Rian Johnson debuts teaser trailer for 'The Last Jedi'

She said the film will go "deep" into Rey's story and reveal how it can be hard meeting your heroes - presumably alluding to a cranky Skywalker.

Aside from the expected Jedi training under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), the video also featured Rey (Daisy Ridley) gasping for air that as if someone has choked her, Gizmodo, reported.

"As attracted as I was to her, I thought I couldn't handle her as a girlfriend".

"Star Wars" is beefing up its girl power through a new series of animated short movies featuring the sci-fi saga's heroines including Princess Leia, Rey and Jyn Erso.

"Wait until you see her in 'The Last Jedi, ' " Hamill added. "She had you under her spell".

"We'd have these stream-of-consciousness jazz poetry ad-lib sessions and I would just scribble on my script everything she said". There was a five minute tribute to Carrie Fisher who died at the age of 60. "And then, at the end of six hours, there would be like a four-word line of dialogue". This is part of the new Forces of Destiny initiative that will focus on the female heroines of the Star Wars universe. "This is where I have to tell you that Season 4 is the final season of Star Wars Rebels".

The actor said he had admitted to Johnson that trying to capture "lightning in a bottle" again was a prospect that "terrified" him - and he was relieved to find the director felt the same way.

Few weeks back, Todd Fisher, brother of Carrie Fisher told New York Daily News that he and Carrie Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, had given Disney and Lucasfilm permission to use the recent footage of the "Star Wars: The force Awakens" star in 2019's "Star Wars: Episode IX".

"To a certain extent, it's not Luke's story anymore". I connected with her first and foremost as a writer.
