The featurette gives a glimpse into Johnson's mind and how he envisioned making the characters come to life on the screen. (He talks about how massive of a fan he is of the series and how big of a dream it was for him to be taking on directorial duties—we'd be freaking out, too!)

Plus, it takes us to some of the coolest on-location destinations, shows the sets being built and, not to mention, it features some heartwarming words from Carrie Fisher.

Watch the trailer below.

The newest Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer made its debut earlier this month and gives us a sneak peek at some of the new AT-ATs, those adorable little creatures called Porgs and a whole eyeful of the late Carrie Fisher as Leia, which we can't wait to see more of as her role in this film even for just a few moments.

Watch the most recent trailer below—and get excited!
