New ‘Last Jedi’ Toys Reveal Potential Snoke and Kylo Ren ‘Episode 8’ Dialogue
We’re just a couple weeks away from Force Friday when a whole slew of new Star Wars items drop, along with the dollars in your bank account. But beyond new toys and collectibles, that also means we might get some early hints for The Last Jedi.
Late last week, Hasbro dropped a TV spot for a new Star Wars toy, the “Force Link Band,” a bracelet that plays dialogue and sound effects with corresponding action figures. (Why the action figures themselves don’t play sounds and you need this additional bracelet to do so makes no sense to me, but I don’t buy toys so don’t ask me!) But the most exciting part about this relatively uneventful commercial is the reveal of a new bit of dialogue by Adam Driver‘s Kylo Ren in The Last Jedi. The ad shows the character (not in Driver’s voice, of course) saying, “The darkness guides me.” There’s more, though.
As Star Wars News Net pointed out (h/t ComicBook.com), a leaked commercial for the box set of Hasbro’s new BB-8 2-in-1 Mega Playset reveals another piece of Kylo dialogue, plus the back of the box includes two new phrases by Supreme Leader Snoke. Here are the phrases from the ad and box:
Kylo Ren: “I know what I have to do.”
Snoke: “I have been expecting you.”
Snoke: “The Resistance is doomed…”
We of course don’t know if these are official lines from The Last Jedi, but based on that first commercial, the “Force Link” supposedly plays “real movie phrases.” The dialogue isn’t all that surprising, but gives us an idea of what to expect from Andy Serkis‘ villain in the new movie.
A few weeks ago we got out first look at Snoke’s new team of personal bodyguards, the Praetorian Guard, an update on the Imperial Guards with a samurai-twist. Stay tuned for more potential reveals when Force Friday arrives on September 1, and when Kylo Ren and Snoke meet face-to-face when The Last Jedi opens December 15.
