At the beginning of the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, we hear Luke Skywalker saying: "Breathe ... just breathe..." Though there weren't any shots with Luke on Rey's back, it can be surmised by the trailer that dagobah esque training sequences will make up a fair bit of the film between the two. We now have our first peek at the next chapter in the Star Wars saga, "Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi".

Much ado was made of the possibility that Princess General Leia would live on digitally, thanks to the use of posthumous character recreation in Rogue One and to comments from those close to the project.

Fisher died in December but had wrapped shooting "The Last Jedi" before her death, and was honored with an emotional video tribute as the convention opened Thursday.

After the day's headliner panel we spent some time processing, discussing, and writing about that trailer... and of course fetching a poster tube to store the already highly-sought-after "The Last Jedi" artwork we had walked away with.

With this she assured that Fisher's role will not just be a cameo. However, Kennedy ensured that we would see a lot of Leia in "Eight", "which is great". "[She] has the biggest new part in the movie and ironically is played by the smallest actor", said Johnson.

Fisher's brother Todd had previously said his sister would feature in the movie posthumously, after her death in December 2017. He added, "She's not a soldier, she's not looking to be a hero".

Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy put to rest rumors Friday that Carrie Fisher could have a potential role in Star Wars: Episode IX.

Directed by Rian Johnson ("Looper", "Brick"), "The Last Jedi" was filmed on the west coast of Ireland and at Pinewood Studios near London. "We pretty much started over". Now we know that her journey will end with The Last Jedi.

"I actually can tell you some things".

He said: "Star Wars: The Force Awakens' broke box office records around the world in late 2015, bringing the magnificent scenery of Skellig Michael and the Wild Atlantic Way to the attention of millions of people everywhere".
