The INSIDER Summary:
- There are three distinct whispers that can be heard in “The Last Jedi” trailer if you listen closely.
- They’re older lines of dialogue from Princess Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Yoda.
- Tune into the trailer starting at the 45-second mark to hear them.
If you’ve watched the trailer for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” you may want to go back and watch it again. You may missed a series of subtle whispers played beneath the composer John Williams’ score.
You’ll want to pay attention starting 45 seconds into the trailer, right after Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) asks Rey (Daisy Ridley) what she sees while she’s presumably training with him.
It’s tough to hear, but you can distinctly make out the lines of three iconic characters from the “Star Wars” franchise — Leia, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Yoda — as Rey answers “light,” “darkness,” and “balance.”
In case you missed them, here they are:
When Leia pops up on screen you can hear her say “Help me Obi-Wan” at 47 seconds into the trailer. It’s a piece of dialogue from 1977’s “Star Wars” when her hologram figure tells Luke Skywalker, “Help me Obi Wan, you’re my only hope.”
The next line comes as the camera zooms in on Kylo Ren’s shattered mask at 53 seconds. An older Obi-Wan Kenobi can be heard saying, “seduced by the dark side” before Rey says, “darkness.”
The snippet is a reference to when Kenobi told Luke Skywalker about how Vader went from being one of his greatest allies to one of the most feared men in all the galaxy. Kylo Ren, his grandson, appears to be following in Vader’s footsteps so far.
Finally, Yoda can be distinctly heard saying, “Train you will … to be a Jedi” at 59 seconds right as Rey says “balance.” A series of books come into view, one which prominently has a Jedi Order symbol inside. It looks like Rey is reading from the text.
It’s presumed Luke will teach Rey in the ways of the Force, and, from the title of the film, you may guess she’s the titular last Jedi of the movie. However, things get a little more hazy when Luke says that it’s clear the Jedi have to end.
It’s not the first time Rey has heard a series of whispers. She was previously bombarded by a rush of whispers during a vision sequence in “The Force Awakens” when she touched Luke Skywalker’s original lightsaber.
Here’s the full dialogue from that part of the trailer:
Leia: “Help me Obi-Wan”
Obi-Wan Kenobi: “Seduced by the dark side” as Vader is heard breathing.
Yoda: “Train you will … to be a Jedi”
“The Last Jedi” is in theaters December 15.
