You knew the moment Star Wars fans found out they were getting a new trailer for The Last Jedi speculation would run rampant as to what was actually in it. Director Rian Johnson warned fans online that if they wanted to go into the film completely blind and spoiler free, they need avoid tonight’s Monday Night Football snooze fest between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears. Well, for those of us either boycotting ESPN for two weeks, the trailer for The Last Jdeci appeared online, and it is gorgeous.

Most fans will be discussing that final frame but before we get there, let us break down what takes place ahead of that. First, Kylo Ren, after being defeated by Rey during the battle to close out The Force Awakens is now hell-bent on probably killing General Leia and convincing his now sworn enemy to join the Dark Side. Luke, Rey’s presumed mentor, is already feeling that she contains the same untapped power as Kylo Ren did before he lived up to his grandfather’s legacy. There are shots of Poe, Finn, Chewbacca and the Porgis, along with a possibly corrupted BB-8 along with breathtaking action pieces but the central idea of the film revolves around our heroine and our villain. Kylo Ren versus Rey is just another added piece to the twisted Skywalker family tree and we’re all here to watch it happen.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in theaters on December 15th. Watch the new trailer up top.
