Star Wars Celebration continued to hit fans with a bevy of new information from The Last Jedi, which will pick up right where Star Wars: Episode VII - The Last Jedi left off. Now Disney and Lucasfilm have set the internet on fire with the debut trailer for the next installment, and as you can imagine it's elicited a variety of responses on social media.
The overall reception seems overwhelmingly positive, though there have been a few here and there with negative feelings towards the first footage. The trailer did a great job enticing fans with another big clash between Rey and Kylo Ren, as well as teasing the end of the Jedi Order with those final chilling words Luke speaks at the end of the trailer.
Hit the next slide to see what the community felt about the new trailer, and the official synopsis can be found below. Star Wars: The Last Jedi currently has a 3.89 out of 5 on ComicBook.com's anticipation rankings.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, from writer/director Rian Johnson, is in post-production now for a December 15, 2017, release. The film follows-up and continues the story of the next generation of the saga as Rey, Poe, Finn, and Kylo Ren find their place in the galaxy and follow the legacy of Luke Skywalker, Leia, and Han Solo. Daisy Ridley returns to star as Rey, with other returning stars John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels, Lupita Nyong'o Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa.

Evidently there have been a few fans of the DC Cinematic Universe that aren't too fond of the The Last Jedi. User @JesabelRaay has a few words for them.
DCEU fans who find THE LAST JEDI teaser trailer underwhelming. LMAO. Sweetie please... #TheLastJedi— Jesabel (@JesabelRaay) April 14, 2017
Yeah, pretty self-explanatory, though frankly you really can't knock anyone for liking the Wonder Woman trailer just as much as The Last Jedi. That trailer was pretty phenomenal too.prevnext
The Last Jedi trailer was going to be huge regardless of what day it was released on. Still, twitter user @shantays94 expressed the decision to release on Black Friday perfectly.
Seriously, spot on.prevnext
The opening part of the trailer is one of the slickest transitions in awhile, and user @Jake_Dudman used it to show how jazzed he was about the trailer.
Kind of hoped you would see more of Rey throughout the trailer, but certainly a good start.prevnext
Bad Father Han Solo
The Last Jedi trailer will be one of the most viewed of the year most likely, and user @BadFatherHan will have certainly fulfilled his contribution quota.
Superhero of Steel
One of the best parts of the trailer was undoubtedly the score, which hit all the right nostalgia spots for Star Wars fans. That includes user @SuperheroSteel, who shared the perfect GIF of how he was feeling.
Feel the force cat, feel the force.prevnext
While the situation Destiny director Luke Smith shared isn't recommended, it is undoubtedly happening all around the world.
How many people had their phone sideways on top of the steering wheel with headphones on watching Last Jedi Trailer while driving to work— Luke Smith (@thislukesmith) April 14, 2017
If you see people parked on the side of the road staring at their phones, you now know why.prevnext
Everyone was reeling after Luke utters those last words of the trailer, including Twitter user @patrisia92.
Yeah, you are definitely not alone. In fact, pretty sure I just saw someone else run into a wall as well. Okay fine, it was me.prevnext
The newest Last Jedi trailer was a rollercoaster of emotions, and fans everywhere were experiencing it at the same time. Twitter user @ProtegoMente knows just who might know what that sensation feels like.
Will Smith is the king of emotions ladies and gentlemen. Seriously, don't even try.prevnext
James B Farmer
Once the pure joy of a new Star Wars trailer starts to fade, you've undoubtedly hit the "but why" phase, with hundreds of questions rushing into your brain.
It turns out you're not alone, as @Jbfarmer so eloquently demonstrates.prevnext
Star Wars fans are very attentive to the small details, as are the places (like ComicBook.com) that cover the things they love. @luigipalooza would just love everyone to calm down a bit, saying "if people could stop picking apart the trailer with a fine tooth comb, that would be greeeeaat..."
Yeah, don't see that happening anytime soon...prev
