Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer is absolutely beautiful — as seen through these shots

Thank you, Rian Johnson

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Millennium Falcon Lucasfilm/Disney

Disney and Lucasfilm released the first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi today and one thing is blatantly obvious — it’s absolutely stunning.

Director Rian Johnson, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, and cast members Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran were on stage to present the trailer. It finally answers some questions about Luke Skywalker’s role in the new trilogy and gives us an update on Rey’s capabilities.

For those who are fans of Johnson’s previous work (Brick, Looper), the stunning cinematography and shots won’t be as surprising, but collected and viewed together, it’s nearly impossible to not admire what Johnson is bringing to the franchise.

We’ve taken some of the best shots from the trailer and included them below. Use them as your new wallpaper or just stare at them longingly and count down the days until The Last Jedi is finally here.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released on Dec. 15.
