Rian Johnson debuts teaser trailer for 'The Last Jedi'

Rian Johnson debuts teaser trailer for 'The Last Jedi'

Actress Billie Lourd is best known for her performance in "Star Wars: The Force Awakens".

However, Kennedy revealed that Fisher will not be included in the cast list of Star Wars 9.

"Sadly, Carrie will not be in (Episode) Nine", Kennedy said. "Obviously, when Carrie passed away in December, that was a huge blow for all of us and it caused us to sit with Colin and really rethink where we're headed with Episode IX".

He noted that Fisher was self-conscious about her English accent during her first scene with Peter Cushing's Gov. Tarkin, thinking that she "overdid it" in her "foul stench" line.

At the end, a haggard Luke says, "I only know one truth".

This first teaser of Star Wars: The Last Jedi comes from director Rian Johnson who has delivered some of the most memorable episodes of popular television serial Breaking Bad.

But Trump's taxes - which a House panel has already voted along party lines against requesting - could be a tougher nut to crack. But they could point to other information - such as who else invests in his partnerships - that could help answer questions.

After Fisher's death, the Star Wars team had to majorly restructure their plan for the film, and as Kennedy revealed during an interview with ABC News, they "started over in January".

The trailer was released on Friday afternoon at the Star Wars Celebration convention in Orlando, and the convention also featured a tribute to the late Carrie Fisher. I think he's an important part of the arc of the saga, and there's a lot of mystery to him even within the film.

"We go deeper into Rey's story and what is very apparent...is Rey has a certain expectation as to what she might be getting from Luke...", Ridley explained. The studio was quick to shut down rumors that they would digitally resurrect the character a la Peter Cushing's Tarkin, but the matter of previously filmed footage was less decisive.

"Carrie would be there, checking that I was okay", he said.

Kennedy assures that Fisher's work on the movie coming December 15 was complete...

The day closed out with a trip to Disney's Hollywood Studios park for the special Star Wars Galactic Nights event, scheduled in conjunction with Star Wars Celebration weekend. "I wanted to be here with you because I know you feel the same way".
