New 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' IMAX Exclusive Poster Unveiled

AdobeStock_79901815

It's been a bittersweet year for Star Wars fans, following the tragic passing of the screen icon Fisher at age 60 on December 27, 2016. And in the trailer's coolest effect, red dust under the layer of stark white on a new planet described as a "mineral world" on the official site, indicating that the last Jedi is into geology.

It's no surprise that this is a slick piece of modern movie marketing.

The force was strong at last night's National Football League game.

Rian Johnson delivered, like J.J. Abrams before him, with the trailer giving us so much more to discuss the next two months. In many ways, it is reminscent of the darker second instalment of the original trilogy, The Empire Strikes Back.

Some people were excited for what theories could come from the trailer.

The trailer also features glimpses of several other characters and quick cuts that leave viewers with more questions than answers. Finn (John Boyega), Poe (Oscar Isaac) and the ever-lovable Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew).

The three most suggestive moments, then, are those that push the story in a new direction. He pops up in the trailer, but only briefly, while Rey appears to be tempted by the dark side when Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) offers her his hand. There's also plenty of Luke in this one, and his sister Leia (the late Carrie Fisher who finished work on the film before she died). As Leia's Force sensitivity is rarely discussed in the films, this could be leading somewhere important.

In the end, really this deserves some credit because it's not a movie we can piece together from a few trailers.

"When I found you, I saw raw, untamed power, and beyond that, something truly special", we hear Snoke boom. Watch the new trailer below.

"The Last Jedi" - filmed on the west coast of Ireland and at Pinewood Studios near London - sees the return of the characters introduced in 2015's seventh installment.

The Force Is Strong In This One. It's set to hit theaters December 15.
