Watch 'The Last Jedi' trailer as Hamill explains the fate of Princess Leia



Are you overwhelmed or underwhelmed by the official trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi? I'll admit I got a little chocked up seeing Carrie Fisher again.

Mark Hamill, at the New York Comic Con on Saturday, explained how the actress' death has affected the franchise's plot.

"You’re going to really love her in (The Last Jedi)," Hamill said, according to a USA Today report. "I know they’re going to try and find a way to close her story in (Episode) 9 that gives her the respect she deserves, because (Han Solo) was more prominent in 7 (The Force Awakens), Luke’s a little more prominent in 8, and certainly Leia was meant to be more prominent in 9."

"Worldwide, everyone feels that gap she left," he added. "But we all have to hang in there."
