The cast and director of 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' paid tribute to Carrie Fisher during their promotional news conference in Tokyo on December 7.
The latest installment in the franchise picks up where the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' left off, with the mysterious force-wielding Rey (Daisy Ridley) coming face-to-face with the central Jedi of the original trilogy, Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill).
Returning to the franchise are John Boyega as Finn, the late Carrie Fisher as Leia, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Andy Serkis as the menacing Snoke and Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, alongside some of the more quirky characters in the franchise, C-3PO, R2-D2, BB8 and Chewbacca.
Director Rian Johnson and Hamill said Fisher, who died at age 60 last year, gave a beautiful performance in the film, and said they hope fans would enjoy her final film appearance as the beloved Leia.
The film debuts in theaters on December 14.
