Star Wars fans have had a behind-the-scenes look at the franchise's next instalment in a clip from the shoot of The Last Jedi.

Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro were some of the cast who took to the stage at Disney's D23 Expo at Anaheim Convention Center in California on Saturday to talk about the forthcoming film.

Fans were expecting a new trailer for the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi but instead were shown behind-the-scenes footage that included scenes with the late Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia.

"It's all about family, that's what's so powerful about it," Fisher said of the film in interviews taped before her sudden death in December.

Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker, said the new film had "so many unexpected elements, which is great in a 'Star Wars' film because it's getting harder and harder to bring new things to the table."
