After a lengthy wait, with all of the questions we had from "The Force Awakens," we all knew that something special had to be coming out of the "Star Wars" forty year celebration festival this weekend, and we were right! As well as a host of announcements and guests about other properties within the "Star Wars" universe we were introduced to the first teaser trailer for the next installment in the franchise, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" and you can check the trailer out below!

What can we expect?

The new film is set to continue almost from the minute where the last one ended, with Rey training as a Jedi with Luke Skywalker, Finn badly injured and the First Order fiercely attacking the Resistance in the wake of the Resistance's successful attack on Starkiller Base in the finale of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

We already know that some new characters will play a big role in the film, with Benicio Del Toro set to play a brand new villain and that Laura Dern will be playing a major role as a Resistance general who will be at odds with Poe Dameron during "The Last Jedi."

We also know what Kylo Ren has gone off with Supreme Leader Snoke to complete his training, which means we may not see quite as much of him in this film. However, there have also been rumors that Kylo and the Knights of Ren will turn up on Luke's planet and fight with him and Rey at some point during "The Last Jedi."

What has the trailer revealed?

Well, not a lot just yet. We know that Luke is probably being quite hard on Rey, and is possibly even a little reluctant to teach her as a Jedi. We can see that Finn is still injured, that there may be a darker theme to this film than there was to "The Force Awakens" and that there will be a significant moment where Luke declares that the Jedi need to die, an almost unthinkable thing to hear from him.

Aside from this, we know that the film will progress the new "Star Wars" trilogy towards the third and final film, although that might not be the end as Disney have announced their plans to continue making "Star Wars" films for at least another decade.

What's next?

We can keep an eye out for a full-length trailer, rumored to possibly drop on May the 4th as that is known universally as "Star Wars" day. Until then, this trailer will have to do. Some other interesting notes from the trailer include the new visual aspect, which seems distinctly different in style to "The Force Awakens."

This makes sense though, as Rian Johnson has taken over directorial duties from JJ Abrams for this installment. We can expect the different style to continue into the third film of the trilogy, set to be directed by Colin Trevorrow.

"Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is set for release on December 15th, 2017.
