[Watch] Star Wars: The Last Jedi official trailer is here

The Star Wars franchise may be going through some trials of will and creative differences, but it’s time to brush that all aside so we can revel in the sheer coolness of the what is to be The Last Jedi.

It’s finally here: the much-anticipated trailer for the sequel to The Force Awakens — the blockbuster that brought in over US$2-billion for Disney’s Lucasfilms. It’s currently the highest-grossing Star Wars film (and the third highest-grossing film of all time) — but all that could change come December.

Be warned: Director Rian Johnson has suggested that “if you want to [go] in clean, absolutely avoid [the trailer]”.

In it you’ll get: a worried Luke Skywalker, an empowered Rey, a whole bunch of Kylo Ren/Rey parallels, and some beautiful special effects.

The film stars Daisey Ridley, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and the late Carrie Fisher, and welcomes universe newcomer Kelly Marie Tran (who has been kept hidden from the trailer).

It premieres in South Africa on 15 December.
