Mark Hamill: Carrie Fisher Star Wars Tribute is 'Therapy'

In "The Force Awakens", Adam Driver's Kylo Ren has turned to the dark side after being tutored by Luke.

Kathleen told ABC News that Todd was "confused", but Carrie would feature heavily in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, due out in December (17).

Do you think Luke goes dark in The Last Jedi?

Hamill - a central figure in the original trilogy - told the crowd it was a pleasure to be able to enjoy the prequel films and last year's Rogue One spin-off without the pressure of actually having to carry them. "A small amount", said Ridley, laughing. "What do you see?" says a mysterious male voice as the camera focuses on a breathless Rey (Daisy Ridley) on her hands and knees beneath a cliff face.

"We'd have these stream-of-consciousness jazz poetry ad-lib sessions and I would just scribble on my script everything she said". She said the film will go "deep" into Rey's story and reveal how it can be hard meeting your heroes - presumably alluding to a cranky Skywalker.

"The Force Awakens" director and "Last Jedi" producer J.J. Abrams has previously hailed Hamill's performance in the film, suggesting it could land him an Oscar nomination. "We'll see a lot of her in VIII, which is great".

It was also teased that season four of Rebels will include a few new story ties to Rogue One, and Filoni revealed that another character from the now non-canon Expanded Universe will appearing on the show, voiced by Star Wars actor Warwick Davis.

"Sadly, Carrie will not be in (Episode) Nine", Kennedy said.

The move is the latest by Disney to broaden the male-dominated audience for the "Star Wars" series, which is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the original 1977 film starring Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill.
