"And in the case of the LGBTQ community, it was important to me that people who go to see this movie feel that they're being represented in the film", Abrams said.

It's a bit heartbreaking because we're now seeing the press tour kick up for the movie without Carrie Fisher for the second time, and it's going to be hard to watch as we say goodbye to these new characters, as well as Leia Organa.

"I get to join my friends this time and you really get to see the interaction with the three", Isaac said.
