Oscar Isaac, John Boyega and Daisy Ridley joined director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy on stage Thursday to regal the rapt audience with plans for the highly anticipated film that hits theaters on Dec. 18.

Kennedy said Harrison Ford, who recently was involved in a plane crash, was home and mending.
