The video has not yet been made available but during the event it was described below by those in attendance with ComicBook.com listening in live. Based on descriptions of the footage from Los Angeles Times reporter Daniel Miller, the footage seems to have been assembled into a kind of sizzle reel. It begins with a joke involving Rey handing Luke a lightsaber, a fun play on the final scene of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
The actual footage included Luke asking Rey, “Who are you?” Rey’s response is a flourish of lightsaber swings, showing off her skilled handling of the weapon. Other characters shown in the footage include Chewbacca, Leia, and Finn, and there were also several shots of new locations with a variety of landscapes and climates. There was also some footage of a damaged X-Wing flying through a larger ship.

Also making appearances in "The Last Jedi" footage: Chewbacca, General Leia Organa and Finn.— Daniel Miller (@DanielNMiller) March 8, 2017
One last thing on the "Last Jedi" footage: We saw all sorts of settings -- mountains, oceans, forests, deserts. Look suitably epic, exotic.— Daniel Miller (@DanielNMiller) March 8, 2017
More on "The Last Jedi" clip: We saw a shot of an X-wing wobbling mid-air, under attack inside a giant ship. Looked like a wounded bird.— Daniel Miller (@DanielNMiller) March 8, 2017
