LOS ANGELES (AP) — Disney’s Lucasfilm has released a new trailer for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” the second installment in the sequel trilogy to the original films that hits theaters in December.

Parts of the trailer pick up where 2015’s “The Force Awakens” leaves off with protagonist Rey, played by Daisy Ridley, learning from Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker on a remote island. The two-and-a-half minute clip also features Carrie Fisher in her role as Princess Leia. Fisher completed her work on the film before her death last December.

A new movie poster was also released Monday, featuring a cloaked Skywalker above a group of characters centered by Leia.

Director Rian Johnson thanked fans on Twitter for their patience for the highly-anticipated follow up, adding that he’s “so proud” of the film.
