Watch now: 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' teaser-trailer is here!

Meanwhile, director Rian Johnson previously teased that the new "Star Wars" movie would focus on Rey learning and beginning to understand her connection to The Force. "Things are gonna get dire", Johnson said.

He said that the 24-year-old was so like her mother that it was like cuddling the former Princess Leia actress again.

"'Star Wars Forces of Destiny' is for anyone who has been inspired by Leia's heroism, Rey's courage, or Ahsoka's tenacity", Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, said in a statement.

Next, Ridley herself came out to a standing ovation that began before she even had hit the stage. They will be joined by some of the franchise's legacy actors such as Hamill and the late Carrie Fisher, in her last film role. "The Force Awakens", which follows the original trilogy's story line, pulled in $2.1 billion world-wide in 2015. She's a brilliant writer.

The fandom from the galaxy far, far away has already seen two blockbuster Star Wars movies in The Force Awaken and Rogue One and they are prepared to see the next installment The Last Jedi. John Bodega, as quip-heavy Finn, looks panicked. "It's time for the Jedi to end".

She also revealed the first details of her character.

The footage offered few clues but notably featured Mark Hamill's Skywalker intoning from a dark cave that "it's time for the Jedi to end".

"For this particular part, it was absolutely perfect.She wore a dress through the whole thing, but she was the toughest in the group".

The movie stars were on hand during the 2017 Star Wars Celebration at the Orange County Convention Center.

He posted the photo on Instagram on Friday with the caption: "So much like her mother in so many ways - it was nearly as if we were cuddling our Princess again!"

"I think he's an important part of the overall arc of the story", Hamill said at the panel that preceded the trailer's premiere. It will be analysed furiously before the film's release at Christmas.
