Jeremy Polgar spent the last year perfecting this awesomely animated concept trailer for a film about Analog, the last android in existence and a journey of revenge which leads her down an unexpected path. We love the action, ’80s tinged neon glow, and sharp linework.

It’s worth digging through every second of the latest trailer to whet your appetite and feed your fan theories until December 18th. We’re a little concerned from his black-hooded appearance at 1:40 (and the mysterious masked Kylo Ren) that Luke might be a bad guy now.
