The trailer made it’s first debut during the Star Wars Celebration event in Chicago. Director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy were on hand to make the announcement on Friday.
Episode IX will feature posthumous footage of Carrie Fisher, with Billy Dee Williams also returning as Lando Calrissian along with Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo Anthony Daniels, and newcomer Naomi Ackie.
The trailer opens much like “The Force Awakens” trailer with Rey panting in the desert before Mark Hamill’s voice tells her, “We’ve passed on all we know. A thousand generations live in you now. But this is your fight.” She then whips out a lightsaber, one that appears to be Luke’s.
