Disney has unleashed a thrilling behind-the-scenes reel for Star Wars: The Last Jedi

The footage was debuted by director Rian Johnson at this weekend's Disney’s D23 expo. Until now, the movie has been shrouded in mystery, with some considering it the most secretive Star Wars release of the internet era.

Clocking in at just under three minutes, audiences are given a look at the casino planet of Canto Bight and its weird, if not wonderful, citizens. Laura Dern’s mysterious new character, Resistance Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, is introduced, while there are also contributions from familiar cast members such as John Boyaga and Daisy Ridley. Carrie Fisher, who died in December, also makes an emotional appearance, describing the movie as a "family affair."

Watch the teaser above, and then check out a Star Wars cast highlights reel from The Graham Norton Show below. The movie hits theaters December 15.
