Star Wars: The Last Jedi first trailer unveiled

A still from the Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer. The actress was honored Thursday in many moving tributes, including from her daughter, Billie Lourd, and her co-star, Mark Hamill. The narrative itself kicks off in the final moments of Return of the Jedi, when Iden - having just taken down some Rebels on the forest moon of Endor - looks up in disbelief as the second Death Star is blown to pieces.

Iden will allow fans to experience Star Wars from a brand new perspective, that of a heroic figurehead for the Empire.

"It was enormously appealing and she was so smart.When someone you love becomes a memory, that memory becomes a treasure".

"Once at lunchtime she said, 'You should try on my jumpsuit.' I said, 'The one-piece white jumpsuit?"

When last we saw Phasma, she was being led by Finn and Han Solo to a trash compactor-y demise, which would probably lead many moviegoers to suspect that she did not make it off-world before the Starkiller base exploded.

"Like most, I'm a huge fan of both Gwendoline Christie and Phasma", writer Kelly Thompson told for the big reveal. She's taking her first step to coming to terms with this thing inside her that she never knew was there and is just starting to reveal its potential.

Recently, Fisher's life and work was celebrated by the members of the "Star Wars" family including the creator of the franchise George Lucas and actor Harrison Ford. Carrie Fisher was beloved for her role as Princess Leia, a character who was part of the original cast.

"I promise you, if you go first, I'll heckle your funeral", Hamill remember Fisher promising him after balking at the idea of posthumous praise. Davis joined the panel for the announcement, saying, "I'm sorry for what I did to you in London, Dave". "What Kanan goes through is very adult. the good guys don't always win", he added, before referencing the fact that even Obi-Wan fell victim to the Dark Side (a little bit of an ominous reference, if you ask me).

He said: "Returning to the trilogy reminded me of taking out a pair of old pants from the back of the closet and discovering a $20 dollar bill in the pocket".
