Why Rose should be your new favorite Star Wars character

Pre-order customers, meanwhile, will receive Star Wars: The Last Jedi heroes, which presumably means they'll be able to play as characters from the new film. "But we'll see a lot of her in 'Eight, ' which is great".

"Sadly, Carrie will not be in nine", she confirmed.

The latest "Star Wars" installment is set to hit theaters everywhere near this year's holiday season, on December 15.

Todd told New York Daily News earlier this month that he and Carrie's daughter, Billie Lourd, had given Disney and Lucasfilm permission to use footage from The Last Jedi in the as yet untitled Episode IX, due out in 2019.

It is time for the Jedi to end!

Daisy Ridley came out on the stage, and after some hilarious questions from Josh Gad about her character's identity, she said, "I can say that in The Last Jedi, we go deeper into Rey's story".

Obviously we don't know her backstory yet, but her elevation to a character major enough to share the stage with Luke, Finn and Rey feels like a major statement.

"The Force Awakens" director and "Last Jedi" producer J.J. Abrams has previously hailed Hamill's performance in the film, suggesting it could land him an Oscar nomination. Three years later, the company announced plans for new 14-acre Star Wars "lands" at both its Orlando and Anaheim, California, parks, capitalizing on the lucrative brand much as Universal Studios did at its Orlando parks with the Harry Potter phenomenon.

This will include Star Wars Battlefront 2 2017, as well as other titles that have yet to be formally unveiled. Yet as Rey undergoes her awakening, could she to be awakening a listless Luke?

"When I think of her now, I think of her looking from the celestial stratosphere with her big brown eyes and that wry smile and... she lovingly extends a middle finger".

Even Rogue One, which promised to deliver Star Wars from the average soldier's perspective - Saving Private Ryan in space, Lucasfilm called it - had plenty of aristocratic attitude.
