WATCH: New 'Star Wars' trailer debuts, called 'The Rise of Skywalker'
CHICAGO (AP) - No one is ever really gone, says Luke Skywalker in the first teaser for "Star Wars: Episode IX," which fans got a first look at Friday at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago.
The short spot also revealed the title to the final chapter in the Skywalker saga will be "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker."
The voice of Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker provided the narration for the teaser, with a voice telling Daisy Ridley's Rey that the knowledge of a thousand generations has been passed on. He added that this is her fight now.
Audiences also got to see a glimpse of the return of Billy Dee Williams' Lando Calrissian and Carrie Fisher's Leia Organa.
The trailer ends with the ominous laughter of an old but familiar villain: Emperor Palpatine from the original and prequel trilogies.
