Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer brings back late Carrie Fisher

Star Wars fans have been given a glimpse of what is in store for them in December following the release of the trailer for the next film in the space saga.

A little over two minutes of footage from Star Wars: The Last Jedi has now been released.

It stars Mark Hamill, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac, as well as the late Carrie Fisher.

Fisher's character, General Leia Organa, will not appear in the final episode of the new trilogy, set to debut in 2019, which suggests The Last Jedi will feature her final moments.

Directed by Rian Johnon, the movie opens in UK cinemas on 14 December and tickets are already on sale.

Johnson recently warned fans via Twitter that those wanting to go into the theater "clean" should "absolutely avoid" watching the new clip.

He then appeared to have changed his mind, writing: "FORGET EVERYTHING I SAID AND WATCH IT WATCH IT WATCH IT".

Star Wars: The Last Jedi follows on from the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the most successful film of all time in the UK.
