Next Star Wars movie to feature new female character

But we see Rey and Luke practising their lightsaber skills on a remote island.

Well, we knew that Star Wars Celebration was going to be a huge event but we didn't know it was going to be this huge.

Disney and Lucasfilm released the first teaser poster for "Star Wars: The Last Jedi", and if you're a fan of the series it looks awfully familiar.

The roar from the fans confirmed that they indeed wanted more, and Johnson obliged.

Ridley, Boyega, and Isaac are again joined by Girls star Adam Driver as the notorious Kylo Ren.

He tweeted: 'So much like her mother in so many ways - it was nearly as if we were cuddling our Princess again!

Hamill told stories of visiting with Fisher and her mother, Debbie Reynolds, in NY and attending incredible parties at their homes in Los Angeles. "A teaser is supposed to show you dynamic images that heighten your awareness and make you want to see the trailer, but avoid all story points if at all possible. Darkness. A balance." Skywalker is quick to let her know, "It's so much bigger", as he's learned over the years in his own training and life as a Jedi.

Daisy, 25, refused to reveal whether or not Rey is a Skywalker or Kenobi, but she did spill that The Last Jedi goes "deeper into Rey's story". We have not seen much of Phasma, and I'm very excited to explore more of this character.

"The Force Awakens" director and "Last Jedi" producer J.J. Abrams has previously hailed Hamill's performance in the film, suggesting it could land him an Oscar nomination.

The trailer then flashes to action-packed scenes featuring Poe, the Millennium Falcon, Captain Phasma and more.

After what looks to be an attack on the Resistance, fans hear a exhausted Luke utter: "It's time for the Jedi to end". The film also stars Carrie Fisher who died on December 27.
