The New ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Trailer Is Here
To know the future, you don’t need to harness fancy shmancy Force-like powers, you just need to monitor Mark Hamill’s Twitter account. Last month, Luke Skywalker himself revealed the date and venue for the second The Last Jedi trailer in a since-deleted tweet. He was right — hence the deleted tweet — and that new trailer has finally arrived.
*keyboard smash* Did you see it? Have you watched it 10 times already? Did you audibly squeal when the porg showed up? (I did.) What’s up with that icy puppy? Is Finn vs. Captain Phasma about to be the best Gwendoline Christie duel of all time (sorry, Game of Thrones’ Brienne vs. The Hound fight)? Did you see Supreme Leader Snoke and Daisy Ridley’s Rey pull a Matrix-style backbend? Holy s–t, is Kylo Ren going to kill his mother too?! GIVE US THIS MOVIE NOW PLEASE.
Back in 2015, Monday Night Football was also an occasion where fans of the galaxy far away united with sports fans when Lucasfilm dropped the trailer for The Force Awakens. The first trailer for The Last Jedi dropped back during Star Wars Celebration and since then we’ve managed to get by on new stills, posters, interview details, and Star Wars toys.
On top of the returning cast, the Rian Johnson-directed film also features newcomers Kelly Marie Tran as Rose, Laura Dern as the purple-haired Vice Admiral Holdo, Benicio Del Toro’s shady hacker DJ, Veronica Ngo’s Paige, and of course, all those porgs. The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15.
