Disney shareholders were treated to some top secret footage Wednesday.

New footage from Star Wars: The Last Jedi was shown, with Los Angeles Times reporter Daniel Miller sharing details on Twitter.

The footage shows Luke (Mark Hamill) asking Rey (Daisy Ridley) who she is, as she hands him his long lost lightsaber. Other characters who appear include Chewbacca, General Leia Organa (Carrie Fisher) and Finn (John Boyega).

[Yahoo Movies ed. note: In the Los Angeles Times report on the Disney shareholders’ meeting, Hero Complex editor Meredith Woerner writes that “Iger described The Last Jedi as ‘a perfect chapter in the iconic Skywalker family drama.’ ” We’ll get behind her assessment of that particular tease: “all you “Who’s Rey’s father?” conspiracy theorists, consider your flame officially fanned.”]

This is technically the second bit of footage shown from The Last Jedi, after a February 2016 production announcement video picked up after the last scene of Force Awakens. Here’s more from Miller:

Rian Johnson directs the film, which includes Star Wars: The Force Awakens cast members Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, and Andy Serkis. New to the franchise this time around are Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, and Kelly Marie Tran.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is set to hit theaters Dec. 15.
