Hold on to your lightsabers: the official trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been released!
The trailer, which premiered on ESPN during halftime of the Monday night football game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears, offers the first extended glimpse of the sequel to 2015’s The Force Awakens after a teaser trailer whetted appetites early this year.
Picking up from the final scene in The Force Awakens, in which Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) came face-to-face on a mountaintop by the ocean, the new trailer shows Rey wielding a lightsaber, seemingly under Luke’s instruction, and Luke uttering ominous concerns about the “raw strength” he’s seen only once before: “It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now.”
