The movie stars were on hand during the 2017 Star Wars Celebration at the Orange County Convention Center.

"The Last Jedi" picks off where "The Force Awakens" left off, with Rey (Ridley) meeting Luke on a remote island, filmed off the coast of Ireland. Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrives in theaters on December 15.

Much ado was made of the possibility that Princess General Leia would live on digitally, thanks to the use of posthumous character recreation in Rogue One and to comments from those close to the project. The trailer also has a shot of Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, of the Resistance being attacked by the First Order and of the Millenium Falcon flying.

We've just gotten our first look at "The Last Jedi". "She went from being an unknown actress, the daughter of Debbie Reynolds and Eddie Fisher, to Princess Leia...

I was present for the reveal of the "Chewie, we're home" trailer during Star Wars Celebration 2015, and it was an honor to be there again this year. "It's time for the Jedi to end".

While the internet may be a buzz over the new Star Wars trailer, another video dropped that will get you right in the feels.
