What can we learn from this first official release from the production? Though it's blurry, it appears to feature John Boyega in character as Finn in the Millennium Falcon. Controversy surrounding the fan outcry over The Last Jedi, as well as the dissapointing box office numbers for Solo: A Star Wars Story, have had some fans wondering how J.J. Abrams is going to pull off the finale of the latest trilogy in the franchise. Billy Dee Williams will return to reprise his role as Lando Calrissian, while Anthony Daniels will return as C-3PO. Although Kathleen Kennedy previously said that Fisher wouldn't be part of Episode IX, the movie is confirmed to use previously shot footage from The Force Awakens for Leia's swansong.

"Star Wars: Episode IX" director J.J. Abrams shared the first photo from the movie set, and paid tribute to the late Carrie Fisher on Twitter Wednesday. Abrams was then lured back to finish what he started, and he began from scratch, co-writing the script with Oscar-winning Argo screenwriter and Batman v Superman co-writer Chris Terrio.
