Star Wars fans rejoice! The latest (of what is sure to be a lot) teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Episode 7) has arrived, and boy does it look good. Not just that, but it’s brought with a a great collection of promo images that reveal plenty more about J.J. Abrams latest installment in the legendary Star Wars franchise. There are some MASSIVE movies coming out this year, and it’s remarkable that with The Avengers: Age Of Ultron coming out in a matter of weeks, that might not actually be the biggest. Star Wars: The Force Awakens is bound to break all kinds of records.
The latest trailer is far less mysterious, much longer and full of old faces as well as the new ones we were introduced to in the first spot. We start thing off hearing the voice of Luke Skywalker, telling what we believe is his child that she has the same force that he, his father Darth Vader and his sister Leia have. Then we get a look at Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) expertly piloting an X-Wing, followed by shots of the young newcomers John Boyega and Daisey Ridley as Stormtrooper Finn and Rey. We then see a glimpse of Leia and the latest Star Wars Sith Lord, Kylo Ren who is a much sleeker, more modern looking villain. We get to see R2-D2 and finally, we are treated to Han Solo and Chewbacca declaring that they’re home.
Home, indeed. It’s exciting stuff folks. It’s only a trailer, but it looks like there is every indication that J.J. Abrams and Lucas Films will not be disappointing us. One can only imagine how packed the theaters are going to be, and sales of the original 6 movies are bound to spike over the next six months. If Abrams is able to deliver it will be a genuinely remarkable feat, because he will have resurrected the two biggest science fiction franchises of all time, and lived up to expectations in both cases.
There’s plenty more questions to be answered, and certainly more to be revealed, and we’re definitely going to be seeing more and more Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailers and photos over the coming months. For now, check out some of these awesome photos below.
