Why is there a non Boba clone? Why aren't there anymore Jedi? Luke isn't around but Han is?

Clones aged faster than a normal person. By the time of A New Hope almost all of the clones had died off and were replaced with Volunteers and draftees.

Jedi were mostly wiped out after Order 66 in Revenge of the Sith. Those that survied went into hiding.

Luke is in the trailer, he's the dude with R2. They're saving the real reveal for the movie.

Do you think the Caminoans stopped cloning after Revenge of the Sith? Because between order 66 and this is the equivalent of Luke's lifespan. If that's true, let's say that a clone's life is n/2 where n=average life of a Mandalorian, then we can assume that at the end of A New Hope the Caminoans would have had had produced another population. This seems logical because if the whole population of clones died from age, they would have to have the next series immediately ready. Having separate populations of clones ready at the half life of their previous series allows the stability of the clone army. Knowing this, either they all dropped dead after discovering Ewoks or a second populace was ready when Luke was still bragging to Ben about shooting womp rats. If that's true, then that motherfucker in the trailer is a damn mutant. Mandalorians ain't got no time to compromise their unit with dam mutants.

I don't care about the origins of the First Order troops. I wanna know about the new death star(snow planet) that popped up on 30 years.

I think the in canon reason is that Kaminoans just ran out of Jango DNA by the time the Clone Wars ended. I think I read that by the time of ANH about 5% of the storm troopers were clones. So, that mother fucker: Not a mutant.

I think in one of the Battlefront games Kamino created another clone army, but because of the new authoritarian rule they altered something in the DNA so the clones had complete loyalty to Kamino instead of the Empire. In response, the Empire sent veteran Clone Troopers (now Stormtroopers) to stamp out these new untested Clones. Once that was taken care of, Palpatine experimented with other DNA sources, but they never lived up to the original clones, so eventually they were fazed out.

But I'm not sure if the old Battlefront games are canon.

I guess, I'm second guessing that that is the canon reason. But I do know they stopped using clones.

This dude kind of touches on it.

Just nice to see a trailer that isn't a summary of the entire film.

Today's trailer is weird

Just curious, what do you mean?

Pardon the late reply, I've been trying to put my finger on exactly what gives me that vibe about the trailer. I am looking forward to it for sure, and in context of the whole movie I probably won't get the same vibe the trailer does.

I still find pink, internal glow-engined X Wings to look weird (they are very clearly red with external corona in my VHS's of the OT), and lots of stuff on screen feels foreign, but if the pacing is fine then those things really don't bother me, even if they feel alien, like the PT did. In a short trailer though, they might be contributing to my feels, although I think it's something other than that too

Sorry for vagueness, but I didn't want to leave you hanging

And yes every couple years when I feel like watching Star Wars again I watch it on VHS
