Rian Johnson debuts teaser trailer for 'The Last Jedi'

"Last Jedi" is the eighth film in the story of the Skywalker family and the sequel to one of the biggest box office blockbusters of all time, 2015's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens". "To me, 'Star Wars" is the holy grail of storytelling and lore and you can't mess with it".

Ridley, Driver and Boyega all return for "Last Jedi", which opens December 15.

Lucasfilms, the production company behind the massive Star Wars films have confirmed that the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be the last time Carrie Fisher will be in the films.

It was always a tall order to fill in for legendary bleeping trash can R2-D2, but his symbolic progeny won the hearts of audiences from the second we saw him roll into action in the first trailer for The Force Awakens, and his many amusing (and extremely gif-able) moments in the final film went a long way to capturing that classic Star Wars aura.

Asked by ABC News Friday what has happened to Luke in the film that causes him to say such a thing, Hamill explains, "There's a difference between teaser and a trailer".

The bomb, known officially as a GBU-43B, or massive ordnance air blast weapon, unleashes 11 tons of explosives. Spicer also said all necessary precautions were taken to prevent civilian casualties and collateral damage.

"I'm trying to use you as therapy to get through this together", the actor said. But one of the things discussed in the panel was how small Tran's stature is in comparison to Boyega or Ridley.

Johnson unleashed the much-anticipated trailer, which answered soem questions for fans while leaving many still unanswered. (She was) the strong soldier of a woman who often openly fought her own dark side, knowing early on that we all have a dark side to fight, whatever it may be.

BB-8 will also feature heavily in the new film.

"The Last Jedi" also stars Fisher, who died on December 27, 2016.

"I enjoyed watching it, first of all, but it seemed significantly darker in tone than most other "Star Wars" movies", said life-long fan Tyler Watson, of Moss Point, Mississippi. Crosby has for years visited sick children in hospitals as Obi Wan Kenobi in costume and has been a regular attendee of Star Wars conventions. "We'll see a lot of her in VII, which is great". "But we've regrouped. We started over again in January, so, sadly, Carrie will not be in "Nine".
