The Middle Kingdom release date for Disney’s blockbuster sequel to 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens has been revealed: January 5, 2018.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released on December 14 in the United Kingdom, Australia and Russsia, and December 15 in Canada and the United States. (For a full list of international release dates for The Last Jedi, click here).

The film, directed by Rian Johnson, is the second in Disney’s sequel trilogy and has a running time of 152 minutes, making it the longest Star Wars film to date. 

A Chinese trailer for The Last Jedi was released yesterday and features some pretty cool footage not included in the North American version. The two-minute 26-second preview starts by recapping scenes from the The Force Awakens before showcasing Rey’s training under the watchful eye of Luke Skywalker, plus some badass space battles.

Other highlights from the Chinese trailer include people riding super-nimble space yaks (or horses, we don't really know):

Space yaks storming through (what we presume is) a casino:

And fresh footage of the Battle of Hoth-like conflict expected to play out at some point during the The Last Jedi.

No major complaints about the Chinese poster for The Last Jedi thus far, unlike the uproar caused when John Boyega’s character was ‘shrunk’ on the Chinese poster for The Force Awakens
