We were really excited when we heard that Rian Johnson would not only be directing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but had also signed on to write a treatment for Episode IX. He’s definitely accomplished the first thing, but unfortunately, he confirmed that he would no longer be working on the script for the final Star Wars movie.

Let’s be real, most celebs would kill for a chance to get into a Star Wars movie, even if it’s just a cameo. As we all know, Rian Johnson and the crew shot the bulk of The Last Jedi in Pinewood Studios, which is in Britain, which is where the Royal Family lives. Last year some rumors flew that Princes Harry and William had filmed some Stormtrooper cameos during their visit to the set, and now that the movie is a little more than six months from opening, Johnson is being conspicuously cagey.

One of the most debated plots points of Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been the lineage of Daisy Ridley’s Rey. Could she be the daughter of Luke Skywalker? The daughter of Obi-One Kenobi? The daughter of… actually, come to think of it, those are the only two human Force-users we’ve met since the original Star Wars movie, so it’s either a very familiar face or someone totally out of the blue. Regardless, fans have now spent two years not knowing something about their favorite character, and that’s a long, long time for knowledge to be withheld in 2017. They’re ready for answers.

The first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuted this morning, and…wow, we’re gonna need a minute (or 20) to process, especially with Luke Skywalker’s suspenseful voiceover. We were promised we’d get to hear Mark Hamill speak, and speak he does — throughout most of the trailer, ending with a fairly chilling line: “It’s time for the Jedi to end.” But what does that mean?! Is Rey the eponymous last Jedi, or is Luke? That’s something we probably won’t know until December. For now, join us as we try to break it all down and take a closer look at the most thrilling (and possibly telling) moments with GIFs and screenshots from the trailer.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in theaters in just about eight months, and we still haven’t gotten a trailer for the eighth movie in the saga from a galaxy far, far away. Presumably, that all changes today at Star Wars Celebration, where The Last Jedi will be teased with a gala panel full of guests, surprises, and (we assume [we hope (we pray)]) some footage.
