The Last Jedi Teaser

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer left me cold.

It’s pretty. It’s well-made. It’s nice to see Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker. It’s nice to see Rey swinging a lightsaber.

But there’s no emotion to it. Nothing hooked me. No image made me go, “I have to see that!”

If you loved it, go on loving it. If it made you cry, go on crying. And I’ll be glad to know that the teaser did something for someone.

I only wish it did something for me.
