Harrison Ford visit, Fisher tribute launch Star Wars event

The film is set to release on December 15, 2017.

"Breathe. Just breathe", Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker says opening the trailer, nearly as if speaking to the millions of fans watching online.

"From Princess Leia to Sabine Wren, Star Wars heroines are unique, and we wanted to represent that in the product line for Star Wars Forces of Destiny", said Jimmy Pitaro, chairman of Disney's consumer products and interactive media division.

Meanwhile, every year the fans gather for a Star Wars celebration where all their Star Wars dreams come true.

"I'm not supposed to say this", Lucas half-jokingly smirked. We all know you're skipping it just to click play anyway. "I wanted to be here with you because I know you feel the same way", Lourd told the audience, USA Today reports.

Johnson said the movie, scheduled for release in December, is still in post production. "He writes amazingly fierce and independent women", said Kennedy.

For "Star Wars" super fans, most of the behind the scenes stories told were as well-known as the stories in the actual films - from the fact that Lucas' inspiration for Chewbacca was his dog in to the actors' problems with Lucas' fanciful and technical dialogue. Harrison Ford charmingly said he felt that the story of Star Wars was "intelligent" and that his involvement with the franchise has been "a good ride".

They shortly made way for Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, to join them on stage as she wore a very Princess Leia-esque white dress. "She's not looking to be a hero, and she gets pulled in a very big way into an adventure with Finn... she's pretty rad".

The last two films in the "Star Wars" galaxy, 2015's "The Force Awakens" and last year's "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story", were the highest-grossing films in consecutive years.

While Liam Neeson could not be present for Celebration, so the Qui-Gon Jinn actor recorded a special video message that also trolled fans with his top-secret project.
