Stop what you’re doing. A new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is here.

Monday Night Football turned to the dark side during halftime as Stormtroopers took the field before premiering the trailer, which is totally jaw-dropping! Here’s the takeaway.

Rey is on Ahch-To in training with Luke Skywalkerwho tells her, “I’ve seen this raw strength only once before. It didn’t scare me enough then. It does now.” We could assume, based off Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that he’s referring to Kylo Ren, whom we see flying his new TIE Silencer and maybe blasting his mother, Princess Leia’s, Resistance ship. Kylo is heard saying, “Let the past die. Kill it. … if you have to. That’s the only way to become what you were meant to be.” Poe Dameron, Finn, Chewbacca, and BB-8 are in the fight against the First Order, and Supreme Leader Snoke may have a hold on Rey as he states, “Fulfill your destiny,” while torturing her. The trailer, which gives viewers chills from beginning to end, concludes with Rey presumably telling Kylo, “I need someone to show me my place in all of this,” as he extends a hand to her. Could it mean what some of us have already theorized? Will Rey turn to the dark side of the Force? Or will Kylo save himself from blasting his mother and surrender to the light side with Rey, ultimately becoming the Last Jedi?
