Star Wars: The Last Jedi trailer features Carrie Fisher

The late Carrie Fisher returns to her role of Princess Leia for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, as seen in a brand new trailer for the saga which debuted on Monday. 

In the trailer, the actress, who died at age 60 last year, looks fearful and deep in contemplation as it’s suggested her on-screen son, Kylo Ren (Adam Driver), is considering blowing up her ship.

‘Let the past die,’ Kylo’s voice can be heard as he hurtles through an outer space war zone. ‘Kill it, if you have to.’

‘That’s the only way you’ll become what you’re meant to be,’ he adds. 

Kylo appears apprehensive as he weighs his options before placing his thumb on the trigger. 

The scene cuts back to Leia, as she stands in anticipation. 

Kylo had already killed his father, Han Solo, in the last installment of the sci-fi saga, The Force Awakens.

The trailer’s ending, however, ends on a truly suspenseful note that will leave fans on the edge of their seats.  

In a major twist of events, it’s implied Ren (played by Daisy Ridley) considers going to the dark side. 

‘I need someone to show me my place in all this,’ she tells Kylo.
