The first fully-formed trailer for "The Last Jedi" had nearly half a million views and more than 13,000 comments on YouTube within 90 minutes of being posted, with #TheLastJedi quickly becoming the top trending hashtag worldwide on Twitter.

The Last Jedi opens in theatres December 15.

This image released by Lucasfilm shows Adam Driver as Kylo Ren in a scene from the upcoming "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", expected in theaters in December.

The first official teaser trailer for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" was released online on Friday, April 14. The Star Wars Saga films would be about the end of one era of the Force, and the rebirth of the Force through Luke and/or Rey.

Followed by Luke saying that the Jedi Order must end. Huh?! Earlier in the day at a panel at the Star Wars Celebration fan event, Hamill admits that he "lies all the time".

We've just gotten our first look at "The Last Jedi". Some shots in the trailer also suggested Skywalker training Rey on the island.

Western governments have criticized the crackdown but Turkey says the measures are necessary given the security threats it faces. If approved in the referendum, the changes take effect with the next general elections slated for 2019.


Asked if Luke could possibly turn to the Dark Side, Hamill said, "It's possible". Benecio del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran have all been cast in this film, but we still don't know much about the characters that they are playing.

"I'm trying to use you as therapy to get through this together", the actor said. "Rey?" he said laughing. "Light, darkness and balance", she replies. "It's hard when you meet your heroes because it might not be what you expect".

"The Force Awakens" director and "Last Jedi" producer J.J. Abrams has previously hailed Hamill's performance in the film, suggesting it could land him an Oscar nomination.

Both the trailer and the poster were unveiled live on Facebook, and the audience was incredibly enthusiastic. Hamill said his personal and professional life would have been diminished had she not been part of them. Crosby has for years visited sick children in hospitals as Obi Wan Kenobi in costume and has been a regular attendee of Star Wars conventions.

"Sadly, Carrie will not be in (Episode) Nine", Kennedy said.
