Mark Hamill is done taking a backseat. In the new trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Luke Skywalker returns to the driver's seat of the Millennium Falcon. 

Last night was big for Astros fans, but more importantly, it was a big win for Star Wars fans because Lucasfilm has blessed us with another glorious teaser for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The 45-second spot, titled "Awake," reuses some of the footage from previous trailers, but there are some brand-new shots that are more than worth the price of admission.

The shots that everyone will be talking about until the film hits theaters on December 15 are in the beginning when Han Solo's Millennium Falcon is shown hanging out in it's cliffside parking space. A hooded Luke Skywalker steps on board, walks slowly through her hallowed halls, and turns the lights on in the cockpit just as we hear Kylo Ren's voice say, "Let the past die." If that doesn't give you chills, you are deader than the Knights of Ren. Too soon?



The Luke moment on the Falcon is the equivalent to Han's "Chewie, we're home" in the trailer for The Force Awakens, only the look on his face suggests a less happy reunion and walk down memory lane.



There's also that quote from Snoke in his red throne room about light coming to meet the rising darkness.

It sounds like a poetic way to talk about the balance of the Force and all that, but when taken out of context (and given that we know very little about the character), it could be in reference to anything.

The spot also teases more angsty Kylo, surprised Poe, walking AT-ATs, training Rey, amped Finn, and flared lenses.

It's still nearly impossible to piece together the plot, though many will try via reddit forums, fan theories, and trailer breakdowns.

I've already watched it more times than is healthy, and the only real conclusion that I've come to is that Disney will be taking all of my Christmas gift money this year.
