The iconic actress - who starred as Princess Leia in the sci-fi movie series - passed away in December a year ago shortly after she stopped breathing during a transatlantic flight, and "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" will mark her final on-screen appearance.

This trailer expanded on that and then some!

If you had to endure the NFL and Monday night Football to watch this, bravo to you!

What do you see? Kylo Ren appears to be preparing to fire at Leia.

2 - Does Kylo kill Leia?

The film will also mark the final appearance of Fisher who died in December 2016. At one point, he is left astounded by her sheer power. The trailer shows him ready to take out a key Resistance ship in a space battle. It could be clever editing or does he kill his mother as he did his father? Several other cast members from "The Force Awakens", including Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac are also prominent in the new teaser.

The scene is reminiscent of Luke attacking the Death Star in 1977's "A New Hope".

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is written and directed by Rian Johnson and produced by Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman. Did he lose or get captured? This time, we get a bit more plot as the last Jedi - seemingly Luke Skywalker and Rey - continue to be hunted.

"Fulfill your destiny", he says to someone, possibly her.

The clip featured all the latest characters from the Star Wars universe. Perhaps it's meant as a message for "Star Wars" fans as well?

Rey reaches out for Kylo's hand after saying she needs some guidance: "I need someone to show me my new place", which leads to a new level of suspense.

Luke has stepped into Yoda's role, as the wise old person training the young Jedi.

How similar The Last Jedi will be to Empire remains to be seen, but this trailer portends dark things.
