The studio released the trailer following its debut at the “Star Wars Celebration” in Orlando.

Several stars made surprise appearances at the event, including Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and new cast member, Kelly Marie Tran. “The Last Jedi,” which opens on Dec. 15, follows up where 2015’s cultural and box office titan “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” left off.

Cate Blanchett’s supervillainess Hela made her deadly debut in the trailer along with Mark Ruffalo’s Hulk. “Thor: Ragnarok” is a sequel to 2011’s “Thor” and 2013’s “Thor: The Dark World.” The film — opening on Nov. 3 — is directed by Taika Waititi from a screenplay by Eric Pearson, and stars Chris Hemsworth.

Disney-Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” generated 18,500 new conversations last week in the wake of airing a behind-the-scenes clip on April 14 on “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” The sequel is launching on May 5 amid massive expectations.
