Chewbacca Smacks A Porg In The Latest Star Wars: The Last Jedi Trailer
"So good to have you back."
Teaser and promos for Star Wars: The Last Jedi seem to be arriving at a rate of several a week now. Hot the heels of this recent TV spot, we have an even shorter promo, which you can watch above. We've seen much of the footage before, but it's worth checking out for a funny moment between Chewie and a Porg in the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon.
The Last Jedi is directed by Rian Johnson and stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, and Andy Serkis. It hits theaters on December 15; for more, check out our The Last Jedi review.
Unsurprisingly, the movie is expected to have a huge opening weekend at the box office. Early first-weekend projections have predicted that the film will make $215 million in the US over its first three days. While that would be below The Force Awakens' first-weekend haul of $247 million, it would still be the second-biggest of all time, ahead of Jurassic World's $208 million opening in 2015.
In related news, it was revealed last week that Johnson will write and direct a new Star Wars trilogy. Work on the next set of movies will begin after the release of JJ Abrams' Episode IX in 2019. In addition, Disney is planning a live-action Star Wars TV show, which will be available on its upcoming streaming service.
