Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer Dropped, Here’s The Internet’s Best & Funniest Reactions
Disney’s new official Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer was released and with it all the excitement and pant-wetting that comes with a brand new Star Wars movie. Tickets for the film are now on sale for it’s December 15th release. The Last Jedi trailer, which sees Rian Johnson directing, showed off much more of Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker who looks to be playing a much bigger part in this film than the glimpse we saw of him in The Force Awakens.
The Last Jedi trailer (also known as Star Wars: Episode VIII – The Last Jedi) showed more on main characters Rey (Daisy Ridley) and Finn (John Boyega), gave us some tantalising shots of Kylo Ren and Carrie Fisher’s General Leia Organa—the latter Episode VIII will be the final appearance of, which makes things extra emotional.
Oscar Isaac, who plays pilot Poe Dameron, also makes an appearance in the trailer, along with appearances from Chewie and the adorable/irritating (depending on your point of view) new Star Wars creatures, the Porgs.
What The Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer Reveals

One revelation that does come from The Last Jedi trailer comes at the end, which seems to hint at Rey joining the dark side as she reaches out for Kylo Ren’s hand—and, as you might imagine, it left people with lots of feelings. Although, as has been pointed out, this could be some sneaky misdirection (two separate scenes edited together to look like one) from the filmmakers. Or quite possibly that the Supreme Leader of the First Order, Snoke, is behind all of this and it’s all part of his masterful plan. We will all have to wait to find out.
The plot of Star Wars: The Last Jedi is still under wraps, but it will pick up where Episode VII finished, which saw Rey heading to the planet of Ahch-To to find Luke. Who had gone on self-imposed exile there, after blaming himself for what happened to Kylo Ren. There’s even talk that new character ‘Snoke’ is possibly Anakin’s father.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is out December 15, until then you can check out some of he Last Jedi trailer reactions from people, which range from people’s breathless excitement to adoration of the porgs, to still berating Jar Jar.
