The first teaser trailer for ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ has finally appeared online… and it gives us our first glimpse at galaxy far, far away since ‘Return of the Jedi’.
It’s been over thirty years since we first saw the destruction of the second Death Star. And with the galaxy celebrating the fall of the Empire, it looked as though peace may finally have arrived in the galaxy far, far away.
But now, we get our first glimpse of ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’… and we’re pretty excited already.
Appearing online at iTunes Movie Trailers, the highly-anticipated teaser trailer gives us our first look at John Boyega in the upcoming ‘Star Wars’ sequel. And I have to admit, he really nails the part. At least, in the small snippet we’ve seen.
“There has been an awakening,” says the ominous voice of the trailer’s (presumably) evil narrator. “Have you felt it?”
Opening with a tremendously frantic show of John boyega, we’re introduced to some all new droids, some amazing speeders and even a brief glimpse of the all-new stormtroopers… not to mention the rather awesome ‘Star Wars VII’ villain.
Of course, the awesome fly-by of the Millennium Falcon is a sight to behold… I mean, how cool is that? But the main talking point will be the brief glimpse of our new villain and his epic new lightsaber. It honestly sends chills down my spine.
But while we’re reacquainted with our old friend the Falcon, there are some other it seems who didn’t quite make the cut…
Notably absent are the original ‘Star Wars’ trio – Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher. But while we’re left wondering what’s happened to these classic ‘Star Wars’ icons, there’s still plenty we can take away from this rather awesome teaser.
And most importantly, the all-new cast members look as though they’ve always been a part of the galaxy far, far away.
‘Star Wars VII’ appears in cinemas on 18 December 2015.
