'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' teaser trailer lands in our galaxy

The first trailer for Star Wars VIII: The Last Jedi dropped overnight, and fans have big expectations for the follow-up to 2015's The Force Awakens.

Star Wars nerds might be going bonkers right about now!

Fisher had wrapped shooting The Last Jedi before her death. Considering the likely plot of the film and the handsome teaser trailer, it seems like Rey will be on a separate journey to become a Jedi and reconcile Luke Skywalker's diminished role in the Resistance while Finn seeks revenge ... and sleeps in a pod. John Boyega, 25, on where Finn is at in the movie.

It seems our young heroine will be alone, but guided by the voice featured in the trailer, when we see her again.

Then, as is usually the case with these trailers, it's left to John Williams" epic "Force Theme" to tide us home (with another little hint of "Rey's Theme').

All I know is this: December 15 can't get here soon enough. However, he said Rian told him he was scared, too, which helped him a lot.

"I'm trying to use you as therapy to get through this together", the actor said. The trailer comes just one day after the 40th anniversary of the franchise and is filled to the brim with everything fans love about Star Wars.

In the second pic, which appears to be between takes, Fisher and Johnson share a laugh as she thoughtfully sips a drink. "He called Fisher 'my beloved space twin" and said they were also great friends off-screen.

The Last Jedi will be in cinemas on December 15 - and we can't wait! "Light", answers Rey. You can make out Leia's classic line from A New Hope in the background "Help me, Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope". They can disappoint, she said, lending credence to the idea that Luke may not be up to the challenge of training Rey after losing control of his burgeoning Jedi students. She is a character that is basically a blank slate and it gives marvel a huge opportunity to play in the Force Awakens time period without stepping on anyone's toes. They show a picture of Johnson signing the Millennium Falcon. We've already learned that The Last Jedi will pick up nearly exactly where The Force Awakens ended, which seemed a little odd given that the Star Wars films all open with an iconic shot of a field of stars.
