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?

desispeed on Apr 14, 2017


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

fatchary on Apr 14, 2017


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!

Kind of underwhelming after the insane praise we've heard in rumour

Jon Odishaw on Apr 14, 2017

5 original Jedi Master teaching original

BigJohnson on Apr 14, 2017


Rey can't take online Jedi courses.

tarek on Apr 14, 2017


I don't think there's wifi on that island

tarek on Apr 14, 2017


Sense this one does not make

BigJohnson on Apr 16, 2017


It's a quote from a famous Sith com.

tarek on Apr 16, 2017


Looks better than Looper lol! This looks absolutely stunning, x again I can not wait! No more teasers or trailers for me til December!

Brandon Cole on Apr 14, 2017


I thought Looper was spectacular

Jon Odishaw on Apr 14, 2017


I too thought Looper was spectacular. Well the first half atleast.

John Doe on Apr 14, 2017


Yes the first half.

Brandon Cole on Apr 14, 2017


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!

backwardsprogress on Apr 17, 2017


It was alright to me.

Brandon Cole on Apr 14, 2017


but you probably loved The Force Awakens? lol

BigJohnson on Apr 16, 2017


I liked The Force Awakens ha.

Brandon Cole on Apr 18, 2017


troll indeed.

ErrorSapiens on Apr 19, 2017


moron indeed

BigJohnson on Apr 19, 2017


How can you tell?

txJM on Apr 15, 2017


Cinematography. Some of the visuals were beautiful.

Brandon Cole on Apr 18, 2017

23 it doesn't

BigJohnson on Apr 16, 2017


Cinematography looks 100x better than Looper.

Brandon Cole on Apr 18, 2017

25 it doesn't

BigJohnson on Apr 19, 2017


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:

ari smulders on Apr 14, 2017


You right. Star wars Episode IV is the best. You can watch it 100 times and you'll still want to watch it again.

tarek on Apr 14, 2017


I don't think it gets any worse, nor does it get better. It what it is.

grimjob on Apr 14, 2017


No really, it's getting more worse after the first time... Dialog, plotholes etc.. The first time the hype is too big...

ari smulders on Apr 14, 2017


Like why a planet so close to a massive sun has ice and trees...

fatchary on Apr 14, 2017


Well, it's a "teaser" trailer.

Cyberdine on Apr 14, 2017



BigNate BoxOfficer on Apr 14, 2017


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!

RAW_D on Apr 14, 2017



tarek on Apr 14, 2017


I found it disappointing on the first view πŸ™‚

fatchary on Apr 14, 2017


I don't see any comic relief to balance the seriousness of the drama.

tarek on Apr 14, 2017


Hope you're being facetious

Cyberdine on Apr 14, 2017


I'm always serious when I'm joking. Or maybe the other way around?... ;D

tarek on Apr 14, 2017


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.

grimjob on Apr 14, 2017


Watched Rogue One again at the weekend, it was actually not bad the second time around. Wonder if Kylo will still be an emo.

Carpola on Apr 14, 2017


He better be.

DAVIDPD on Apr 14, 2017


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.

tarek on Apr 14, 2017


I think there may have been some ROTJ promotional stuff with the titles in red.

BigNate BoxOfficer on Apr 14, 2017


Return of the Jedi

BigJohnson on Apr 14, 2017


good point.

tarek on Apr 14, 2017


Perfect teaser. Not too little not too much.

Cyberdine on Apr 14, 2017


The poster is cool...I'm interested to see what the official trailer brings.

RAW_D on Apr 14, 2017


The production value is oozing from every orifice.

DAVIDPD on Apr 14, 2017


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....

MAWG on Apr 14, 2017


The end of the Jedi means the end of the goose that lays the golden eggs.

tarek on Apr 14, 2017


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 ...

shiboleth on Apr 14, 2017


What a big, fat MEH.

txJM on Apr 14, 2017


MEH: The things in life you even bother to comment πŸ˜‰ That basically just disqualifies it as a MEH. lol. Basic bro.

ErrorSapiens on Apr 14, 2017


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.

txJM on Apr 15, 2017


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˜‰

ErrorSapiens on Apr 19, 2017


By your logic, then, you must have been impressed with my comment.

txJM on Apr 19, 2017


I give up. You make less sense.

ErrorSapiens on Apr 21, 2017


Desired outcome achieved.

txJM on Apr 21, 2017


thanks. I thought so too πŸ˜‰ Too easy.

ErrorSapiens on Apr 21, 2017


You need reassurance you make less sense? lol.

ErrorSapiens on Jun 29, 2017


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

BigJohnson on Apr 16, 2017


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. πŸ™‚ Bait, hook and sinker. Cute of you to help him in this though discussion though πŸ˜‰ Knightly of you.

ErrorSapiens on Apr 19, 2017


This is some next level dumb...your point got smashed...we'd have more respect for you if you just admitted it

BigJohnson on Apr 19, 2017


You feel the creep of sadness from that shot of Fisher's back.

DAVIDPD on Apr 14, 2017


Looks amazing.

Π‘Π°Π±Π°ΠΊ on Apr 14, 2017


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 ...

shiboleth on Apr 14, 2017


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 on Apr 14, 2017


I'm Quanah, and I also approve of this message. You're welcome.

Quanah on Apr 14, 2017


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

TheOct8pus on Apr 17, 2017


This trailer is very... meh.

Dotpols on Apr 21, 2017


Same sound effects, same music, same story, same plot points and same 1.5 bill box office take.

The Gray on Jun 15, 2017


I'm very excited to see how closely it follows the books. This will definitely be the movie we take the entire fam to for Christmas. It's taken 30 years for this movie to get here. It took that long to get the technology Lucus has waited on. The only thing is Star Wars was lost on my children. They'd never seen them on a big screen. So I'm really enjoying this. Now as a young grandmother and reallllly looking forward to Christmas this year for a great family movie. Woot! #welovestarwars
