The first teaser trailer for the upcoming 8th installment of the beloved Star Wars franchise premiered on Friday. The 2 minute long trailer shows quick glimpses of some of our favorite characters both old and new. The preview is light on plot points, obviously, because we still have a long way to go before the movie premieres. Some diehard fans have noticed that LucasFilm has slipped some sneaky audio fragments into the trailer. "Listen closely to audio during those shots of Rey reaching out with the Force and you’ll hear plenty of interesting things," Eric Goldman, the editor of IGN, tweeted out after the trailer dropped.

That wasn't the only sneaky audio clip in the trailer, though. There's another of a shot of Kylo Ren's destroyed helmet. It's clear that the words "dark side" are said and there's currently a heated debated taking place on Twitter about who said these words. While one option is Obi-Wan speaking from the original trilogy, describing how Darth Vader was "seduced by the dark side."
Sounds like it could be Obi-Wan’s “Seduced by the Dark Side.” (“dark side" is the final part of it for sure). https://t.co/E40MRC0hvX— Eric Goldman (@TheEricGoldman) April 14, 2017
Others, however, believe the voice is Yoda when he says "consumed by the dark side." Either way, we're even more intrigued about The Last Jedi now. We need to know more!!!!
Alright, I need a consensus here! Who hears Obi-Wan’s “Seduced by the Dark Side” vs. Yoda’s “Consumed by the Dark Side”? #TheLastJedi— Eric Goldman (@TheEricGoldman) April 14, 2017
