As well as charting Rey’s rise to full badass Jedi, the trailer also follows the rest of the crew in the battle against the First Order. Mark Hamill lends his tones for an inspirational Luke Skywalker voiceover, which is juxtaposed with Emperor Palpatine’s (Ian McDiarmid) awful laugh.
Check out the poster for the film here:
