Though a lot of fans were glad that Lucasfilm dropped the very first The Last Jedi teaser trailer at the 2017 Star Wars Celebration last week, others have been worrying about the upcoming sequel trilogy installment.

Besides the fact that most were expecting a full on trailer to roll out during the Star Wars event, fans have noticed that the teaser trailer for The Last Jedi strongly resembles another Star Wars preview – this time for the film’s predecessor, The Force Awakens.

A Star Wars fan who goes by the name Morphin Bad on YouTube has just recently shared a video comparing footage from the two previews to help fans spot the similarities between the teaser for The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.

Check it out down here:

From the use of B-rolls to the juxtaposed shots of Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Riddley) popping out on the screen to the featured space battles, the two previews share a very, very similar format. While this doesn’t mean that the two films will resemble each other, fans are worrying that The Last Jedi will come off as a rehash of The Empire Strikes Back the same way others saw The Force Awakens as a rehash of A New Hope.  There’s no telling yet, but we certainly hope not.

Featuring Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels, Lupita Nyong'o, Carrie Fisher, Benicio Del Toro, Kelly Marie Tran, and Laura Dern,  Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled to hit cinemas on December 15, 2017.
