A new teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi aired during the final game of this year’s World Series.

It’s edited in such a way as to move Rey away from Kylo Ren – an edit in the last trailer that had fans thinking that maybe she was about to be seduced away from the light.

Also, the porg made the cut (he’s a wookie, she’s a porg – together… they solve crimes!).

Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres on December 15th.

It Didn’t Scare Me Enough Then… Trailer: Star Wars: The Last Jedi!

Luke knowing when to be scared; blade on blade action with Captain Phasma; a new character on the Millennium Falcon, an apparent mother/son face-off;  and a potential team-up of the least likely duo.

Yup, it’s the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi – and it definitely stokes the fires of ‘gotta see that’ in fans of both Star Wars and Rian Johnson.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens on December 15th.

More Star Wars: The Last Jedi Fun: First Look Photos!

Lucasfilm has released fourteen images from Star Wars: The Last Jedi and they are as tantalizing as the first look photos for The Force Awakens.

Rey (Daisy Ridley), standing alone, on the edge of the ocean; a barren desert (followed by the same shot except for the spacecraft that may be about to land/crash on it; land vehicles speeding across the sand like something out of Mad Max; Finn (John Boyega) either dead or in suspended animation; Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaacs) running down a ship’s corridor; the Millennium Falcon firing on… something; a burning city; a space armada (then the same space armada with one of its ships burning), and, finally, standing in the entrance to a cave, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).

Each photo is isolated – no context at all – and that’s what makes them so intriguing. How do they all connect within the framework of the film? (Double click to embiggen)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens on December 15th.
