Happy Easter: here's the first trailer for Star Wars The Last Jedi

Star Wars fans assemble for a truly Good Friday: your first teaser trailer for Episode VIII: The Last Jedi has landed.

The 2 minute clip was unveiled at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando and opens with Rey, as she appears to be in training, with Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker uttering his first words in the new movies, as he says “Breathe”, before ominously warning: “I only know one truth. It’s time for the Jedi to end.”

Finn (John Boyega), Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) and BB-8 are all seen again in the clip, while we know that Chewbacca will also be back too in the eighth instalment of the classic saga, with this one directed by Rian Johnson.

The film, of course, will mark the last appearance in the franchise for Carrie Fisher, who died last year, as she plays General Leia Organa. Disney boss Bob Iger said earlier this month, "Carrie Fisher has been an iconic part in this franchise from the very beginning. We all miss her. She had great talent and wit. We’re proud that this movie coming up is part of her legacy."

The Last Jedi hits UK cinemas on 15 December 2017
