While secrets and spoilers surrounding Star Wars: Episode VIII -- The Last Jedi have been difficult to come by for even the most devoted fan, Disney shareholders got treated to a screening of some closely guarded footage on Wednesday, and details have begun to emerge.

Los Angeles Times reporter Daniel Miller took to Twitter to share his account of what was featured in the footage -- including appearances by John Boyega as Finn and Chewbacca, and a flash of "an X-wing wobbling mid-air, under attack inside a giant ship."

Miller also revealed a brief exchange between Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) following the cliffhanger ending of The Force Awakens, where the two meet at the top of a mountain.

"Luke asks Rey, 'Who are you?' Then we see her deftly handle a lightsaber," Miller wrote.

Footage of the late Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa was also shown, but Miller explained that she "was onscreen for just a second in military garb and didn't speak."

Among other innocuous revelations, Miller tweeted, "We saw all sorts of settings -- mountains, oceans, forests, deserts. Look suitably epic, exotic."

All things considered, the revelations all seem like pretty standard and expected fare for the sci-fi franchise -- after all, Disney isn't going to risk giving away any real spoilers -- but the tiny tidbits are more than enough to get fans even more excited than they already were.
