Yesterday morning Rian Johnson replied to someone on Twitter worried about avoiding spoilers. If you’ve actually left your house any time after Force Friday you’ve probably seen as much as the next trailer will show, but spoiler-phobes are still worried.
He explained in his Tweet that if someone wants to go into The Last Jedi without seeing ANY new footage, then they shouldn’t watch the new trailer. It’s simple logic. The only way to go into a movie completely clean without seeing ANYTHING from it is to not watch the trailer:
I a legitimately torn. If you want to come in clean, absolutely avoid it.
