For each Star Wars film, dating back to Episode I: The Phantom Menace, Vanity Fair does an exclusive photo-shoot, revealing images and new details for the film first. They’re always a fantastic affair, and the new reveals for Rian Johnson’s Episode IX: The Last Jedi are beautiful beyond compare.

The 40th Anniversary of Star Wars is still in full swing at the Disney Star Wars Celebration at Walt Disney World, and… welp. In an expected, but still amazing reveal, director Rian Johnson unveiled the first official teaser trailer for Star Wars [Episode VIII]: The Last Jedi.
The trailer is incredibly gorgeous, and shows several shots of the island we left Rey on at the end of The Force Awakens, as well as Luke Skywalker, a destroyed Kylo Ren helmet, and several flashes of where our characters are, now. Finn is shown possibly still unconscious from the damage at the hands of Kylo Ren, but in some sort of stasis pod, perhaps? Poe is in some serious trouble, in an exploding hangar, and the Force is still being as mysterious as ever. All in all, this is a fucking incredible first trailer for the most anticipated movie of the year, for us all.
