"A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away..." is when Rey (Daisy Ridley) sent cracks through a mountain after she lifted a light-saber. It is the sort of strength and power that even took Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) by surprise. We are getting to know all of this just now because, Star Wars just dropped the trailer of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and we CAN'T. KEEP. CALM. Neither can Twitter, which has broken the trailer down into bits and pieces of GIFs and oh, they are so appropriate. So here's a round-up of what actually goes down in the trailer to help you better understand Twitter's emotions.
- "I'm crying. You're crying too. Star Wars," read a tweet
- "I want a porg! It's so cute," said another
- "Star Wars gives me always so much heart bubbles," said one fan
As Rey harnesses unimaginable power, in another part of the galaxy, Princess Leia (late actress Carrie Fisher) remains in search of her brother Luke Skywalker. Witnessing what Rey has the potential for, Luke makes a premonition, perhaps for all of us: "This is not going to go the way you think." But the cliffhanging moment of the trailer is when Rey meets Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) - who is on the dark side of the Force and Supreme Leader Snoke's aide.
Rey reaches out for Kylo's hand after saying she needs some guidance: "I need someone to show me my new place," which leads to a new level of suspense. There's also a glimpse of a newly-introduced creature called 'porg', which is an animated version of real life birds, called Puffins.
Watch the trailer here:
Twitter is excited in several ways and we can't beg to differ in any ways.
