Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer

"I only know one truth… It's time for the Jedi to end." Disney + Lucasfilm have debuted the first official teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the next film in the ongoing Star Wars saga. Directed by Rian Johnson, this film continues the storyline started in The Force Awakens following Rey, Finn, Poe, and Kylo Ren. Daisy Ridley returns as Rey, with John Boyega, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Gwendoline Christie, Domhnall Gleeson, Lupita Nyong'o, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, and Warwick Davis. Newcomers include Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, and others. This is our very first glimpse at the movie, so there isn't too much revealed here, but there is a lot to think about. I love the visuals, it's exciting to see Rey getting stronger, but I'm worried Luke may be going bad. Fire it up!

Here's the first teaser trailer for Rian Johnson's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, direct from YouTube:

    the end of the Jedi/Sith orders?
  • fatchary
    Oh man, I think they're going to the "disguised reboot" path again. It seems that the premise is identical to Empire Strikes Back... a major defeat to the rebel forces, jedi training and in the end freeze Finn or Poe in a carbonite
    • It is just a teaser...maybe the full trailer will lead speculation in a different direction. I doubt I'll watch another trailer for this one to keep the excitement up going into December...oh who am I kidding, I'll watch the first full trailer immediately!
  • Jon Odishaw
    Kind of underwhelming after the insane praise we've heard in rumour
  • BigJohnson original Jedi Master teaching original
    • Rey can't take online Jedi courses.

        I don't think there's wifi on that island
      • BigJohnson
        Sense this one does not make
        • It's a quote from a famous Sith com.
  • Brandon Cole
    Looks better than Looper lol! This looks absolutely stunning, x again I can not wait! No more teasers or trailers for me til December!
    • Jon Odishaw
      I thought Looper was spectacular
      • John Doe
        I too thought Looper was spectacular. Well the first half atleast.
        • Brandon Cole
          Yes the first half.
          • backwardsprogress
            What was wrong with the 2nd half? I liked the entire movie. Maybe not so much how it resolved itself in the end where he killed himself... but damn totally fresh new movie... loved it!
      • Brandon Cole
        It was alright to me.
        • BigJohnson
          but you probably loved The Force Awakens? lol
          • Brandon Cole
            I liked The Force Awakens ha.
          • ErrorSapiens
            troll indeed.
          • BigJohnson
            moron indeed
    • txJM
      How can you tell?
      • Brandon Cole
        Cinematography. Some of the visuals were beautiful.
    • BigJohnson it doesn't
      • Brandon Cole
        Cinematography looks 100x better than Looper.
        • BigJohnson
 it doesn't
  • Its not the best trailer, but hey it's star wars so i am going to watch it. By the way the force awakens is not getting better with multiple viewings, in fact it's horrible when you watch it more than once... Negative comments in 1...2...3:
    • You right. Star wars Episode IV is the best. You can watch it 100 times and you'll still want to watch it again.
    • Lagoya
      Very true! I thought I was the only one who found it a bit disappointing on the second viewing.
      • fatchary
        I found it disappointing on the first view :)
    • grimjob
      I don't think it gets any worse, nor does it get better. It what it is.
      • No really, it's getting more worse after the first time... Dialog, plotholes etc.. The first time the hype is too big...
        • fatchary
          Like why a planet so close to a massive sun has ice and trees...
    • Cyberdine
      Well, it's a "teaser" trailer.
    • RAW_D
      I was totally enamored with Force Awakens, but with more reflection and a couple more viewings, I realized how much it was pretty much a play by play of a New Hope. Which sucks, because I REALLY loved Rey and Finn's chemistry, their backstories. I like these new characters, give them something NEW to do. STOP THE GD MCGUFFIN Starkiller sh*t. The First Order is massive already, just let them be the tyrannical intimidating force that they already are!
  • I don't see any comic relief to balance the seriousness of the drama.
    • Cyberdine
      Hope you're being facetious
      • I'm always serious when I'm joking. Or maybe the other way around?... ;D
  • grimjob
    I just hope it doesn't follow the same beats as Empire. I'm excited to see it, and (hopefully) we get to see Mark Hamill eff somebody up.
  • Watched Rogue One again at the weekend, it was actually not bad the second time around. Wonder if Kylo will still be an emo.
      He better be.
  • This is the first time the STAR WARS font is in red instead of the classic gold. Would it mean lot of bloodshed in this episode? I like the Rey's Theme variation. John Williams is still at the top of his game.
  • Cyberdine
    Perfect teaser. Not too little not too much.
  • RAW_D
    The poster is cool...I'm interested to see what the official trailer brings.
      The production value is oozing from every orifice.
  • MAWG
    Does the end of the Jedi mean the end of the Sith as well? Is this going to be an existential observation of the perils of adherence to religious dogma in an ever secular world? Reaching out to Proto-atheist fanboys? Nah...just yanking your chain. Trailer-wise, this is Disney sticking to what worked last time. It's cool, peaked your interest and is sticking to canon. However, it's not bringing anything new. The introduction of Rey is just like the teaser for TFA where we saw Finn. Kylo Ren's Smashed helmet is just like Vaders helmet in the TFA trailer. It's what I expected, but all it does is want me to see the real trailer. Coming a few days after the Thor Ragnarok trailer does it no favours either....
    • The end of the Jedi means the end of the goose that lays the golden eggs.
    • shiboleth
      Oh, I like your sinister way to defend religion. But then again, what's wrong with being an Antichrist sometimes? As for the trailer, I pretty much agree ...
  • txJM
    What a big, fat MEH.
    • ErrorSapiens
      MEH: The things in life you even bother to comment πŸ˜‰ That basically just disqualifies it as a MEH. lol. Basic bro.
      • txJM
        I bothered to comment because I dared to expect more from a Star Wars trailer, and was underwhelmed. The trailer is meh. Sorry to burst your bubble, fanboy.
        • ErrorSapiens
          Fanboy? I see theprejudice is strong in this one. Bring the discussion to the board then. Tell us whats meh. I wasn't impressed by the trailer either, thats why I didnt comment πŸ˜‰
          • txJM
            By your logic, then, you must have been impressed with my comment.
          • ErrorSapiens
            I give up. You make less sense.
          • txJM
            Desired outcome achieved.
          • ErrorSapiens
            thanks. I thought so too πŸ˜‰ Too easy.
          • ErrorSapiens
            You need reassurance you make less sense? lol.
      • BigJohnson
        The movie looks incredibly meh. But its cute you think pointing that out makes it otherwise. So if someone criticizes the quality of a car does that mean its high quality? lol
        • ErrorSapiens
          Cute? Your master suppression techniques does not impress. And the car comparison? I see ur grasping desperatly for a point there, but there is nothing in the void you call an argument. I merely trolled the troll. And got 2 for the price of one. :) Bait, hook and sinker. Cute of you to help him in this though discussion though πŸ˜‰ Knightly of you.
          • BigJohnson
            This is some next level dumb...your point got smashed...we'd have more respect for you if you just admitted it
    You feel the creep of sadness from that shot of Fisher's back.
  • Π‘Π°Π±Π°ΠΊ
    Looks amazing.
  • shiboleth
    It does look a bit like everything has changed from the first three films just to remain still the same. I so hope I'm wrong about that ...
  • Payne by name
    Good music but didn't really fire me up and when are they going to realise that they will never create another Vadar equal bad guy if they insist on having the main bad guy not wearing a mask.
  • Xerxexx
    E X C I T E D
  • I'm Quanah, and I also approve of this message. You're welcome.
  • TheOct8pus
    I'll be first in line to see this....but this teaser sucks. It's dark and we don't see anything we haven't seen before one way or another.... Hopefully they'll give us a full length trailer in a couple months to sink our teeth in because this is a giant dick tease
  • Dotpols
    This trailer is very... meh.
  • The Gray
    Same sound effects, same music, same story, same plot points and same 1.5 bill box office take.
