Star Wars: The Last Jedi is almost here, and to truly get in the (Force) spirit, we've brought together every piece of footage available for the film - from trailers to TV spots to clips.
Since resurrecting the franchise in 2015, Lucasfilm has made marketing Star Wars into a science, keeping information tight during production and slowly teasing out footage in the year leading up to release before a full-on blitz of both trailers and tie-in promos in the final month. As The Last Jedi is less than two weeks away, the marketing is predictably going into overdrive, with more TV spots and behind-the-scenes featurettes than it's possible to keep up with. That's where we come in, with this definitive guide to all the footage you can possibly see of the movie before it releases on December 15.
Due to the sheer number of videos in the article, we've spread them out over three pages organized by category:
All The Trailers (This Page)
Production Announcement Teaser
It all started here. Just a couple of months after The Force Awakens announced the return of Star Wars, Rian Johnson rolled cameras on what was then known as Episode VIII (technically he'd shot some footage late in 2015, but this was the start of principal photography). This was announced with a short but stirring teaser that confirmed the movie would pick up with Luke and Rey's meeting from the end of Episode VII.
The first proper look at The Last Jedi came at Star Wars Celebration 2017, with a teaser trailer that gave a taste of Rian Johnson's impressive imagery and his darker take on the franchise: we got Rey's moody use of powers, a glimpse of the destruction of Skywalker's temple, and, of course, finally heard Mark Hamill speak, saying the chilling line "It's time for the Jedi to end."
It was another six months before we got the next proper footage (although there was the D23 sizzle reel in the interim, which we'll get to later), but it was more than worth the wait. The official trailer didn't just give us more footage (including a porg) but contained some shocking revelations: Kylo Ren considers killing Leia; Luke is scared of Rey; and Rey may actually team-up with (or redeem) Kylo!

International trailers tend to be variants on pre-existing trailers, which is definitely true of The Last Jedi's; this one is in part the Official Trailer, with some of the teaser and, crucially, a bit of new footage: there's BB-8 out of Poe's X-Wing and a brief glimpse of C-3PO looking - shocker - alarmed.
