Our panel selection is such a personal process, and the choices we make often reflect who we are not only as Star Wars fans, but as people as well. It is entirely possible that it is just the same model as her parents, but there have been talks of J.J. Abrams retconning what Rian Johnson did with Rey's parents in The Last Jedi.

Cast members Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, and Adam Driver are all returning to reprise the characters they first began playing in "The Force Awakens".

"The thing I think about all the time is the responsibility we have", Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy said during the panel. "We all just loved her. the weird miracle of having a number of scenes from "Force Awakens" that were unused". Disney has yet to announce a roadmap for the future of "Star Wars" films. Joining the cast are Naomi Ackie (Doctor Who), Richard E. Grant (Logan), Dominic Monaghan (Lord of the Rings), Matt Smith (Doctor Who) and Keri Russell (The Americans), who will also be joined by veteran Star Wars actors Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Billy Dee Williams, who will reprise his role as Lando Calrissian. Will we learn that Rey is not, in fact, nobody but actually a Skywalker/Solo/Kenobi/Palpatine/Jinn of some kind?

There will undoubtedly be plenty more teasers and trailers and info dumps in the weeks and months to come, but the beginning of the end of the Skywalker saga has finally begun. And the insane thing is, every day it hits me that she's not here, but it's so surreal because we're working with her in scenes.

In America, we also support the idea of individualism, and many consider vaccinations a personal choice. Almost 83 000 people contracted measles in Europe in 2018, the highest number in a decade.

IX will feature a live Princess Leia, played by Carrie Fisher, even though she died in 2016, director JJ Abrams shared on Friday. In it, she called the upcoming film, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as the culmination of the Skywalker Saga but not the end of Star Wars by any means. Yet, "this is an adventure the group goes on together". For the answer, we will have to wait for the release of the film. The company unveiled the film's title at a fan event in Chicago on Friday.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker is scheduled for a December 20 release.

Several topics got covered over the next few minutes of the panel, including a first look at Ackie's character, which you can see in Kristian Harloff's tweet below.
