The first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrived on Friday to the unbridled joy of the internet, so far earning 17 million views on YouTube in less than 24 hours. This is the second installment in the Star Wars sequel trilogy (after 2015's The Force Awakens), which makes it episode eight in the grand scheme of the main Star Wars saga, which is not to be confused with the Star Wars anthology series, which is set before the original Star Wars series and began with last year's Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Got that?
All the stars of The Force Awakens are returning for The Last Jedi, including Carrie Fisher in her final screen role. New additions to the cast reportedly include Benicio Del Toro and Laura Dern. The film opens everywhere on Dec. 15, 2017. See the trailer below.
