The New “The Last Jedi” Trailer Portends Ominous Events and Cute Creatures

If you’re a Star Wars fan, this likely needs no introduction.  During the football game on ESPN last night, Disney and LucasFilm released an intense new trailer for The Last Jedi, the 8th installment in the Star Wars series.

Kylo Ren vs. Leia. Finn vs. Phasma. Rey vs. … Everyone?  The trailer makes it pretty clear that this is her movie, and it looks like she butts heads with everyone from Luke to Snoke before finding comfort in Kylo Ren.  But we know scenes can be taken out of context in trailers for maximum dramatic value, so we’ll have to wait and see what does actually happen.  However, it would be an interesting development if the “Last Jedi” in the title meant that Rey became a Sith.

The movie hits theaters on December 15.  Below, you’ll find the new poster that accompanies it.
