The latest and likely final trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is here. The trailer for Episode VIII debuted on ESPN during Monday’s National Football League game between the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears, but the only match-up we care about right now is the Dark Side vs. the Light Side.

Watch the brand new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi above.

In Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi, the Skywalker saga continues as the heroes of The Force Awakens join the galactic legends in an epic adventure that unlocks age-old mysteries of the Force and shocking revelations of the past.

Those age-old mysteries could shed light on why Luke Skywalker believes he should remain the “last Jedi.” And we’re sure to learn more about Rey’s origins, and the secrets of Supreme Leader Snoke.

Prior to the trailer, a new poster of the film was released.

Star Wars The Last Jedi

Luke, who was absent in the poster for The Force Awakens, looms large overhead. A scarred Rey and Kylo Ren are on opposing sides wielding lightsabers, which Luke’s sister Leia is in the middle. Finn and Poe Dameron are also on opposite sides, perhaps a nod to the fact that they are on separate missions. There’s also newcomer Rose, and the bottom of the poster shows Resistance ski speeders racing towards First Order walkers.

The Rian Johnson-directed film stars Mark Hamill, the late Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in U.S. theaters on December 15.
