During the ongoing 2017 Star Wars Celebration event in Orlando, Florida, the show's host announced a big surprise for the fans in attendance. Part of the event was an emotional experience for fans as several tribute videos were shown to commemorate the work of the late "Star Wars" icon, Carrie Fisher. To lift the spirits of fans, the event had one final surprise in the form of the first trailer for the next installment in the franchise, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi."

First glimpse of what is to come

After months of waiting, Disney has finally released the first ever trailer for the next installment in the sequel trilogy, "The Last Jedi." Much of what is included in the trailer has confirmed some of the theories and speculations that have been flying around in the past several weeks.

The first dramatic scene confirms that Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, will, in fact, be undergoing some intense Jedi training under Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill.

The adventure continues

Apart from Rey's training, the trailer also confirms that the movie will still be featuring the continued struggles of the Resistance against The First Order. This, of course, includes Finn, played by John Boyega, who is apparently now a big part of the Resistance. The character is even shown in what looks to be a healing pod, which might indicate that he was involved in some sort of big battle.

Oscar Isaac's Poe Dameron is also shown running towards his X-Wing fighter plane, which explodes just before he gets to it. Several space battles are also showcased, including the appearance of the Millennium Falcon.

With Harrison Ford's Han Solo now dead, it isn't clear just yet as to who is now piloting the iconic "fastest ship in the fleet."

More questions than answers

Despite having confirmed some questions regarding the possible plot for the upcoming movie, the trailer itself does pose a lot of new questions for fans. For one, Luke's mysterious words, “I only know one truth... It’s time for the Jedi... to end," sound quite ominous.

It isn't quite clear just yet what Luke really means by the statement, but there are a few theories that have been thrown around. Luke's desire to end the Jedi may mean that he wants to train Rey to be a gray Jedi that is one with both the dark side and the light side of the force. Then again, that still remains to be just speculation. Also, Adam Driver's Kylo Ren is only shown in a couple of scenes, which doesn't really help in answering the question of his possible redemption or how exactly he plans to deal with the growing rebel forces.
