Star Wars fans have been anticipating the release of the new The Last Jedi trailer since the rolling credits of The Force Awakens appeared on the big screen. Unfortunately, Disney took their time and they made us wait – more than one year –for the trailer. Fortunately, we had Rogue One and a few Untitled Han Solo Film photographs released. All I have to say is, thank goodness Disney didn't wait until May The Fourth to release the trailer. I wouldn't be able to go another month until knowing who The Last Jedi is (or, are).
Since The Force Awakens premiered in December 2015, fans have speculated over the lineage of Rey, the fate of Han, the mysteries surrounding Luke, and who the hell the Last Jedi is (Is Jedi plural? Is it Luke? Is it Rey?).
While I personally hope that Rey is a mixture of a Kenobi and a Skywalker (Obi-wan could have gotten it on between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope...) the speculations will end at the premiere of The Last Jedi in December 2017. Go ahead, young Padawan, watch the trailer not once, but one hundred times (at least), and contribute to r/starwars with all of your fan theories.
The new Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer premiered at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando, Florida. The Last Jedi Panel was welcomed in by Josh Gad who, as we remember well, harassed Daisy Ridley for months about plot reveals and secrets in The Last Jedi – to no avail. In her own words, on Rey finally meeting the elusive Luke, Daisy Ridley said at the event, "It's difficult when you meet your heroes. Because they might not be what you expect..."
