Warning: Contains a spoiler for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

All eyes are on Daisy Ridley's Rey as Star Wars: The Last Jedi approaches. What will the film reveal about her past? And how will her time training with Luke Skywalker affect her future?

The latest TV spot has revealed one thing – she will be coming into possession of a new lightsaber.

...Kylo Ren's lightsaber.

Despite looking as though Rey might be fighting alongside Supreme Leader Snoke's Praetorian Guard after she grabs Kylo's lightsaber with the Force, a leaked, widescreen version of the teaser shows the warrior on her right turning to attack her.

So what's going on here? Is she fighting against Kylo Ren? Teaming up with him against Snoke, perhaps? Or is this more evidence that the mysterious young woman will turn to the dark side in Rian Johnson's movie?

Previous trailers have shown Rey training with Luke Skywalker's original blue lightsaber (the one that once belonged to Anakin Skywalker) after she finally accepted it at the end of The Force Awakens.

Kylo's crossguard lightsaber – which is based on an ancient design – is the red colour typical of Sith and other dark side Force users.

Previous trailers have seemed to be deliberately trying to mislead us as to Rey's fate in the movie, but all will become clear next week.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released on December 14 in the UK and December 15 in the US.
