The first trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi brought the hype.

I especially liked that rearrangement of John Williams’ score, which intertwined the iconic “Force Theme” with Rey and Kylo Ren’s respective leitmotifs.
I spotted this video online recently that plays a recut trailer for The Force Awakens beside the trailer for The Last Jedi. Watch:
