'The Last Jedi' Full Trailer Is Here & Twitter Cannot Handle It — VIDEO
The Galaxy may be in big trouble, but at least you can rejoice temporarily, because the full Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer is officially here. And it's everything you were hoping for. There's more of everything this time around, including Luke and Rey's training sessions. Why the former savior of the Galaxy wants the Jedi to end remains a mystery for now, but all will be revealed when the film hits theaters on Dec. 15. In the meantime, fans are busy obsessing over every detail of the trailer.
In case you need another reason to get excited, you can buy tickets to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi right now. The sale began just before the trailer arrived during Monday night's football game, so if you want an opening night seat, you better move fast. After watching the epic teases of what's to come for Rey, Finn, Luke, and the rest of the characters, you can bet everyone will want to see Episode VIII immediately.
The excitement surrounding Star Wars: The Last Jedi is tempered with a dash of sadness as well. The film marks the late Carrie Fisher's final performance as General Leia. Her presence is felt throughout the trailer, which only adds to the feeling that The Last Jedi will honor Leia's legacy in a special way. Seeing Leia in action is bittersweet, but knowing she has an important role to play in this chapter of the story should be a comfort to Fisher's legion of fans.
In addition to Fisher, The Last Jedi will also star Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Benicio Del Toro, and Gwendoline Christie. Plus, Kelly Marie Tran is joining the cast as Rose Tico, a mechanic in the resistance, who will almost certainly be your new favorite character. The character was introduced at the Star Wars Celebration in April, and was described by director Rian Johnson as the most significant new character in the franchise's eighth chapter. However, Rose wasn't spotted in the new trailer, and fans are understandably a little bummed about that.
Aside from that, the reaction on Twitter has been overall positive, as fans pore over every single scene.
