The moment you’ve been waiting for is finally here. Walt Disney Studios and Lucasfilm finally released the first trailer for the next installment of the Star Wars Saga, which will be Episode VIII. You can check out the new trailer for the upcoming sequel, Star Wars: The Last Jedi, in the player below. The trailer was first unveiled by the cast and crew for the film earlier today at Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida.
This is the first actual look at new footage for the film. This is basically a teaser trailer, so the images are almost subliminal. It’s almost a lot like the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Luke Skywalker does get the most interesting line in the trailer: “I know only one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end.” Wow, that’s a pretty profound statement. Is Luke Skywalker still reeling from the grief of his failures? Will he be able to overcome this turmoil? Or hey, maybe he is right. Regardless, this definitely sets the stage for an interesting sequel.
The trailer also does hint at Luke training Rey to some degree, which could be interesting. Fans are probably eager to see how this relationship will play out onscreen.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in theaters on December 15.
