Star Wars: The Last Jedi looks grimmer and darker as compared to the last episode, Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In the trailer of this film, we see Daisy Ridley's Rey in Jedi training.

The trailer opens with a hypnotic sort of lullaby music and we get a glimpse of Rey tapping into the force. A voice commands her to breathe and asks her what it is that she sees. "Light, darkness and balance," she replies.

Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker, who played a smaller role in the last episode, plays a significant part in this trailer. "I know only one truth. It is time for the Jedi to end," he says. The trailer also has a shot of Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, of the Resistance being attacked by the First Order and of the Millenium Falcon flying.

Some questions about Star Wars: The Force Awakens are left unanswered, such as who is the hooded figure standing next to R2D2, whose hand is tracing the sketched map, and who is the figure walking towards Poe Dameron and BB-8 after the explosion in the Resistance?

This film follows the stories of Rey, storm trooper-tuned-good-guy Finn played by John Boyega and pilot Dameron. It is the second installment in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, which is the third trilogy in this franchise. Late actress Carrie Fisher plays General Leia Organa; the filming of her scenes was completed before her death on 27 December, 2016.

On 14 April, 2017, at a Star Wars convention a tribute video was played for Carrie Fisher.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi releases on 15 December, 2017. Watch the trailer here:
