Playing 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi’: The First Trailer Is Here and It's Dark -- 'It's Time for the Jedi to End'

The first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is finally here!

The highly anticipated first look was shown to lucky fans (many of whom camped overnight to get inside) during the Episode VIII panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando on Friday morning.

We get a few cinematic glimpses at the new film, which seems to have a darker tone. "It's time for the Jedi to end," Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) says forebodingly at the end of the trailer.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will pick back up directly where we left off from Episode VII: The Force Awakens, with Luke and Rey (Daisy Ridley) meeting on a cliffside. Finn (John Boyega) and Poe (Oscar Isaac) will also continue their journey in the next chapter of the saga -- as well as carry on the legacy of Carrie Fisher, who finished filming her scenes before her death in December 2016.

A gorgeous poster featuring Rey, Luke and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) was also unveiled at the fan celebration.
