Perhaps the greatest moment among all the trailers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was when Han Solo boarded his storied ship and pronounced to his hirsute co-pilot, “Chewie, we’re home.” On Wednesday night, we got a bittersweet echo of that moment, when, at the start of the newest TV spot for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) enters the Millennium Falcon, a ship he once derided as a “hunk of junk,” and visits the cockpit his late Rebel pal will never see again.

The goosebumps-inducing scene represents one fresh glimpse at the anticipated film in a spot that mostly consists of bits we’ve seen previously: Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) having a hissy fit; Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) witnessing a space battle from a porthole; First Order assault walkers marching on the mineral planet of Crait; the Falcon pursued by TIE fighters; Finn (John Boyega) in an epic clash with his former commander, Captain Phasma (Gwendoline Christie); Chewbacca and his porg pal soaring into battle; a brief glimpse of General Leia (Carrie Fisher); and Luke telling Rey in the closing seconds, “This is not going to go the way you think.”

The 45-second clip, titled “Awake,” also manages to squeeze in a few new snippets of dialogue. Kylo Ren announces, presumably to Rey, “Let the past die, that’s the only way to become what you were meant to be.”

Meanwhile, the golden-robed Supreme Leader Snoke (Andy Serkis), seen in his throne room surrounded by his Praetorian Guards, utters ominously, “Darkness rises … and light to meet it.”

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters Dec. 15.
