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.

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.
