So if you're like me you were stuck in a post-NYCC daze yesterday, and there's a chance you might have missed the biggest news of the evening. We now have a brand-new, full-length, bright and shiny trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which opens in December.

The trailer features a whole bunch of new footage from the upcoming movie like …

LIGHTSABERS!

LUKE'S HERMIT BEARD!

THE TEARS YOU CRY EVERY TIME YOU SEE AN IMAGE OF CARRIE FISHER!

KYLO REN'S STUPID FACE!

But we know what you really loved about it; what was truly unexpected …

PORG!

Better yet … PORG SCREAM!

It's like a tiny little battle cry for tiny little battles. A single one is adorable, but could you imagine a giant flock of these things all screaming at you at once? Terrifying.

We're still not totally sure what Porgs are, but my money is on some kind of intelligent space chicken/penguin hybrid birthed from the mind of a hyperactive 9-year-old who is still giggling about the whole thing.

Wait … is a group of Porgs called a flock? A swarm? Oh, wait. Johnson already answered that one …
