Meanwhile, director Rian Johnson previously teased that the new "Star Wars" movie would focus on Rey learning and beginning to understand her connection to The Force.
Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and BB-8 are almost blown to bits as their X-Wing is attacked.
She said: "My mom used to say she never knew where Princess Leia ended and Carrie Fisher began". She said the film will go "deep" into Rey's story and reveal how it can be hard meeting your heroes - presumably alluding to a cranky Skywalker. Plus, it would put a dent in their budget to try to digitally recreate her character. During the panel Johnson shared photos with the audience that he had taken of the cast - including the late Carrie Fisher and her daughter Billie Lourd - from behind the scenes. Just like Finn in The Force Awakens trailer, in fact. She was a writer, as well, and she did it well. She was able to drop the first breadcrumbs of where her character Rey goes next.
The brief teaser doesn't give away much, but it does provide glimpses of the ongoing war between the Resistance and the First Order as well as the apparent Jedi training of Daisy Ridley's Rey. "It's time for the Jedi to end".
Fighting to remained composed through her tearjerking speech, Lourd finished by reciting her mother's iconic message to Obi-Wan Kenobi before Celebration revealed the tribute montage above. "It's time for the Jedi to end", a silhouetted Skywalker ominously says at the end of the trailer. But I think he's an important part to the overall arc of the saga and again, there's a lot of mystery about him, even within the film.
He continued: "It was created to be a film that told young people, 'This is what we stand for.' You're 12 years old".
It also appears to give a short glimpse from behind of the late actress Carrie Fisher, who filmed a reprise of her role as Princess Leia before her death past year.
