Watch the Star Wars: The Force Awakens Trailer!
There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?
The day has finally come… the first teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens is here, and it may or may not be everything you wanted and more in life. Spouse? Unnecessary. Children? Distractions. All you really need is some new Star Wars footage. Watch it now:
Somewhat surprisingly, at least to me, is there wasn’t a single shot of a returning cast member. I thought there’d at least be a money shot of Luke Skywalker or Han Solo somewhere in there… but oh well. What there is, however, is plenty of Star Wars action, complete with a very distressed stormtrooper who pops into frame like something out of a horror movie, more stormtroopers who are preparing for battle, a sinister-looking Jedi with one badass-looking lightsaber, some X-Wings doing a fly-by and, of course, the Millennium Falcon taking on a couple of TIE fighters.
Also, only one slightly noticeable instance of lens flare, director J.J. Abrams’ favorite!
Here are some photos from the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer for you to feast your eyes on:
Here’s John Boyega looking very distressed, perhaps because he realized he dressed inappropriately for the desert.
This R2 unit looks like he’s riding on top of a soccer ball.
These Storm Troopers are getting ready for an innocent game of laser tag.
Daisy Ridley looks like she needs to get somewhere in a hurry. When you’ve got to go, you’ve got to go.
Oscar Isaac is flying an X-Wing!
These X-Wing pilots know they are flying spaceships, right? Spaceships…
This presumable Sith Lord has a very cool-looking lightsaber. I also question whether it’s good to have that stuff coming out of the sides… seems like you could easily impale yourself or cut off a hand or something.
And naturally, the Millennium Falcon is still clunking around the galaxy, taking on TIE fighters. Good to see that technology has progressed significantly since the fall of the Empire… assuming the Empire has indeed fallen.
