It’s that time of the year again when Star Wars unites us all. The trailer of The Last Jedi has earned numerous excited reactions from fans across the globe. Meanwhile, there were also those who felt sad when they saw Carrie Fisher’s last scenes. There were also those who already picked up on a few Easter eggs and pinpointed the new characters.
A lot of us here in the office are huge fans as well so we totally get it. So we’re rounding up some of the notable reactions (mostly memes) and theories that netizens have been sharing for the past few hours.

Yes, we relate with Chewbacca’s new companion, a sea creature-bird hybrid called Porg. Isn’t it cute?!
Of course, Carrie’s dog Gary wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to see his late mom. On his Instagram page, the caption read: “Just watched the new trailer of The Last Jedi and my mom looks more beautiful than ever.” [Sobs]
DO NOT GO LOOK AT GARY FISHER'S INSTAGRAM UNLESS YOU WANT TO CRY FOREVER

Count on observant netizens to notice details from the other Star Wars films. Some saw the parallel between scenes from The Last Jedi and Revenge of the Sith. They also noted how Kylo Ren is just like his grandfather, Anakin Skywalker aka Darth Vader.

As early as now, Porg is already popular among netizens. One even said that his seven-year-old daughter was so happy that it was around to keep Chewie company. Awww.

Another creature that’s worth noting is the “ice fox” which has crystallized fur. According to Comic Book, the name and origin of the creature is still unknown. But we’re betting they’ll play an important role in the film.

The movies not even out yet but people are already making their predictions. They have a good feeling that Rey might go to the dark side especially with how the trailer ended. Plus, one noted that the Rey’s poster is similar to Anakin’s Revenge of the Sith poster.

But Cinematic Capture, an account dedicated to film and game screenshots, isn’t sold on the last scene. They even put up a poll to find out if people thought it was real or an editing trick to catch our attention.
For those who have seen The Last Jedi Trailer. Do you think that last scene is real or editing trickery?

Or who knows? Maybe we’ll get a plot twist like what this user said.
Plot Twist: Kylo Ren IS the last jedi.

So many questions and possibilities! We can’t wait to finally see the movie.
