As we get closer and closer to the release date of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the marketing for the film is starting to kick into overdrive. And now we have a brand new poster to fawn over and decipher its meaning, courtesy of Dolby Cinema.

The new poster is, as you probably guessed, in deep red color scheme, featuring all of the major players shown with prominence. But it also has a very small tease that could have some MAJOR implications to the plot of new movie. See if you can spot it in the image below.

Once again, the presence of Luke Skywalker looms large over everyone else, hinting that his role might go beyond simply being a mentor to Rey. After all, his actions make him somewhat responsible for the state of the galaxy in the new Star Wars trilogy. Did his absence lead to the rise of the First Order? Probably not, but they sure didn't help.

Rey and Kylo Ren also figure prominently in the image, applicable given their mirrored journeys are the focal point of this new saga. But we also get Leia, Finn, Poe, Chewbacca and their allies, Snoke's Praetorian Guard, Walkers assaulting Crait, and some X-Wing vs TIE Fighter action.

But as for the potential tease? It's right under Rey, on what looks to be an island mountaintop on Ahch-To. Two people appear to be in the middle of a duel; one looks like Rey, though she's wielding her trademark staff instead of Anakin Skywalker's lightsaber, which she's inherited.

And who is the person Rey is dueling? Is it Kylo Ren, who manages to track his former mentor down on Ahch-To? Or is it Luke Skywalker, clad in his robes?

Of course, Rey could be training with Luke, using her bow staff as a refusal to accept her destiny with the Force. Or she could actually have a fateful duel with the man she thought she revered, leading The Last Jedi to a dark place.

The trailers thus far have teased some sort of turn to the Dark Side for the character, though it all could be misdirection. But becoming an enemy of Luke Skywalker, either way, doesn't seem entirely out of the realm of possibility

We'll learn for sure when Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres in theaters on December 15.
