'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' - the biggest takeaways from the trailer

'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' - the biggest takeaways from the trailer

Directed by Rian Johnson (Looper, Breaking Bad), the latest installation in the 'Sequel Trilogy' begins where Episode 7 left off, as Rey (Daisy Ridley), the young Jedi-to-be locates Luke Skywalker's hiding place. The post sparked an outpouring of reactions from fans of Fisher's with well wishes to the canine. They're absolutely one of the cutest things ever to grace a Star Wars film, but there's one little fact about the Porgs that can give us a clue as to how The Last Jedi might play out.

"Leia was meant to be more prominent in 9", Hamill told the crowd at the Hammerstein Ballroom, indicating that, perhaps Star Wars 8 won't be filled with as many iconic Leia moments as we wished for. Will he reject Rey when he sees that her power is also uncontrollable? However, in a time when it remains immensely difficult to get people to come together on any number of serious topics, it's oddly comforting to let down your guard and get excited for something like this, and to know that just about everyone else in your social circle is equally excited.

Millions of "Star Wars" fans watched the new trailer for "The Last Jedi" on Monday night - including one very good boy.

Judging by Finn's appearances in the trailer - which is basically limited to a battle scene with Phasma towards the end - it appears that Finn may not feature in the same capacity as the first. "I've only seen this raw strength once before, it didn't scare me enough then, it does now" he says, looking pretty spooked.

It's been almost one year since the world mourned the death of Carrie Fisher. Which isn't a massive surprise.
