Wow. Just wow!
Even after about 5 viewings, we still find ourselves speechless after watching the new and suitably epic trailer for Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi. While the first preview really didn’t give us very much, this one blew the doors right off the film, bringing with it tons of action, lots of Luke, a great and unexpected look at Snoke, some tantalizing teases of what’s to come for our favorite characters and much, much more. Exhilarating, intriguing and spectacular in every way, it was everything we were hoping for.
We’ll be publishing an in-depth breakdown of the trailer’s most important takeaways tomorrow morning, but in the meantime, we’ve now got over 40 hi-res screenshots from the preview, allowing you to relive all your favorite moments and get a closer look at it all.
Of course, there won’t be anything in these photos that you haven’t already seen, but again, they allow you to dive a bit deeper into many of the trailer’s most exciting shots. There’s a lot to dissect, to be sure, but you can bet that the next few days will be thick with Star Wars content as fans dig right into this new batch of footage. In other words, strap in, folks, as the marketing blitz has officially begun.
Said to balance the “familiar with the unfamiliar” and lay down a new series of rules for this most precious of cinematic universes, Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been penciled in for release on December 15th. It’ll be followed in relatively quick succession by Ron Howard’s Han Solo spinoff, before J.J. Abrams brings the curtain down on Disney’s rebooted trilogy with the release of Episode IX on December 20th, 2019.
