Following what felt like an eternity, Disney and Lucasfilm has finally released the first official trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I say first because the preview they put out back in April was really just a teaser, whereas this new one is a full-on trailer, with some pretty significant story details revealed over its two-and-a-half minute runtime. There’s quite a lot to unpack here, so here’s a shot-by-shot breakdown of the trailer that dives into what all of this means for the full movie, which hits theaters on December 15.
Let’s take a look!
Kylo Ren (0:01 – 0:04)
Kicking things off, we see Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) standing watch over something being built by the First Order. It’s hard to make out exactly what’s being built, but it looks like it may be those new First Order Walkers we see in the very next shot. We also hear Supreme Leader Snoke’s voice over top of the scene saying, “When I found you …” in reference to his protege.
