For months, fans have been waiting with baited breath for any sort of footage of this December’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but LucasFilm had decided to hold back to give Rogue One its proper due and time to breathe.
Today, however, lovers of All Things Wookie have had their patience and faith in the Force rewarded. As part of this weekend’s Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Star Wars universe, the folks at Disney has released the first trailer for The Last Jedi. Give it a gander–or 12–and let your excitement and joy run rampant.
While the trailer only gives us glimpses and snippets as to what the plot may possibly be, it looks as though Rey, after reaching Luke at the end of the last film, is being taught the ways of the Force–even though Master Skywalker utters that “it’s time for the Jedi to end.” But will Luke still feel that way after learning what his nephew Kylo has done during Luke’s self-imposed exile? As always, speculation time until the movie lands. And that can’t happen soon enough.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15th.
