The trailer premiered during the halftime break of ESPN's Monday Night Football and was online shortly after.
In addition, fans who see the film in IMAX at AMC theaters will receive a new print by artist Dan Mumford starting on 12/17, 12/24, 12/31 & 1/7. Tonally, the film appears to be the darkest yet in the saga with all sorts of destruction and potentially game-changing moments.
The trailer shows us also some details on the role of Poe, a pilot of X-Wing Alliance, and Finn, a soldier of the First Order who rebelled against his leader, Captain Phasma.
What's happened to Luke?
The trailer also includes shots of battles taking place on new planets and in space, and ends with the evil Ren seemingly reaching out his hand to Rey.
The film comes out on December 15 and tickets are already available. While the trailer reveals (and obscures) much about the forthcoming feature, it also needs to steady the nerves of fans who are concerned about the health of the long-running Star Wars franchise.
The trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has just dropped, and everyone on the internet is going insane scrambling for clues and hints for the movie.
Even though Lucasfilm has confirmed that Leia will not make a digitized appearance in Episode 9 (a la Peter Cushing in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), it is possible that General Organa could survive #TheLastJedi. This could be flashback scene from when Kylo and his Knights of Ren burned the Jedi temple to the ground. The Last Jedi, then, might be less of a straight-forward adventure than something more tricky, complex and morally ambiguous than fans expect... as is only keeping with writer/director Rian Johnson's back catalog.
Now that newest trailer for The Last Jedi, has dropped, more questions have been raised than answers...
With Luke not willing to teach Rey to control her power, of course she'll seek out a darker, quicker, easier path instead to get that same knowledge.
Does he give Jedi training to Rey?
