Watch the thrilling new trailer for 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'

Posted October 10, 2017

"We got more Luke, but not too much, some looks at Leia that really hurt my heart and some more insight into where this all is going".

The two-and-a-half-minute clip picks up where the previous film in the saga, The Force Awakens, left off as Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, encounters Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill. First we hear Rey say: "I need someone to show me my place in all this", before we see Kylo Ren extend his hand.

It's safe to assume Luke is talking about his nephew who turned on him and other Jedi apprentices. "I guess partially because the answer-and this is going to sound like I'm being coy, but I swear I'm not-is, you do have to see the movie". The voiceover at the start of the trailer by (presumably) Snoke will feed into their later encounter, which sees Rey looking like she's not having a good day.

Before the trailer's premiere, Disney released a new poster for the film. We know that Rey and Snoke have some kind of showdown judging by this scene and this conversation could feature in their showdown.

"Let the past die", Kylo declares. Is he unhinged enough to kill his mother as well?

Oscar Isaac's Poe is also seen flying, which is what he does best, and attacking the First Order.

The film's director Rian Johnson took to Twitter before the trailer's release to warn fans who wanted to avoid spoilers to steer well clear of the trailer.

As the familiar Star Wars score swells during the first trailer of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, it's hard not to feel the excitement. Yet we still see a fair bit to whet the appetite. Did he lose or get captured?

The final scene of the trailer generated a huge whirlwind of surprise, panic and outrage... The trailer for Episode VIII, titled "The Last Jedi, ' has finally dropped in and it seems like the 'Force" has been unleashed.

She questions her destiny, saying: "Something inside me has always been there". The new teaser then cuts to a shot of Ren holding out his black-gloved hand. Luke may have the experience to train Rey, but then, maybe Rey has the innocence and idealism to shake the old Jedi Master out of his gloomy funk. (Sorry Finn.) Does this foreshadow an unlikely return to the light side for Ren, or an flirtation with darkness for Rey?
