Now Playing: Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Official Trailer #2

Of course, trailers for anything will always spoil something. So if you really want to know nothing about the film before seeing it in theaters, you'll still want to avoid the trailer. For everyone else, though, it's a tantalizing but fun glimpse of what's likely to be the year's biggest movie.

The Last Jedi's cast includes Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, Oscar Isaac, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, and Andy Serkis. Although Fisher passed away in December 2016, Princess Leia will nonetheless appear in the film; it'll be the character's final appearance, as she will not be resurrected for Episode IX. The film is due out on December 15.
