Last night, Lucasfilm released the latest trailer for The Last Jedi during Monday Night Football and safe to say that our jaws are still on the floor. The two and a half minute trailer was so stunning, the Chicago Bears and Minnesota Vikings both changed their mascot to Porg to commemorate the monumental occasion.

Okay, while technically that’s a bit of an overstatement, the two and a half minute trailer is wild with The Force.

It seems we saw a newly scarred Kylo Ren trying to take down his mom, General Leia Organa; the power of The Force causing a rift between Rey and Luke; Chewbacca and a Porg flying the Millennium Falcon; Poe ready to take action against the First Order; Finn taking on his former boss, and excuse me? IS REY GOING OVER TO THE DARK SIDE?

It’s been five months since the last teaser was unveiled at the Star Wars Celebration in April, and fans have been patiently anticipating for new footage for a while. The bar was high. But naturally, Rian Johnson and The Last Jedi team blew our expectations out of the water.

And, of course, Twitter immediately went into meltdown mode:

Only 65 more days to go (not that we’re counting or anything).
