Rian Johnson debuts teaser trailer for 'The Last Jedi'

Madeline Patrick | 15 April, 2017, 12:25

During the Star Wars: The Last Jedi panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando, Josh Gad surprised fans in the audience by coming out on stage and declaring that he was hosting the panel. Considering the likely plot of the film and the lovely teaser trailer, it seems like Rey will be on a separate journey to become a Jedi and reconcile Luke Skywalker's diminished role in the Resistance while Finn seeks revenge ... and sleeps in a pod. Hamill downplays his own importance in the new trilogy, but producer Kathleen Kennedy makes sure to note his false modesty: Skywalker is a big part of the new film, and Hamill has even garnered some early Oscar buzz for his performance.

The trailer picks up right where 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens left off: mysterious protagonist and Force-user Rey meeting an older, secluded Luke Skywalker. Johnson revealed that the film is still in post-production, but they're "very far along".

"Breathe. Just breathe", Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker says opening the trailer, nearly as if speaking to the millions of fans watching online. The trailer also has a shot of Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, of the Resistance being attacked by the First Order and of the Millenium Falcon flying. The trailer has given a glimpse of the characters in the film.

"Finn definitely stood up for himself at the end of Force Awakens and caught a bit of an injury".

"Carrie Fisher was, is, and always will be a part of the Lucasfilm family".
