Mark Hamill: Carrie Fisher Star Wars tribute is 'therapy'

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.

The Force Awakens ended with Rey and Skywalker meeting on a remote island. After all, Fisher will only be featured in "Star Wars: Episode VIII - The Last Jedi".

Johnson paid his own tribute to Fisher - who had a career parallel to her acting as a writer and highly regarded script editor - revealing that she helped him with much of the dialogue.

In addition, the teaser shows numerous previous film's heroes and villains in action, including Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac), General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver).

The appearance marked Billie's first official return to the spotlight following the loss of her mother and grandmother Debbie Reynolds, who died just one day after Carrie.

The actress won't be recreated digitally, but unfortunately, that also means Leia Organa won't be a part of the story.

Well, the rumors of Leia and Carrie Fisher being a part of Episode IX were put to rest. You can also find photos of the panel (Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios), including a new photo of Luke Skywalker in the sequel, below. Fisher completed her work in the film before her untimely death on December 27 a year ago. He added, "She's not a soldier, she's not looking to be a hero".

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is scheduled to hit screens on December 15. With that said, here is everything we learned about Star Wars: The Last Jedi at Star Wars Celebration.

Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed that Carrie Fisher won't be in "Star Wars Episode IX", despite recent reports that they would bring back the actress' character of General Leia. I'm thinking "no" because it's a holiday weekend but you never know, it could very well catch up.

At the end, Luke has a foreboding message: "It's time for the Jedi to end".
