The Second Trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi Is Finally Here

Breathe. Just... breathe. The second trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally here.


It’s been six months since the first trailer for the highly-anticipated Star Wars sequel appeared, but now the wait for its follow-up is over.

If you’re like me you may have just screamed. Teared up. And just froze in shock out of all of the stuff we just saw.

Porgs! Finn vs. Phasma! Kylo and Leia! SNOKE!!! SNOKE AND REY! KYLO AND REY! AHHH. I need to watch this again and again. And then again and again.

Now that the trailer’s here, movie theaters have begun begin selling advanced tickets to the film; opening night is Thursday, December 14, and there are all kinds of special events and giveaways.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi, written and directed by Rian Johnson, stars Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, Kelly Marie Tran, Oscar Isaac, Laura Dern, Benicio del Toro, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis.

We’ll have a frame by frame breakdown in the morning.

Oh, and there’s a new poster too!

The lightsaber effects look off somehow and the gorilla AT-ATs are dumb as hell. Sorry, guys, even as a first-gen Star Wars fan, I’m finding it hard to get excited. Knowing we’re getting stuck with Abrams again for the next one helps temper any enthusiasm, too. I will see it, sure, but TFA did nothing for me in the end. I did enjoy Rogue One a great deal, though. Maybe I will be surprised by this. I hope so, but I’m not holding my breath.

Also, and don’t crucify me for this, but the over-abundance of very obvious CGI work is giving me a serious prequel vibe. If you’re excited, more power to you, I hope it’s everything you hope it is. I just wish I felt some of that.
