Hamill, whose Jedi knight character Luke Skywalker is expected to return as a principal role in the next film, says the fan support is overwhelming.
The movie stars were on hand during the 2017 Star Wars Celebration at the Orange County Convention Center.
But this is just one out-of-context line in a teaser we do see Luke giving the film's protagonist Rey some traditional Jedi training, after all. Starring in the next chapter are Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Mark Hamill, Oscar Isaac, John Boyega, Domhnall Gleeson, Gwendoline Christie, Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern, Andy Serkis, Billie Lourd, Anthony Daniels, Lupita Nyong'o, Peter Mayhew, Warwick Davis and the late Carrie Fisher.
The next installment The Last Jedi is due out in December. It's a quick five minutes but it highlights Fisher's role as Leia and the impact she had on her costars. "But we will see a lot of Carrie in VIII". I'm not the only part in that equation, but I think the people deserve to have her. We have to get that into the movie.
Borini gives Sunderland lifeline by clinching West Ham draw
The West Ham manager was quoted as saying by the BBC: " We are disappointed to concede a late goal ". The Sunderland equaliser was a odd affair when Wahbi Khazri scored direct from a corner kick.
"Sadly, Carrie will not be in nine", she confirmed.
A new poster of the movie has also been released, offering an awesome look at Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren and Rey.
"When I think of her, she's looking down from the celestial stratosphere with that sly smile on her face, as she lovingly extends me the middle finger", Hamill said.
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy tells EW the story team and filmmakers have come up with a plan for how to handle Fisher's absence in 2019's planned Star Wars: Episode IX.
Phil Jackson says Carmelo Anthony is 'better off somewhere else'
The relationship between Anthony and Jackson has been strained and it's better for all parties involved to part ways and move on. Whatever Melo chooses to do, I'm sure he will be happier nearly anywhere else than under the reign of Phil Jackson at this point.
The famed actress passed away in December 2016 after suffering from a heart attack on board a flight, but will appear as Princess Leia in the The Last Jedi, as filming wrapped just a few months before she died. In other words: Force Awakens was about the rise of new heroes, while The Last Jedi will see those heroes fall, in some form or fashion.
The original "Star Wars" opened on May 25, 1977. I feel like that's what's happened with Carrie.
In an ominous final note in the teaser, Skywalker declares that it is "time for the Jedi to end".
