& # 39; The character of Leia is, in a way, really the heart of this story, & # 39; he said. & # 39; We realized that we couldn't possibly tell the end of these nine films without Leia.

& # 39; We realized that we had footage from episode VII and that we could use it in a new way & he said.

Carrie died of a heart attack on December 27, 2016, four days after a medical emergency during a flight from London to Los Angeles.

Daisy and several other cast members were at the event to debut the new content.

There is also a first look at the mysterious nature of Keri Russell.

The suit featured a helmet and a red suit. Keri said to the audience: & # 39; She is very cool and a bit shady. She is a kind of criminal and an old friend of Poe & # 39; played by Oscar Isaac.

The cast also includes Lupita Nyong’o and Domhnall Gleeson along with franchise newcomer Richard E. Grant.

Original Star Wars actors, including Mark Hamill (Luke Skywalker), Anthony Daniels (C-3PO) and Billy Dee Williams (Lando Calrissian) will return.

Directed and co-written by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker comes to the cinema on December 20.
