While many of us still relishing in the experience offered from last year’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we’re more than happy to pick ourselves up to start preparing ourselves for another solid dose of Star Wars goodness. With The Force Awakens having dropped in December 2015, Lucasfilm Ltd. has played santa again this year with the sequal’s imminent release coming around this Christmas. Titled Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the follow-up film seems to pick up exactly where the last left off, with Rey’s epic discovery of Luke Skywalker himself.
And it seems the franchise is not holding back in its epic-ness by any means, as even the first trailer (as we’re sure there’ll be many, many more to come) comes with its fair share of epic. As the trailer depicts, Episode VIII will see the full return of Mark Hamill as Luke, as well as many of the characters from The Force Awakens, including sadly the final performance from Carrie Fisher. The Last Jedi will also see the addition of actors Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, and Kelly Marie Tran, but we’ll leave it up to the reveals to show you who they’ll be playing. In the meantime, enjoy the first official trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi in the jump above, and may the force be with us all as we struggle through the months until December finally rolls around.
