Debuting at the Star Wars panel, this is viewers’ first new look at The Galaxy Far, Far, Away since the second trailer debuted in April.

Presenting the video was director J.J. Abrams, writer Lawrence Kasdan, and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy, who unveiled the new footage before a live audience.
