It’s Friday night.
You’re out with your friends. You’re home alone. Maybe you are sitting down with a lover and your dog. Whatever you’re doing, gather everyone together before the majestic spectacle that is Star Wars Episode 8!
At long last Walt Disney have released the official teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
If you are like me, you sat down and turned off the lights. There was a moment where I did a complete OMG OMG OMG breakdown. Do not feel ashamed of these moments, if you have them as well.
“Breathe,” Luke utters his first word since breaking the silence from the last film, and asks “What do you see?”
The feels this trailer delivers is on par with Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: Revenge of The Sith’s epic teasers.
The theme of the trailer seems to be around developing Rey’s character and her training with Luke Skywalker. Other characters and shots are used spaced throughout the main sequence, including pretty scenes of space ships and moments that look like they are not going particularly well for our favorite new characters.
It’s not my style to spoil too much for you, but rest assured the entire Internet is blowing up over the two minutes and twelve seconds you are about to witness. At the time of this write up, in the eight hours it has been since this video was uploaded, there have been nearly 10 million views .
Once again, December 15th can not come fast enough.
