Carrie Fisher's General Leia will also appear, after it was confirmed the film won't be altered to tackle her passing in December of last year; it's been confirmed Leia will also feature in Episode IX, reportedly utilising scenes filmed for The Last Jedi.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits UK cinemas 15 December.
