Rian Johnson debuts teaser trailer for 'The Last Jedi'

Rian Johnson debuts teaser trailer for 'The Last Jedi'

Here's your first look at Carrie Fisher in the next Star Wars movie The Last Jedi - as unveiled at the Star Wars Celebration in Orlando.

Han Solo (RIP) surprised the 40th Anniversary audience by joining Davis, Lucas, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Billy Dee Williams stage. Davis and Lucas sat down and acknowledged the memories of Fisher and the late Kenny Baker, who played R2-D2 and died past year. The video featured behind-the-scenes footage of Fisher, photographs and snippets of interviews Fisher had done. "What do you see?"

As the lights came back up following Fisher's tribute, the crowd was again stunned to see John Williams standing by to conduct the Orlando Philharmonic Orchestra in a live rendition of Leia's classic theme, before launching into the Star Wars score proper. But she knew that it wasn't about the fight you were fighting but how you fought it - the way you resisted. "I want to see the very next moment of what happens". There were not very many people like her. She was very strong, very smart, very amusing, very bold, very tough, and there really wasn't much of a question.

"So much like her mother in so many ways", Hamill, who shared the snap, wrote on Instagram. There's one in a billion. "Carrie Fisher, I said ..."

For "Star Wars" super fans, most of the behind the scenes stories told were as well-known as the stories in the actual films - from the fact that Lucas' inspiration for Chewbacca was his dog in to the actors' problems with Lucas' fanciful and technical dialogue.

Hasbro is also rolling out Forces of Destiny role play and accessories, Rey's Extendable Staff, to a new, electronic Jedi Power Lightsaber, which are part of the Star Wars Bladebuilders system.

"She was brilliant, and obviously we will all miss her, but she will always be the princess who took command and never backed down, never was in jeopardy". And the answer is you don't. She is a maintenance worker for the Resistance and Johnson compares her to Luke as an unlikely hero.

It's been four months since Carrie Fisher died, but it still feels surreal.
