Star Wars: The Last Jedi teaser

With just over a month until Star Wars: The Last Jedi finally reaches cinemas, multiple new clips have found their way online.

First off, there was a behind-the-scenes featurette that focussed on director Rian Johnson, featuring some flickers of new footage.

Now comes the TV spot, which sees some key new scenes added, including Luke Skywalker — played by Mark Hamill — entering the Millenium Falcon.

Last month, a longer trailer for The Last Jedi was released online, featuring some very teasing words and imagery. Read our breakdown here.

Episode VIII follows on from events depicted in JJ Abrams' hugely-successful The Force Awakens, which was released in December 2015.

Johnson’s sequel will see the return of Daisy Ridley, Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels and Gwendoline Christie alongside newcomers Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in UK cinemas on 14 December 2017.
