A brand new trailer for Star Wars Episode IIX: The Last Jedi is here, and includes never-before-seen footage from the much-anticipated new film. In the trailer, Luke Skywalker can be seen looking around the Millennium Falcon for the first time, while Rey continues her training and Finn fights against Captain Phasma. The plot for the new film has been kept tightly under wraps, and the official synopsis reads: "In Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past."
The film will be released 14 December
Fans were quick to discuss the new trailer, with one writing: "I just want to say thank you to Mr. George Lucas, for creating such an amazing and epic adventures that is STAR WARS! Also for selling it and letting Disney continue the saga that we all Love," while another excitedly wrote: "I HAVE NEVER BEEN MORE HYPE FOR A FILM IN MY LIFE thought I was more for [The Force Awakens] but this and everything it has going for it!"
Fans on Reddit were also quick to theorise about the plot from the short trailer, with one writing: "That rain scene with Luke and Rey looks similar to the rain scene with the Knights of Ren in TFA. Maybe it wasn't a flashback but rather a vision of the future. Definitely think the cut is intentionally misleading either way," while another wrote: "I bet this is what Luke says right before Rey ends up being captured by Snoke. Parallel to when Luke confronted Vader in Episode V." The film will be released in UK cinemas on Thursday 14 December 2017.
