As is typical for Star Wars films, the plot of the Rian Johnson directed movie is shrouded in secrecy. The film sees Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley and Adam Driver reprise their roles from The Force Awakens in a story that picks up right where J.J. Abrams’ movie left off. This will be the last film to star the late Carrie Fisher.
Here is the very brief synopsis for the movie:
