Whatever the case, while the tone of The Last Jedi seems less than optimistic, Star Wars fans are hyped. Though there weren't any shots with Luke on Rey's back, it can be surmised by the trailer that dagobah esque training sequences will make up a fair bit of the film between the two.

Kennedy explained that Fisher had already completed shooting her scenes for Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the time of her death last December.
"Obviously, with Carrie having passed away, it shook everybody", she said. The film also features returning stars John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels, Lupita Nyong'o Mark Hamill, and Carrie Fisher. The footage was revealed during The Last Jedi panel at Star Wars Celebration and, while it may not have answered all of our burning questions, the trailer delivered a whole lot for us to pick apart and try and figure out. The excitement was palpable, and the emotions ran high as we finally got a real taste of what we can expect from "The Last Jedi" come December. Carrie was a significant part of that story - that was something she very much wanted and we very much wanted. After all, she's a huge part of this franchise and to conclude the sequel trilogy without her just feels wrong.
