People around the world turned off the new Kendrick Lamar album to watch the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi which dropped at Star Wars Celebration today.
Call back to the opening of the Force Awakens trailer with an out of breath Rey opening it? Check. And NIIIICE.
Rey training on a picturesque rocky island? Check.
Brief glimpses of Finn and Poe? Check.
Dark shots of the crushed Vader helmet and a villainous shot of Kylo Ren? Check?
New spaceships with red jet streams and AT-ATs and…
OH GOD IT’S STAR WARS.
Ominous voice over by Mark Hamill saying the Jedi must end???? Oh yes.
Luckly, there was not a full shot of Leia though because I would have just burst into tears.
We’ll be back when other, more resource heavy sites do a minute by minute trailer breakdown but…PSYCHED I AM!
Star Wars The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson, opens in December.
