The voice of Mark Hamill's Luke Skywalker provided the narration for the teaser, with a voice telling Daisy Ridley's Rey that the knowledge of a thousand generations has been passed on. He added that this is her fight now.

Audiences also got to see a glimpse of the return of Billy Dee Williams' Lando Calrissian and Carrie Fisher's Leia Organa.

The trailer ends with the ominous laughter of an old but familiar villain: Emperor Palpatine from the original and prequel trilogies.
