First 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' trailer thrills fans

The trailer comes just one day after the 40th anniversary of the franchise and is filled to the brim with everything fans love about Star Wars. Johnson said that Luke Skywalker and Rey are the people cut from that very same cloth.

The first Star Wars film, Star Wars Episode IV - A New Hope, opened in USA theaters in May 1977.

The thing you've been dying to see ever since the credits rolled at the end of "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens".

There's no telling where director Colin Trevorrow and co-writer Derek Connolly (who previously worked together on Jurassic World and Safety Not Guaranteed) will take the story next - partly because we still don't know where The Last Jedi will depart Leia's story.

While the teaser doesn't say much about the plot, it seemingly suggests that Luke won't be as heroic as everyone has expected, as he says, "I only know one truth".

The trailer also revealed the other two leads, Finn and Poe to be in precarious situations of their own in the Last Jedi. Fisher was set to appear as Leia in the 2019 flick and at the time of her death, we'd heard that the character was a major part of the plot. We as fans can't really handle anything happening to her since the wounds from Carrie's death are still fresh.

"We'd have these stream-of-consciousness jazz poetry ad-lib sessions and I would just scribble on my script everything she said".

Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker, who played a smaller role in the last episode, plays a significant part in this trailer.

When Lucas, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy, and Fisher's daughter Billie Lourd all spoke so lovingly about her, everyone in attendance and watching online got choked up.

"Sadly, Carrie will not be in nine", she confirmed. And that's how I want you to think of her: "that was Carrie".

The original "Star Wars" opened on May 25, 1977. But it notably includes Mark Hamill's iconic hero gravely intoning, "It's time for the Jedi to end", from a dark cave.

Despite the unfortunate announcement, the Lucasfilm CEO assured fans that they will be seeing more of the late Carrie in "Star Wars: Episode VIII" which is slated to hit the theaters on December 15.
