"I only know one truth... It's time for the Jedi to end."

"Breathe. Just breathe."

I wonder if there was a sense of knowing when they put Luke's line of dialogue in the trailer. He's speaking to Rey, but he might as well be talking to the millions of Star Wars fans around the world, who are currently in a frenzy of excitement.

The first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi has finally arrived - being unveiled, as expected, during the Star Wars Celebration panel - and it is quite simply a brilliant tease.

It does a perfect job of setting the tone for the movie, which is at once recognisably Star Wars and yet has its own unique flavour, while giving very little away in terms of overt plot details.

There are, however, a few very tantalising hints at what's to come, at least one of which is potentially massive for not just this film but the future of the saga.

On top of that, you have a fair bit of Rey and Luke, returning favourites from trilogies new and old - yes, of course BB-8 is here - and some absolutely stunning shots, showcasing just how talented a filmmaker Rian Johnson is.

Let's get into it, and remember to follow Luke's sage advice as we go through this super exciting teaser.
