Fans React to the First Full 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Trailer

Rian Johnson

Star Wars fans flocked online last night to be among the first people in the galaxy to land pre-sale tickets for The Last Jedi's December 15 premiere in theaters.

Talkwalker also registered more than 23,000 mentions so far of Porgs (an animal in the Star Wars universe). It will detail what happens after Rey (Daisy Ridley) encounters Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), now living in exile. The trailer includes shots of battles taking place on new planets and in space.

As is the case with most Star Wars related news, social media exploded with reactions to the new trailer.

"When I saw you I saw raw, untamed power and beyond that..." As one of our survey responses noted, The Force Awakens trailer did "a good job of triggering nostalgia while introducing new concepts and characters".

It certainly leads nicely into the more shocking of the potential revelations in the trailer, which seemingly shows Rey considering joining the Dark Side.

We get our first proper glimpse of the big bad too, hinting that we may finally get some answer to who he actually is and what his grand plan might be.

Lucasfilm chief Kathleen Kennedy has said Fisher will not appear in the as-yet untitled ninth episode, due for release in 2019 - leading some observers to conclude that the new trailer was showing her final moments. This is possibly the First Order attack Kylo Ren leads against the Resistance, which we get a peek at earlier in the trailer. And would "Star Wars" send off Fisher in such an unrelentingly dark manner? As mentioned, there's a lot going on in this trailer.

But if you're here, you probably can't avoid it now, and you want to know what everyone else thinks before "The Last Jedi" hits theaters December 15.

Tributes, naturally, poured in following the loss of the actor who made Princess-turned-General Leia a household name, including a moving salute to her work on the Star Wars saga during Star Wars Celebration in Orlando this past April.
