Say goodbye to your afternoon, and hello to the new Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens trailer
You didn’t have anything important going on today, right? No work or family obligations? No? Great! Go ahead and check out the new Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens trailer.
Then go ahead and watch it again and again and again, just like I did.
The trailer debuted as part of the Star Wars Celebration, which is currently underway in LA, and runs from April 16-19. There will probably be a few other The Force Awakens surprises on the way, along with plenty of other bits of Star Wars-y goodness, like a look at the upcoming Electronic Arts game, Star Wars: Battlefront.
The Force Awakens takes place roughly 30 years after the events of Return of the Jedi and – OH MY GOD IS THAT A DESTROYED STAR DESTROYER?!
It follows both the original characters and several new ones. A complete list of every character appearing in the film was just released and – WHAT IS UP WITH THE SILVER STORMTROOPER?! (His name is Captain Phasma.)
Umm… moving on. The trailer once again shows some familiar vehicles with the new X-Wings and the Millennium Falcon, both of which appeared in the first teaser. It also shows some new stomtroopers, the presumably big bad Sith known as Kylo Ren, and a few other – HAN!!!
Ok, look, I’m going to need some time to process this all. Talk amongst yourselves.
Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awake hits theaters on December 18, 2015. Disney is then planning the first of at least two spinoffs, titled Rogue One, with Episode VIII scheduled for May 26, 2017.
