Rian Johnson debuts teaser trailer for 'The Last Jedi'

Actress Billie Lourd is best known for her performance in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy herself says Leia will not return in the Episode IX.

"I was just bowled over by her humor, her wit", said Hamill, who also noted how open she was about her famous parents Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher.

We can see from the teaser that the world is covered with white substance which resembles snow, but Johnson reveals that it's actually salt.

Star Wars: Episode VIII: The Last Jedi releases in theaters on December 15th, 2017. "Let me tell you, when I go to sleep at night, there's never a day so far where I don't think of her", Hamill said.

Star Wars fans can get a glimpse of the upcoming movie of the famed saga, with The Last Jedi.

Carrie Fisher won't appear in "Star Wars: Episode IX", after all.

On a related note, a fan event "Star Wars Celebration" is now going on in Florida, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the first installment, "Star Wars: A new Hope". Johnson said her character embodies the notion that even the most unlikely person can step up and become a hero. Hamill said his personal and professional life would have been diminished had she not been part of them. But this has been one of the teasers fans of Star Wars have been waiting to see ever since the complete production of the movie began. "Rian, I think, had more room to kind of do his thing". Unfortunately, Carrie passed away by the time we were well underway with Episode IX in our thoughts. I'm not crying over the The Last Jedi poster and trailer.

When "Star Wars" resumes in Chapter 9 it should be with all new characters, or at least the ones who've been developed contemporaneously- the ones played by Oscar Isaac, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. When asked if that lone Jedi is Luke Skywalker, Johnson referred to a line from The Force Awakens, "I mean they say, in The Force Awakens, that he's going to find the last Jedi temple, and Luke is the last Jedi".
