After waiting for an hour while watching the live feed at Star Wars Celebration, director Rian Johnson released the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. And, let me tell you, the hype train is ON!
The teaser trailer starts off immediately after that notorious cliffhanger we had to emotionally contend with at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We get to witness Rey being trained to use her Force, which gave me personal flutters of fangasm whimsy. The Resistance looks to be in great trouble, with explosions and Poe Dameron frantically running to get to his X-Wing.
Obviously, there will be a battle between the Resistance and the First Order. There was a glimpse of Kylo Ren, but his appearance has been (purposely?) made minimal in this teaser.
The moment that made chills run up and down my spine was when Luke Skywalker tiredly stated, “It’s time for the Jedi to end.” Grey Jedi moment alert? Please let this be so! (Disclaimer: I personally find the Grey Jedi to be a fascinating part of the Star Wars Universe. Please allow me to fantasize just a wee bit.)
Star Wars: The Last Jedi will premiere in theaters on December 25, 2017. It will be the best Christmas present ever! Make sure you check out the trailer below if you haven’t already and let us know your thoughts.
