Star Wars: Episode VII: The Force Awakens, director Rian Johnson, and the Jedi Order have been all over the place in recent years.
While the Star Wars films were the focus of countless fan discussions, Rogue One is perhaps best known for being a fan-favorite, a story that is loosely based on the first season of the hit television series.
That’s where the similarities to the Jedi Training videos start to really come into focus.
In Rogue One, the Jedi Knights and their Master (Jedi Knight Palpatine) learn about the Jedi Code of Conduct, the philosophy behind their order, and how they are sworn to protect the galaxy from Sith.
In the footage, they’re also given instructions on how to defend themselves against the Sith, while the film’s protagonist, Luke Skywalker (Adam Driver), is seen using a lightsaber.
The videos and the trailers that accompany them have been seen by millions.
The footage was originally released as a free preview on the Force Friday Facebook page, which the group is currently working to remove.
Rogue One has been widely praised for its diverse cast and the fact that it has an interesting concept that allows it to be a “race” movie rather than just an action movie.
Rogue one has also been a success, raking in $1.2 billion at the worldwide box office and making Rian a star.
That makes it one of the highest-grossing films of all time.
The Star Wars movies have become so well-known for their diversity that the first trailer for Rogue One also includes footage of the first three Star Wars episodes.
While fans of the series and the Star Trek franchise are familiar with the concept of race, Rogue one offers a more nuanced take on the issue.
The new footage that appears in Rogue One features the Jedi’s first encounter with the Imperials, where they are attacked by a pack of Mandalorians led by an old man who is said to have been the Sith Lord.
The film’s second teaser trailer features a scene that depicts an interracial fight between Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi and his apprentice, Mace Windu (J.K. Simmons).
In the scene, Kenobi and Windu fight against a group of Mandalorian thugs.
The two Jedi eventually beat up the thugs, which is shown in the video.
“We don’t need to change a thing.
We don’t have to change the world.
We just need to adapt,” Obi-wan tells Windu.
“And you have to adapt to the way the world works.
The way we see it, we are a race, and you’re a species.
The Jedi are all of us, so we’re all just one,” he adds.
The trailer for Star Wars Rebels also features footage of an interspecies fight between a young Han Solo and a young woman called Leia Organa (Mira Luna).
In both the scene and in the teaser trailer, it’s clear that the young woman is the one in the dark, and she is in the midst of a relationship with Luke Skywalker.
But the two Jedi do not fight, and instead they are captured by the Empire.
The Empire is holding them as prisoners, and Leia is forced to marry her son, Luke, while her husband, Han, is executed.
The Rebel Alliance, which was formed during the filming of Rogue One and Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, was formed after Rebels, and its members have embraced the idea of race in their missions.
“I’m not saying that the Jedi don’t exist, but the idea that they were originally created to serve as a racial force, and that they are the only force that exists in the galaxy, is not in our culture,” Rebel leader Jyn Erso (Daisy Ridley) tells Leia.
“It’s the worst thing that could happen to the galaxy.”
Rogue One’s teaser trailer has also shown a scene where two of the Imperial officers are seen taking a stand against the Jedi.
“The Imperials are in a bad spot, they need to be strong, and they’re going to have to be bold.
If they can be strong enough to stand up to us, we will have no choice but to stand with them,” one of them says.
In this clip, the Imperial officer points to Luke Skywalker, who is now a Jedi Knight.
“They’re in a position to fight, Luke.
They have the Force,” the officer says.
“If you’re strong enough, Luke will take you down,” he continues.
“But if you’re not strong enough…you’re going down.
You’re going under.
So, do it now.
I will fight for you,” Luke says, before he takes off his mask.
The clip ends with the young Jedi in a cage with the officer, who also appears to be holding the mask off of Luke.
This scene was not used in the trailer for the Star and the Empire Strikes Back films,
