The moment is very nearly here! We're reportedly mere days away from the very first Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer dropping.

We stress that there's nothing official yet, but reliable fansite Star Wars News Net reports it could premiere when the annual Star Wars Celebration kicks off later this week in Orlando, Florida (via Gamespot).

The most likely time for a trailer to drop would be during the Last Jedi panel on Friday (April 14) at 11am ET/4pm UK, seeing as a trailer previously premiered during the Force Awakens panel back in 2015.

According to the fansite, we can expect a "full trailer" rather than just a teaser whenever the Last Jedi clip does finally drop.

The very first footage from Star Wars: The Last Jedi was screened last month for a lucky group of Disney investors, with Chewbacca, Finn and General Leia Organa all making appearances.

This footage apparently picked up directly after The Force Awakens, with Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) on top of the mountain asking Rey (Daisy Ridley): "Who are you?"

Disney CEO Bob Iger has already seen a full cut of The Last Jedi, and described the Rian Johnson-directed movie as being "just as satisfying as [The Force Awakens] was".

The executive also confirmed that the movie's storyline was not altered in any way after the tragic death of General Leia actress Carrie Fisher last December.

Plans are already in the works for General Leia to appear in Star Wars Episode IX without using any CGI to digitally recreate the late Fisher.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will arrive in cinemas on December 15. Watch a teaser below:
