That's not all - there's a super tiny clip of Rey as well!

UPDATE: Looks like we got hosed. Turns out this "teaser" is nothing more than a fake, fan-made clip. We've heard from several people who attended Disney's D23 event, and they say this was nothing like what was really shown. We'll leave the video below incase anyone is still curious to see it, but just know it's 100% not real.

Rumbles about the project first surfaced back in 2013, but the rumored writer and producers at that time are no longer in play.
