The brief teaser doesn’t give away much, but it does provide glimpses of the ongoing war between the Resistance and the First Order as well as the apparent Jedi training of Daisy Ridley’s Rey.”I only know one truth,” Skywalker says at the close of the trailer. “It’s time for the Jedi to end.”
Even though the teaser is only two minutes long it was more than enough to whet the appetite of those on social media.
The teaser racked up more than 480,000 YouTube views in less than an hour.
The series also introduced a new poster that had Rey holding a lightsaber to the sky with the faces of Skywalker and Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren above her.
The poster, which has a retro feel, appears to be a call back to one of the posters from the original 1977 film.
