D23 Expo was an exciting experience for Star Wars fans, with a behind-the-scenes reel featuring new footage from the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi and LucasFilm releasing a series of breathtaking character posters. Check it all out below.

Footage from the set shows droids being prepped, some space crafts are parked.

“Ryan has written a story that’s unexpected but right,” Ridley said of Last Jedi being part of a trilogy (Rey hands Luke the lightsaber in an emotional moments), but “It feels like its own thing,” Ridley said.

The footage includes Stormtroopers preparing for choreography, Johnson making Wookie sounds with Chewbacca and Rey running with new lightsaber. Benicio Del Toro i seen standing in his ship and Rey is battling a group in another. Laura Dern can be seen in a quick shot – yes, she has purple hair.

“It’s about family, and that’s what’s so powerful about it,” Carrie Fisher said.

General Ackbar it out, shown at the very end: “It’s a wrap.”
