Watch the Epic Brand New Trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

An epic all-new trailer has dropped for the upcoming installment in the Star Wars franchise, Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Prior to the trailer’s release, director Rian Johnson advised fans that the trailer may seem a bit spoilery, stating, “I am legitimately torn. If you want to come in clean, absolutely avoid it. But it’s gooooood…..” His mood quickly changed after the trailer officially released online as he came out with this next comment via Twitter:

Based on the trailer it seems to follow some of the same story beats as The Empire Strikes Back, mainly due to Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) being reluctant to train Rey (Daisy Ridley), just like Yoda had been reluctant to train him. The trailer also contains plenty of amazing shots and key elements that may allude to certain game-changing events, such as a brief, tense moment between General Leia (Carrie Fisher) and her son Kylo Ren (Adam Driver). Some may be wondering if this is the moment Rian Johnson was worried about getting spoiled. Additionally, the trailer concludes with a seemingly shocking twist of fate as Rey seems to look to Kylo Ren for guidance that Luke maybe couldn’t give her.

Of course, this is all speculation. Watch the trailer below and tell us what you think in the comments. Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases in theaters this December 15. Tickets are now available for purchase.
