There’s no point in me doing a build up to this article, because you already know exactly how you feel about it. Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi dropped its first full trailer tonight during Monday Night Football, in honor of the presale of tickets. It’s really good and fairly non-spoilery.
From what we can gather about the mystery plot, Poe (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega) continue their fight against the First Order and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) while Rey (Daisy Ridley) begins her Jedi training with the last Master, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).
I mean, you really can’t get any better than this trailer. Rian Johnson is a bold, fantastic director, and it shows here. This is a film with gorgeous cinematography and set design, and the sheer scope of this thing is breathtaking. The Force Awakens was one of my favorite films of 2015, and it is entirely possible that this one makes that list as well. I’ve already purchased my ticket, and I suggest you do the same before it sells out. The Last Jedi opens on December 15th, and you can watch the new trailer below.
