Mark Hamill: Carrie Fisher Star Wars tribute is 'therapy'

Mark Hamill: Carrie Fisher Star Wars tribute is 'therapy'

But, just a handful of months after the icon passed on, Mark Hamill took the stage at this year's Star Wars Celebration to pay tribute to his dear friend. During this year's Star Wars Celebration show creator Dave Filoni revealed that the upcoming season, slated to air this fall, will be the show's last. New cast members will include Academy Award victor Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern and talented newcomer Kelly Marie Tran.

Audiences get a glimpse of Rey's Jedi training and Luke's instruction. The first looks like it could be a flashback to when Kylo Ren turned against him and destroyed the new Jedi Academy.

The presentation was mostly a game of teasing hints about the film while revealing very little about it. Hit the jump to watch the first Star Wars Rebels season 4 trailer now. "A small amount", said Ridley, laughing.

Rian Johnson tells EW that it's called Crait. At last, she says, "A Balance" as it shows the light shining on the old books, surrounded by wood.

Tens of thousands of people at all hours tune into the YouTube channel for the moment April goes into labor. While the AAP staff are extremely busy, they assured the public that everything is fine.

Taylor Gray (Ezra) also suggested maybe his character won't go to the Dark Side after all, as some have guessed: "I think Ezra makes some great decision through season four". "I have to relate to things that are real in my own life to understand where Luke is at this point in his life", the actor said.

Todd Fisher and Billie Lourd, Fisher's brother and daughter, confirmed giving Disney permission to use previously shot footage of Fisher as General Leia Organa for Episode IX; however, Lucasfilm's Kathleen Kennedy just came out and denied this.

Ridley, Driver and Boyega all return for "Last Jedi", which opens December 15. "So sadly, Carrie will not be in IX", Kennedy clarifies. In June, we'll get to see the origin of Darth Vader's lightsaber in a new, ongoing Darth Vader series.
