First trailer for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI released

Lucasfilm have released the first trailer for Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi.

The Last Jedi is the direct sequel to 2015's The Force Awakens and picks up where that movie left off. The Resistance has won a victory over the First Order by destroying its Starkiller weapon, but the First Order remains very much intact. Kylo Ren, badly wounded in lightsabre combat, is being healed and tutored by his mentor, the mysterious Supreme Leader Snoke. Finn remains badly injured from the same battle.

The film's main narrative thrust, however, appears to centre on Rey and Luke Skywalker. Rey has located Luke on a remote planet and is learning the ways of the Force from him, but Luke appears disillusioned by the Jedi ways, declaring that it may be time for the organisation to disappear.

The Last Jedi will be released on 15 December this year.

It's a pleasingly vague trailer that gives away the bare minimum without spoiling things (something which too many trailers do these days). Will have to try hard and resist watching any future ones now!

That was underwhelming... I’m slowly coming to the realization that I am just not a Star Wars fan. Which is weird because it contains everything that I love, but I can’t get into any of the movies. I really wanted to love Rogue One, but it bored me to tears.
