Drop whatever you’re doing because the first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi just dropped and boy, does it amaze.
Making its debut at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando earlier today, the first teaser to Episode VIII brings us right into the action of what appears to be an attack on the Resistance.
The opening shot are mostly landscapes, particularly of the spot where Rey and Luke Skywalker meet at the end of The Force Awakens.
The upcoming film is said to revolve around both characters, who many believe is referred to as the last Jedi (in plural form). This is backed up by Luke’s voiceover throughout the trailer, a stark contrast to the previous film which doesn’t feature Luke saying anything at all.
All in all, it’s a great first taste of what’s to come, and if it’s anywhere close to what Empire was for the original trilogy, we’re in for a treat.
Star Wars Episode VIII – The Last Jedi opens in theatres on December 15.
