New Star Wars Trailer Rocks the Web (PHOTOS, VIDEOS)

Mark Hamill says Carrie Fisher was supposed to be 'more prominent' in the final 'Star Wars' movie

Star Wars The Last Jedi

And honestly, it feels like a great time to be alive for Star Wars fans.

The entirety of the Disney Star Wars movies up to this point have traded high on nostalgically repurposing plot points and story elements from earlier movies in the franchise.

In The Last Jedi, Daisy Ridley returns as Rey, Adam Driver returns as emo Kylo Ren, Mark Hamill is back as Luke Skywalker, and Carrie Fisher gives her final performance as Princess Leia. "It didn't scare me enough then".

We've collected some of the best for you and posted them below.

The advance sales kicked off soon after Walt Disney-owned Lucasfilm debuted the latest trailer for the space opera's next installment during halftime of Monday night's football game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears on ESPN (another Disney property).

The trailer didn't even include Rose, Amilyn Holdo, BB-8's evil twin and more, so there are still plenty of secrets to be revealed on December 15. Luke is certainly scared by Rey's raw power, but it seems like Rey is, too. Because he's sporting a new look for the dark side.

The world has seen mere seconds of Star Wars: The Last Jedi's porgs, but already they're a divisive character.

But we also get a few new glimpses of Finn in disguise at a First Order base, a very troubled Kylo Ren, and our first good sighting of new "Star Wars" villain, Emperor Snoke in his glorious golden robes.

For those who don't follow, there's a porg in the trailer for the latest Star Wars movie. Or that heartbreaking shot of General Leia Organa.

The last thing we see is Rey getting tortured by Supreme Leader Snoke and her asking Kylo to "show me my place in all this". Star Wars fever will be caught before long all around the world.

According to social media analysts Talkwalker, the trailer has prompted more than 380,000 mentions since it was released.

Another moment that excited some fans was when Kylo Ren extends his hand to Rey.
