Rolling Stone calls it "thrilling." While io9 goes with "glorious." But Deadspin may have summed it up best: "HELL YEAH SPACE BATTLE HELL YEAH WOO." That's right, a new Star Wars trailer dropped Friday. Audiences at Stars Wars Celebration Orlando got the first sneak peek at Star Wars: The Last Jedi before the trailer was released into the greedy maw of the internet. And if the gifs rapidly proliferating across comments sections and Twitter are any indication, the internet was ready. The Last Jedi, directed by Rian Johnson, opens on Dec. 15. It's the sequel to 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. (More Star Wars stories.)
