The annual shareholders meeting for The Walt Disney Company took place today in Denver and the first piece of Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage was screened for those in attendance.
CEO Bob Iger revealed the clip, which picks up from the final moments of Star Wars: The Force Awakens as Rey hands Luke Skywalker his lightsaber. The LA Times reports the clip sees Luke finally deliver a line of dialogue though, asking Rey “Who are you?” before taking back his weapon.
Additional pieces of Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage were revealed that included Chewbacca, General Leia Organa, and Finn; as well as various settings (mountains, oceans, forests, deserts), and a clip of “an X-wing wobbling mid-air, under attack inside a giant ship.”
