"No one is ever really gone", says the voice of Luke Skywalker in the first teaser trailer for "Star Wars: Episode IX", which audiences finally learned will be called "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" Friday at a fan event in Chicago. We all just loved her.

The cast of the new movie is led by Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, and Keri Russell. After the main sequence ends with Rey and Kylo Ren, we're shown a bunch of scenes, including Ren fixing up his helmet, pieces of the Death Star, Lando, Leia, and a lot more.

While Fisher died in December 2016, director J.J. Abrams revealed at her character is still alive for The Rise of Skywalker and that previously unused footage of her from The Force Awakens will be used.

Many of them undoubtedly spent time at the office they should've spent, well, working playing and replaying the roughly two-minute clip, pouring over every scene looking for clues about what to expect and the meaning of the movie's title, "The Rise of Skywalker".

(Lucasfilm Ltd. ) Daisy Ridley stars in Lucasfilm's, "Star Wars: The Last Jedi".

The largest ovations came for Kelly Marie Tran, who portrays mechanic Rose Tico, and Billy Dee Williams, who returns to the saga as the con artist Lando Calrissian. I was pretty emotional from the panel leading into it and then when the trailer kicked off I was just so thrilled.

The duo spoke about this movie being the absolute final movie in the Skywalker saga, finishing the run of Luke and Leia that Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher started more than 40 years ago.

The shot opens with Rey and we hear a voiceover giving her strength, soon she lights up her saber. And they did show a teaser trailer for Episode IX, which now officially has the name The Rise of Skywalker. But I think when you see the movie, you'll see how it's intended, what it means.

Rian Johnson admitted to changing up some of the ideas J.J. Abrams and crew had for Rey's parents when he made The Last Jedi. "This is an adventure that the group goes on together", he is quoted in The Hollywood Reporter as saying.

Abrams confirmed that they're still editing and doing visual effects on the film, but the use of practical effects - as seen in The Force Awakens - is still integral to the heart of the storytelling.

However, Disney's attempts at "Star Wars" spin-off films have been less successful.
