Star Wars 8: First Look At General Leia Revealed At Celebration

Carrie Fisher as General Leia in Star Wars The Force Awakens

The first real look at General Leia Organa in Star Wars: The Last Jedi was revealed during the Star Wars 40th Anniversary Panel at Celebration 2017. This year's convention got off to a rousing start as numerous people from the galaxy far, far away (including George Lucas and Harrison Ford in surprise appearances) came together to reflect on four decades of one of the most iconic pop culture phenomenons. It was a rather emotional experience for fans, ending with a touching and heartfelt tribute to the late Carrie Fisher.

Fisher, who tragically passed away in late 2016, will appear once more as her iconic character Leia Organa in The Last Jedi in what is reportedly a larger role when compared to The Force Awakens. With Episode VIII featuring many moving parts, several viewers are curious to see how the Resistance general fits into the narrative, which is not going to be altered to address Fisher's death. Moviegoers are going to have to wait until at least the first Star Wars 8 trailer to get a better idea of that, but for now, a new image of Fisher in-costume has been revealed.

The video tribute to Fisher that premiered at the end of the 40th Anniversary panel included a glimpse of the actress on the Last Jedi set with writer/director Rian Johnson. Star Wars News Net was able to snag a screen shot and shared it on social media. You can see the picture below:
