The short trailer picks up where Star Wars Episode VII, The Force Awakens, left off.

It shows Daisy Ridley’s character, Rey training with a blue lightsabre instead of her staff.

Rey’s original plan was to deliver Luke Skywalker his lightsabre and bring him back home.

However, in the new scene, Rey is seen exercising her powers with the Jedi weapon on a cliff while Skywalker watches on in the distance.

American Star Wars fans were treated to the second teaser on Good Morning America.
