With only a couple of months left until hitting theaters, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is the talk of the internet, especially with the release of the final trailer on Monday, which premiered on ESPN during halftime of the Vikings and Bears game. But did that trailer actually answer any questions raised in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" or the teaser trailer for "The Last Jedi?" Or did this latest and final trailer before the film's release raise even more questions?

Here you will find the questions raised by the final trailer for "The Last Jedi" as well as fan theories that are floating around the internet. With it being only two months away from the premiere, it's time to brush up on the "Star Wars" rumors and gossip in preparation. May the force be with you.

'The Last Jedi' Official Trailer

Let's start off with a quick break down of the trailer released last week.

The trailer is 154 seconds long and features a much more in-depth look into the upcoming movie compared to the teaser trailer released earlier this year.

The trailer picks up where "The Force Awakens" leaves off, with Rey on the remote mountaintop with Luke after just having handed him his original lightsaber, the same one that once belonged to Luke's father Anakin Skywalker. Luke makes a statement, after witnessing a crack appear in the ground while training Rey in the ways of the force, about "raw strength" which he's only seen once before: "It didn't scare me then.

It does now."

From there we get lots of action scenes featuring battles in space, the appearance that Kylo Ren might destroy a rebel ship commanded by Leia, and then a quick scene leading viewers to wonder, or believe, that Rey will accept Kylo Ren as a teacher.

And smack in the middle of all the excitement is a roaring Chewbacca fearlessly piloting the Millennium Falcon with a new side-kick (for the love of all things holy, please don't let this new side-kick character be the next Jar Jar, we the fans thank you). But what did the trailer actually reveal, and what, if any, questions were answered from "The Force Awakens" and the teaser trailer.

Star Wars Episode VIII theories

The biggest question being asked is what role does Luke Skywalker play in the Star Wars universe now? Will he be the next Ben Kenobi and merely train Rey? With the tragic passing of Carrie Fisher, and subsequently the imminent demise of Princess Leia in "The Last Jedi," will Luke take a more active role and lead the resistance in Leia's absence? Or has Luke become a Gray Jedi?

Will he train Rey in both the light and dark sides of the force? More than likely Luke, in some fashion, will be this movie's main antagonist.

Since most of the characters from the original trilogy seem to remain unchanged, it doesn't make much sense to leave Luke the same as well. For one, the Luke Skywalker from the original trilogy never would have disappeared and vanished as he did. Especially with the threat of the first order nearly bringing the galaxy to its knees, much like the empire did.

So if Luke's character is going to be changed in some fantastical fashion, it makes sense to have him go to the dark side. Especially with the reveal of the new official movie poster.

In the movie poster, shown in the gallery above, has Luke taking the spot typically held by the antagonist of the movie. This could hint at Luke going to the dark side and becoming the villain of this new trilogy. However, Luke is not the only one to be wondered about when it comes to alliances.

There is a scene in the trailer where Rey seems to be telling Kylo Ren, "I need someone to show me my place in all this," and Kylo Ren reaching a hand out to her. Maybe this means Rey will go to the dark side and ally herself with Kylo Ren after all. One theory to back this up, as reported by Metro, asks if Rey could have been the one to destroy the Jedi temple instead of Kylo Ren. The reason Metro gives is that the raw strength displayed by Rey on the mountaintop with Luke could have happened years before at the temple, this incident could have caused Kylo Ren to become jealous of her power and to consequently turn to the dark side.

Star Wars excitement

Regardless of all these theories, it's clear that Star Wars mania has once again swept the world. Even John Boyega, who plays Finn in the new trilogy, has discussed his excitement. Meto has quoted Boyega as saying, "The reason why I am very excited for this film is Rian Johnson. The guy has found a way of respecting the old, embracing what was done with JJ, expanding it with new ideas." Rian Johnson took over as director for the film.

The Star Wars franchise has been around for nearly 40 years, with no eight movies currently out, the newest one being released this December, and at least three more in the coming years. Disney bought Lucasfilm from Star Wars creator George Lucas back in 2012 and was quick to revive the beloved franchise. "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" will air in theaters worldwide on December 15, 2017.
