It’s 66 days until the big December event. The event that the scriptures told us about. That we all look forward to with fevered anticipation.

Christmas? No, Santa can do one (only joking big fella). We’re talking about the eighth instalment of Star Wars - and the second of the new trilogy, which will hit cinemas in December.

The Last Jedi picks up from Episode VII: The Force Awakens - and there’s a brand new trailer to feast your eyes on, which is far more extensive than April’s teaser.

The new trailer features all the characters you’d expect, with Daisy Ridley’s Rey training with Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker on that deserted island.

We get a quick, non-speaking glimpse of John Boyega’s Finn, while the evil Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) is looking as menacing as ever.

Chewie is back, and he has a new furry friend - while there are sure to be tears shed at the final on-screen appearance of Carrie Fisher, as she plays General Leia.

Enough talking, get watching:

Before the trailer’s release director Rian Johnson took to Twitter to suggest that people might want to consider avoiding it (bit late if you’re reading this, we guess):

Released shortly before the trailer was a new poster for the movie, which you can feast your eyes on below:

And just to refresh your memory, here’s that earlier teaser trailer:

And here’s some behind-the-scenes footage, which was released in July:

All up to speed now? Good, start counting those sleeps…
