This, of course, included everything from the world of Disney from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, to Marvel's Studios' upcoming slate, to animated fare like the forthcoming Coco and Frozen 2, and even Mary Poppins Returns, which debuts on Christmas Day, 2018.

Hamill, best known as Luke Skywalker in the "Star Wars" franchise, said he still thinks of Carrie Fisher like she is alive. This included looks at a variety of the film's amazingly colourful locations and alien creatures, as well as shots of some great looking set pieces. In the poster featuring Rey, she's holding the hilt of the lightsaber she picked up in The Force Awakens, the one that used to belong to Luke before he got his hand chopped of on Cloud City in The Empire Strikes Back.

All of these are stuff with all kinds of details (is that facility filled with bacta tanks in the beginning?!) that fans will no doubt be poring over in the days to come to try and discern all The Last Jedi's secrets.

Highlights from the sizzle reel include the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia, a first look at Laura Dern's new character and director Rian Johnson (Breaking Bad) making adorable Wookie sounds. Oh those Mon Calamari!

Fans of the hero of the Star Wars saga were a little disappointed to find that Luke Skywalker appeared only a few seconds at the end of the Revival of the Force, but they can now reassure themselves, Luke will play a crucial role in The Last Jedi And we proved it with the trailer of the next Star Wars.

"'The last Jedi' is tied up in [Luke and Rey's] story". New cast members will include Academy Award victor Benicio Del Toro, Academy Award nominee Laura Dern, and newcomer Kelly Marie Tran as Rose.
