New Star Wars teaser shows off Irleland's Skellig Michael

Disney's D23 Expo was where we expected to learn something about the future of the Star Wars franchise after 2019's Episode IX, but the only thing we ended up getting was a pretty incredible behind-the-scenes sizzle reel for Rian Johnson's The Last Jedi.

(Not that it stopped us from tearing up for a second whenever it happened, mind you.) But there's also an unbelievable amount of vitality and inventiveness on display here: brilliant colors, fascinating alien creatures, thrilling sword fights, explosive battle scenes, and all of the other things that made Star Wars so special for so many people.
