A world-first trailer released at the convention – and dropped on the internet – reintroduced the "next generation" characters from the final three films alongside old favourites from as far back as the 1977 original, "Star Wars IV: A New Hope."
Carrie Fisher, Star Wars' princess Leia, will be featured in the next movie, "Star Wars: Episode IX" using footage she recorded before her death, Walt Disney Co. studio said.
The new Star Wars movie "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is the the eighth installment of the blockbuster space saga. Writer and director Rian Johnson said it is up to the makers of the 2019 movie to decide if they will change Leia's story.
Carrie Fisher had been in intensive care after suffering a heart attack on a flight from London to the United States on Friday.
