Rumor: Description Of Star Wars: The Last Jedi Footage Shown At Mexican Event Revealed?

    As you may already know, there was recently a ten-minute preview of Star Wars: The Last Jedi at a press event in Mexico - but so far, no fully-credible description of what was shown has surfaced. But now, it appears as though that has changed, as a Mexican Youtube film channel who was at the press event has revealed a description of the footage shown.







    POTENTIAL SPOILERS!!!





    There's just one catch - the account described is in Spanish, meaning that unless you're bilingual, you won't be able to hear the finer details. This Youtube channel is definitely legit. They had many famous actors on their show in the past. The video can be seen below:









    But there's also an upside. Thanks to the efforts of an Argentinian Redditor, those of us who say 'Yo no hablo Español' can understand the gist of what she was talking about:

    There was previously a description that described a similar sequence of events, but the scene in question came with a clear contradiction - it stated that Poe's X-wing is destroyed in the opening battle. We know that this isn't the case because we see him flying the black X-wing with D'Qar in the background, scenes that were presumably included as a part of this preview.



    In any case, the fact that we start the movie off with a battle doesn't surprise me too much - Star Wars movies have a tendency to open in space (with the exception of The Force Awakens, which begins with the viewpoint on the planet of Jakku looking *directly overhead* to space), and it only makes sense that they would want to keep the audience waiting a little longer to hear what Luke's first onscreen words in over 30 years are. Besides, resolving a two-year cliffhanger is not something you just give away in a preview about a month ahead of the movie's release!

    Supposedly this is what was seen

    Shows a space battle and is mostly centered around Poe and BB-8, and how Poe is trying to destroy "a gun inside of a big ship". She also says that Hux appeared in the scene and that there is a humorous bit with him (which she claims "felt like a Marvel movie" although she didn't describe the moment or specify why, and still said the humor throughout the scene was very funny). Then she mentioned that there's a new character who wasn't in the previous movie whose life is threteaned at one point in the footage shown and that the movie inmediatly makes you care about said character (most likely referring to Rose). She ended saying that "the destruction in the scene was massive" and that the special effects were great, and at the end started talking about something else but stopped because she didn't want to spoil the rest of the scene, so there's more going on in the scene.

    Supposedly that character is Paige Tico. Rose's sister

    Sounds like a great opening, starting with a Space battle. Great, despite that Marvel-thing. Whatever that's supposed to mean. (r2-d2)

    So much for the ESB redux comparisons.

    Because one person says there a joke that sounded like it was from a marvel movie? What is Marvel humour anyway? I've heard someone say that all the red in the marketing and movie trailer made him feel like it was a marvel movie? As such, even more ridiculous. Just don't read to much in such kind of nonsense

    Well even though the movie will be completely different from ESB, there will always be people who will make that comparison, even though they'd be trying to force a square peg through a round hole if they have to.

    I knew it wouldn't start exactly with Rey and Luke on Ach-to, RJ emphasized this in the beginning but I guess after editing the film for weeks, he took a more appropriate opening ...
