Google Doc compilation of The Last Jedi rumours/spoilers

    There have been numerous tidbits referencing the "age-old mysteries of the Force" and it has me wondering if this old unconfirmed "leak" has risen in credibility:

    Ky10rey posted this over a year ago and it was picked up by stormtrooper larry
    https://stormtrooperlarry.com/2016/06/15/star-wars-episode-viii-jedi-history-101/

    It sounded so lame that he did a follow up interview to attempt to debunk
    https://stormtrooperlarry.com/2016/06/17/exclusive-episode-8-insider-leaks/

    Could this old leak turn out to be legit? The Jedi Tree? The first force users reincarnate?

    I swear this stuff was bunk, what do you think?

    Is that new news? I swear I read that days ago? Its basically the English translation of the Japanese synopsis. Slow news day I guess. How weird :/

    I think you’re right. I knew it seemed familiar...though, I suppose, it’s worth mentioning that Japanese very, very rarely translates well directly to English.

    So I suppose it’s always good to just have the seemingly official synopsis in English on hand at the very least :p

    I probably happened upon some of this stuff last year - your vague synopsis sounds familiar - but have since forgotten, and luckily so, @thehiredgun !

    This close to the film, I’m trying to avoid stuff where I can, especially the stuff others believe could be accurate.

    I hope this doesn’t seem rude, but might I ask that you kindly spoiler tag the last structured paragraph of your post — the summary — just in case there are others like myself trying to avoid spoilers where we can? :)

    So we a back to Rey being born from a tree and she can talk to them? Oh no :( Although I did hear one rumor a very long time ago and its obviously been debunked now. But I did hear once that the title of VIII was The Genesis of The Force. Am glad I can share that with that you now knowing it was complete rubbish. The person who told me said it came from Ky10rey.

    Faaaaaaaaaaake. This is where the "No, YOU are my father." dreck that came from a long while ago. Which I will stress was fake, and will remain fake no matter how many times this gets reposted for supposedly aligning with something we learn (even though it doesn't).

    Also, I liked this story idea back when it was called The Mortis Arc. Which, curiously enough, actually does look like will be referenced in the movie based on the Ahch-To set design.

    Still waiting for a passionate debate if it's threepio or maybe Bender, including some mad paint graphics.

    Seems like it could line up with Kylo making it down to D’Qar to locate the map so that he could find Rey and Luke, considering the background in the Kylo image lines up pretty well, in terms of lighting and time of day, etc., with the final shot of D’Qar we get in TFA:
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Perhaps it lines up with this following shot of C-3PO inside what looks like the Resistance Base ln D’Qar? The Resistance would, of course, want to destroy their records if they expect the First Order to turn up.

    [​IMG]

    I would actually like to see Kylo confront C-3PO. Sure, Chewie shoots Kylo in TFA, but it’s more in retaliation because of witnessing the murder of his best friend, but I didn’t really get a sense of their history at all in the film. Seeing how Kylo would interact with C-3PO could give us some great insight into the character.
