Star Wars: The Last Jedi footage has been screened for a select audience, offering a look at Rey's story in the upcoming sequel.

Disney held its annual shareholders meeting in Denver where it showed off footage from The Last Jedi, previewing what happens immediately after the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. According to Los Angeles Times reporter Daniel Miller, the new clips shows Rey handing Luke his lightsaber while he asks Rey, "Who are you?"

Other characters also appeared in the screened footage, including Chewbacca, Finn, and General Leia, but Miller did not offer specific context for how they appear. Miller also said the footage jumped to a number of settings, from oceans to forests, deserts, and mountain ranges.

Walt Disney Co.'s chairman and chief executive Bob Iger was in attendance and described The Last Jedi as "a perfect chapter in the iconic Skywalker family drama."

Iger also paid tribute to the late Carrie Fisher, saying she has been an iconic part in this franchise from the very beginning," and that Disney and Lucasfilm will miss her "great talent and wit."

The Last Jedi opens in theaters on December 15, 2017.
